    Ps 55:22 Mt 6:25-34; 13:22 Php 4:6

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:32

    Quisiera, pues, que estuvieseis sin congoja. El soltero tiene cuidado de las cosas que son del Seor, cmo ha de agradar al Seor;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 7:32

    Verse 32. Without carefulness.] Though all these things will shortly come to pass, yet do not be anxious about them. Every occurrence is under the direction and
    management of God. The wrath of man shall praise him, and the remainder of it he shall restrain, and none can harm you if ye be followers of that which is good. We should all take the advice of the poet:- "With patient mind thy course of duty run; God nothing does, nor suffers to be done, But thou wouldst do thyself, couldst thou but see The end of all events as well as He." BYRom.

    He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord] He has nothing to do with a family, and therefore can give his whole time to the service of his Maker, having him alone to please.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 32. But I would have you without carefulness , etc.] This is another reason, by which the apostle confirms the advice he gives to virgins to remain such, because the married state is full of cares, whereas the single life is no more free from them; and therefore he wishes them to continue in such a state, that they might be without anxious and distracting cares of temporal things, things relating to the good decorum and sustenance of a family, and so be more free and at leisure for the service of God; which he illustrates, by showing the different cares that married and unmarried persons are involved in: he that is unmarried, careth for the things that belong to the Lord ; such as hearing the word, reading it, meditating upon it, praying to God and attending upon all ordinances, taking every opportunity to glorify God, and do good to others; but this is not to be understood as matter of fact, that unmarried persons are so studiously concerned for these things, or that this is the case of all of them; there are many unmarried persons think nothing about them; and are not at all concerned with them; but the meaning is, that such persons are more at leisure, and can more conveniently attend to these things, and ought so to do; and they that have the grace of God will be more or less solicitous to observe them: how he may please the Lord ; for when these things are attended to in faith and fear, from a principle of love, and with a view to the glory of God, the good of their own souls and others, they are well pleasing to the Lord; and though they are not meritorious of eternal life, yet they are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ, and will be taken notice of with approbation, and followed with a reward of grace another day.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 25-35 - Considering the
    distress of those times, the unmarried state was best Notwithstanding, the apostle does not condemn marriage. How opposit are those to the apostle Paul who forbid many to marry, and entangl them with vows to remain single, whether they ought to do so or not! He exhorts all Christians to holy indifference toward the world. As to relations; they must not set their hearts on the comforts of the state As to afflictions; they must not indulge the sorrow of the world: eve in sorrow the heart may be joyful. As to worldly enjoyments; here is not their rest. As to worldly employment; those that prosper in trade and increase in wealth, should hold their possessions as though the held them not. As to all worldly concerns; they must keep the world ou of their hearts, that they may not abuse it when they have it in their hands. All worldly things are show; nothing solid. All will be quickl gone. Wise concern about worldly interests is a duty; but to be full of care, to have anxious and perplexing care, is a sin. By this maxim the apostle solves the case whether it were advisable to marry. Tha condition of life is best for every man, which is best for his soul and keeps him most clear of the cares and snares of the world. Let u reflect on the advantages and snares of our own condition in life; tha we may improve the one, and escape as far as possible all injury from the other. And whatever cares press upon the mind, let time still be kept for the things of the Lord.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    32. Without carefulness (amerimnouv). Not a good translation, because carefulness has lost its earlier sense of
    anxiety. So Latimer: "This wicked carefulness of men, when they seek how to live - like as if there were no God at all." See on take no thought, Matt. vi. 25. Rev., free from cares. Ignatius uses the phrase ejn ajmerimnia Qeou in godly carelessness (Polycarp, 7.).

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    7:32 {Free from cares} (amerimnous). Old
    compound adjective (a privative and merimna, anxiety). In N.T. only here and #Mt 28:14 which see. {The things of the Lord} (ta tou kuriou). The ideal state (so as to the widow and the virgin in verse #33), but even the unmarried do let the cares of the world choke the word (#Mr 4:19). {How he may please the Lord} (pws aresei twi kuriwi). Deliberative subjunctive with pws retained in an indirect question. Dative case of kuriwi. Same construction in verse #33 with pws aresei tei gunaiki (his wife) and in #34 pws aresei twi andri (her husband).
