    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:37

    Pero el que est firme en su corazn, y no tiene necesidad, sino que tiene libertad de su voluntad, y determin en su corazn esto, el guardar su hija, bien hace.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 37. Nevertheless, he that standeth steadfast in his
    heart , etc.] The apostle returns to confirm his former advice, where it can be attended to with safety; and observes, that notwithstanding what he had allowed might lawfully be done, and was proper to be done; yet a man that had deliberated upon, and had well weighed the matter of virginity, the case of a single life, and was at a point about in, having no hesitation nor fluctuation of mind concerning it: and also having no necessity; of acting otherwise, either through the meanness of his circumstances, or rather through the weakness of his virgin, she not having the gift of continency: but hath power over his own will ; his daughters will being the same with his, and she entirely consenting to live a single life; otherwise he would have no power of acting as he pleased in such a case: and hath so decreed in his heart : it is a fixed point on mature deliberation, in which he himself is hearty and determined, and his child perfectly assents to it, so that on all hands it is an agreed matter: that he will keep his virgin ; at home with him, unmarried, and not give her to any man in marriage: doth well : or that which is for both temporal and spiritual profit and advantage, as before observed. Some understand all this of a mans keeping his own virginity, and determining to continue unmarried.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 36-40 - The
    apostle is thought to give advice here about the disposal of children in marriage. In this view, the general meaning is plain Children should seek and follow the directions of their parents as to marriage. And parents should consult their children's wishes; and no reckon they have power to do with them, and dictate just as the please, without reason. The whole is closed with advice to widows Second marriages are not unlawful, so that it is kept in mind, to marr in the Lord. In our choice of relations, and change of conditions, we should always be guided by the fear of God, and the laws of God, an act in dependence on the providence of God. Change of condition ough only to be made after careful consideration, and on probable grounds that it will be to advantage in our spiritual concerns __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    37. Necessity (anagkhn). Either outward or
    moral constraint. See on ver. 26, and note on Luke xiv. 18.

    Power over his own will (exousian peri tou idiou qelhmatov). The A.V. is ambiguous, and might be understood to imply self-control. The meaning is rather: is free to act as he pleases. Rev., as touching his own will. The repetition of his own emphasizes the fact that the disposal of the daughter lay wholly in the parent's power. Among the Greeks and Romans the choice of a wife was rarely grounded upon affection. In many cases the father chose for his son a wife whom the latter had never seen, or compelled him to marry for the sake of checking his extravagances. Thus Terence pictures a father meeting his son in the forum, and saving. "You are to be married to-day, get ready" ("Andria," i., 5) Nor was the consent of a woman generally thought necessary. She was obliged to submit to the wishes of her parents, and perhaps to receive a stranger. Thus Hermione says: "My marriage is my father's care: it is not for me to decide about that" (Euripides, "Andromache," 987). Under the patriarchal and Mosaic dispensations, the father's power over the children in the matter of marriage was paramount, and their consent was not required. After the Exile the parents could betroth their children, while minors, at their pleasure; but when they became of age their consent was required, and if betrothed during minority, they had afterward the right of insisting upon divorce.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    7:37 {To keep his own virgin daughter} (terein ten heautou parqenon). this means the case when the virgin daughter does not wish to marry and the father agrees with her, {he shall do well} (kalws poiesei).
