    VERSE (38) -
    :28

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:38

    Así que, el que la da en casamiento, bien hace; y el que no la da en casamiento, hace mejor.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 38. So then he that giveth [her] in
    marriage doth well , etc.] Does that which is in its own nature good; that which is agreeable to the will of God, is of his institution and appointment, and therefore must be good, and answer many good ends and purposes. Such an one that marries his daughter, he seeing a necessity for it, and a propriety in it, does a very good thing; secures her chastity, and his own credit; prevents fornication, and other evils that might follow; consults the good of mankind, and the honour of religion. But he that giveth [her] not in marriage doth better ; not a better action in itself, simply considered; but more profitable and advantageous under such and such circumstances, with such and such conditions and consequences; since hereby a single person is more fit to encounter with and endure persecutions, is freer from the cares of life, and more at liberty to wait upon the Lord, and give up himself to his service.

    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 __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    7:38 {Doeth well} (kalws poiei). So
    Paul commends the father who gives his daughter in marriage (gamizei). this verb gamizw has not been found outside the N.T. See on Mt 22:30. {Shall do better} (kreisson poiesei). In view of the present distress (#7:26) and the shortened time (#7:29). And yet, when all is said, Paul leaves the whole problem of getting married an open question to be settled by each individual case.
