    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:6

    Mas esto digo por permisin, no por mandamiento.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 7:6

    Verse 6. I speak this by permission, &c.] It was a constant
    custom of the more conscientious rabbins, to make a difference between the things which they enjoined on their own judgment, and those which they built on the authority of the law. Thus Rabbi Tancum: "The washing of hands before meat is in our own power; washing after meat is commanded." In relation to this point Dr. Lightfoot produces some examples from the Jewish writers: "The man is commanded concerning begetting and multiplying, but not the woman. And when does the man come under this command? From the age of sixteen or seventeen years; but, if he exceeds twenty years without marrying, behold he violates and renders an affirmative precept vain. The Gemara says: It is forbidden a man to be without a wife; because it is written, It is not good for man to be alone.

    And whosoever gives not himself to generation and multiplying is all one with a murderer: he is as though he diminished from the image of God, &c." We may understand the apostle here as saying that the directions already given were from his own judgment, and not from any Divine inspiration; and we may take it for granted that where he does not make this observation he is writing under the immediate afflatus of the Holy Spirit.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. But I speak this by permission , etc.] Referring either to what he had said before, though not to all; not to ( 1 Corinthians 7:2) that for the avoiding of fornication, every man should make use of his own wife, and every woman of her own husband; since this is not by permission, but by command, ( Genesis 2:24) that carnal copulation should be between one man and one woman in a married state; nor to ( 1 Corinthians 7:3,4) for that married persons ought to render due benevolence to, and not defraud each other, having a power over each others bodies, is a precept, and not a permission, ( Exodus 21:10) but to ( 1 Corinthians 7:5) their parting for a time, and coming together again: it is not an absolute command of God that they should separate for a time, on account of fasting and prayer, but if they thought fit to do so by agreement, they might; nor was there any positive precept for their coming together again directly, after such service was over. The apostle said this, not of commandment ; but, consulting their good, gives this advice, lest Satan should be busy with them, and draw them into sin; but if they had the gift of continence, they might continue apart longer; there was no precise time fixed by God, nor did the apostle pretend to fix any: or it may refer to what follows after, that he would have all men be as he was; though he laid no injunction, but left them to their liberty; unless it can be thought to regard marriage in general, and to be said in opposition to a Jewish notion, which makes marriage hwxm , a command; a man, they say f102 , is bound to this command at seventeen years of age, and if he passes twenty and does not marry, he transgresses, and makes void an affirmative precept; but the apostle puts it as a matter of choice, and not of obligation.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - The
    apostle tells the Corinthians that it was good, in that juncture of time, for Christians to keep themselves single. Yet he says tha marriage, and the comforts of that state, are settled by Divine wisdom Though none may break the law of God, yet that perfect rule leaves me at liberty to serve him in the way most suited to their powers an circumstances, of which others often are very unfit judges. All mus determine for themselves, seeking counsel from God how they ought to act.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    7:6 {By way of permission} (kata sungnwmen). Old word for pardon, concession, indulgence. _Secundum indulgentiam_ (Vulgate). Only here in N.T., though in the papyri for pardon. The word means "knowing together," understanding,
    agreement, and so concession. {Not of commandment} (ou kat' epitagen). Late word (in papyri) from epitassw, old word to enjoin. Paul has not commanded people to marry. He has left it an open question.
