Joseph Smith Translation

JST, 1 Corinthians 7:29–33, 38.

 29 But I speak unto you who are called unto the ministry. For this I say, brethren, the time that remaineth is but short, that ye shall be sent forth unto the ministry. Even they who have wives, shall be as though they had none; for ye are called and chosen to do the Lord’s work.

 30 And it shall be with them who weep, as though they wept not; and them who rejoice, as though they rejoiced not, and them who buy, as though they possessed not;

 31 And them who use this world, as not using it; for the fashion of this world passeth away.

 32 But I would, brethren, that ye magnify your calling. I would have you without carefulness. For he who is unmarried, careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord; therefore he prevaileth.

 33 But he who is married, careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife; therefore there is a difference, for he is hindered.

 38 So then he that giveth himself in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth himself not in marriage doeth better.
