This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 7:12. Τοῖς δὲ λοιποῖς) but to the rest, who are living in marriage.-ἐγὼ, I) see 1Co 7:25, note.-λέγω, I say) he does not use the expression, I command, as in 1Co 7:10. I say, viz. this, which is spoken of, 1Co 7:12-13; 1Co 7:15-16, and mostly indeed at 1Co 7:15-16; for if 1Co 7:12-14, be considered separately, they flow from 1Co 7:10.-συνευδοκεῖ, she be pleased) There might be many, who either doubted or were not averse from the faith.-Μὴ ἀφιέτω, let him not put away) This rule was stricter in the Old Testament. That the difference between the Old and New Testament is here regarded, we gather from 1Co 7:18; 1Co 7:15, note.
