The First Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians   6: 13- 15, 17-20

6:13 Food is for the stomach, and the stomach is for food. But God shall destroy both the stomach and food. And the body is not for fornication, but rather for the Lord; and the Lord is for the body.
6:14 Truly, God has raised up the Lord, and he will raise us up by his power.
6:15 Do you not know that your bodies are a part of Christ? So then, should I take a part of Christ and make it a part of a harlot? Let it not be so!
6:17 But whoever is joined to the Lord is one spirit.
6:18 Flee from fornication. Every sin whatsoever that a man commits is outside of the body, but whoever fornicates, sins against his own body.
6:19 Or do you not know that your bodies are the Temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?
6:20 For you have been bought at a great price. Glorify and carry God in your body.
