John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 7:33

But the married careth for the things of the world — And it in his duty so to do, so far as becomes a Christian. How he may please his wife — And provide all things needful for her and his family.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 7:33

But he that is married (e) careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please [his] wife.

(e) Those that are married have their minds drawn here and there, and therefore if any man has the gift of continency, it is more advantageous for him to live alone. But those who are married may care for the things of the Lord also. Clement, Strom. 3.
