1 Cor 7:25

7:25 Now concerning the betrothed. A new, but related topic that the Corinthians had raised in their letter to Paul (Introduction: Date and Occasion).

I have no command from the Lord. See note on v. 10.

I give my judgment. This language suggests that the comments Paul is about to make are not absolute commandments concerning right-or-wrong moral choices, but recommendations for a particular situation. This interpretation is confirmed by the statement in v. 28 and by the concluding words in v. 38.
