1 Corinthians 7:17-24New American Standard Bible (NASB)
17 Only, as the Lord has assigned to each one, as God has called each, in this manner let him walk. And so I direct in all the churches.18 Was any man called when he was already circumcised? He is not to become uncircumcised. Has anyone been called in uncircumcision? He is not to be circumcised.19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but what matters isthe keeping of the commandments of God.20 Each man must remain in that [a]condition in which he was called.
21 Were you called while a slave? [b]Do not worry about it; but if you are able also to become free, rather [c]do that.22 For he who was called in the Lord while a slave, is the Lord’s freedman; likewise he who was called while free, is Christ’s slave.23 You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men.24 Brethren, each one is to remain with God in that condition in which he was called.
