1 Corinthians 6:19New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

19 Do you not know that your body is a temple[a] of the holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?

Footnotes:

  1. 6:19–20 Paul’s vision becomes trinitarian. A temple: sacred by reason of God’s gift, his indwelling Spirit. Not your own: but “for the Lord,” who acquires ownership by the act of redemption. Glorify God in your body: the argument concludes with a positive imperative to supplement the negative “avoid immorality” of 1 Cor 6:18. Far from being a terrain that is morally indifferent, the area of sexuality is one in which our relationship with God (and his Christ and his Spirit) is very intimately expressed: he is either highly glorified or deeply offended.
