12 But to the rest (A)I say, not the Lord, that if any brother has an unbelieving wife, and she consents to live with him, he must not [a]divorce her. 13 And [b]if any woman has an unbelieving husband, and he consents to live with her, she must not [c]divorce her husband. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified through [d]her believing husband; for otherwise your children are unclean, but now they are (B)holy. 15 Yet if the unbelieving one is leaving, [e]let him leave; the brother or the sister is not under bondage in such cases, but God has called [f]us (C)in peace. 16 For how do you know, wife, whether you will (D)save your husband? Or how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?
