New Living Translation
You say, "Food was made for the stomach, and the stomach for food." (This is true, though someday God will do away with both of them.) But you can't say that our bodies were made for sexual immorality. They were made for the Lord, and the Lord cares about our bodies.
King James Bible
Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
Darby Bible Translation
Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats; but God will bring to nothing both it and them: but the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation

1 Corinthians 6:19
Don't you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself,
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there.
For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church.
