Abstract This chapter stresses ethical behaviour as the key component of ‘holiness’ in this context. Against his normal practice of predicating ‘holy’ only of members of the church, Paul here predicates it of the unconverted partner in a mixed marriage and of children who are technically unbelievers, because their comportment conformed to what he expected of Christians. The unbeliever, who consented to remain in the marriage, in fact obeyed both the divine directive quoted in 1 Cor 6: 16 and Jesus' prohibition of divorce cited in 1 Cor 7: 10–11. Children took their believing parents as role models, and so avoided the false value-system of the world (‘Sin’).
