6 If any of you has a legal dispute against another, do you dare go to court w before the unrighteous, x and not before the * saints? 2 Or don’t you know that the saints will judge the * world? And if the world is judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest cases? 3 Don’t you know that we will judge angels—not to mention ordinary matters? 4 So if you have cases pertaining to this life, do you select those y who have no standing z in the church to judge? 5 I say this to your shame! a Can it be that there is not one wise person among you who is able to arbitrate between his * brothers? b 6 Instead, believer c goes to court against believer, and that before unbelievers! d
6:1 Unbelievers; v. 6
6:4 Or life, appoint those (as a command)
6:6–8 * brothers
