Lawsuits Discouraged

1 Does any one of you, when he has a 1case against his neighbor, dare to go to law before the unrighteous and anot before the 2saints?

2 Or ado you not know that bthe 1saints will judge cthe world? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to 2constitute the smallest law courts?

3 aDo you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life?

4 So if you have law courts dealing with matters of this life, 1do you appoint them as judges who are of no account in the church?

5 aI say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not among you one wise man who will be able to decide between his bbrethren,

6 but brother goes to law with brother, and that before aunbelievers?

7 Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you have lawsuits with one another. aWhy not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded?

8 On the contrary, you yourselves wrong and defraud. You do this even to your abrethren.

9 Or ado you not know that the unrighteous will not binherit the kingdom of God? cDo not be deceived; dneither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor 1effeminate, nor homosexuals,

10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will ainherit the kingdom of God.

11 aSuch were some of you; but you were bwashed, but you were csanctified, but you were djustified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
