6 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and anot before the saints? 2 Do ye not know that bthe saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3 Know ye not that we shall cjudge angels? how much more things dthat pertain to this life? 4 If then ye have judgments of things dpertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. 5 eI speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to fjudge between his brethren? 6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers. 7 Now therefore there is gutterly a hfault among you, because ye go to law one with another. iWhy do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? 8 Nay, ye do wrong, jand defraud, and that your brethren. 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous kshall not inherit the kingdom of God? lBe not deceived: kneither mnofornicators, nor oidolaters, nor nadulterers, nor effeminate, nor mpabusers of themselves with mankind, 10 kNor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were qsome of you: but rye are washed, but sye are sanctified, but tye are justified uin the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
12 xAll things are lawful unto me, xbut all things are not ||expedient: xall things are lawful for me, but I will not be ybrought under the power of any. 13 zMeats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but afor the Lord; and bthe Lord for the body. 14 And cGod hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us dby his own power. 15 Know ye not that eyour bodies are bthe members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? fGod forbid. 16 What? know ye not that he which is gjoined to an harlot is one body? for htwo, saith he, shall be one flesh. 17 But ihe that is gjoined unto the Lord is one spirit. 18 kFlee lfornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth magainst his own body. 19 What? know ye not that nyour body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and boye are not your own? 20 For pye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, bwhich are God’s.
