6 Dare any of you having a matter against his brother Sue for judgment before the unrighteous And not before the saints?
2 Or know ye not That the saints shall judge the world? And if by you the world is to be judged Unworthy are ye of the smallest judgment-seats?
3 Know ye not That we shall judge messengers? And not then matters of this life?
4 If then for matters of this life ye have judgment-seats Them who are of no account in the assembly these are ye seating thereupon?
5 With a view to shame you am I speaking. So is it possible that there is among you—not so much as one wise man who shall be able to judge between his brethren,—
6 But brother with brother sueth for judgment, And that before unbelievers?
7 Already indeed it is an utter defeat for you, that ye are having law-suits one with another. Wherefore are ye not rather taking wrong? Wherefore are ye not rather suffering yourselves to be defrauded?
8 Nay! but ye are doing wrong and defrauding,—and that [your] brethren.
9 Or know ye not That wrong-doers shall not inherit God’s kingdom? Be not deceiving yourselves:—Neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers nor effeminate nor sodomites
10 nor thieves nor covetous nor drunkards nor revilers nor extortioners—Shall inherit God’s kingdom.
11 And these things were some of you; But ye bathed them away,—But ye were sanctified, But ye were justified In the name of [our] Lord Jesus Christ, And in the Spirit of our God.
12 All things unto me are allowable, But not all things are profitable: All things unto me are allowable, But I will not be brought under authority by any.
13 Foods for the belly, and the belly for foods; But God will set aside both it and them. The body however is not for fornication, but for the Lord,—and the Lord for the body.
14 God moreover hath both raised up the Lord, And will raise us up from among [the dead] through his power.
15 Know ye not That your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of the Christ and make them members of a harlot? Far be it!
16 Or know ye not That he that joineth himself unto the harlot is one body? For saith he, the two shall become one flesh;
17 But he that joineth himself unto the Lord is one Spirit.
18 Flee fornication! Every sin, whatsoever a man shall commit is outside his body, But he that committeth fornication bringeth sin into his own body.
19 Or know ye not That your body is a shrine of the Holy Spirit that is within you which ye have from God? And ye are not your own;—
20 For ye have been bought with a price! Therefore glorify God in your body.
