Lawsuits Discouraged

1 Does any one of you, when he has a acase against his neighbor, dare to go to law before the unrighteous and 1not before the bsaints? 2 Or 2do you not know that 3the csaints will judge 4the world? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to dconstitute the smallest law courts? 3 5Do 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, edo you appoint them as judges who are of no account in the church? 5 6I 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 7brethren, 6 but brother goes to law with brother, and that before 8unbelievers? 7 Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you have lawsuits with one another. 9Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded? 8 On the contrary, you yourselves wrong and defraud. You do this even to your 10brethren. 9 Or 11do you not know that the unrighteous will not 12inherit the kingdom of God? 13Do not be deceived; 14neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor feffeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will 15inherit the kingdom of God. 11 16Such were some of you; but you were 17washed, but you were 18sanctified, but you were 19justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
