Does anyone of you, when he has a acaseagainst his neighbor, dare to go to lawbefore the unrighteous and 1not before the bsaints?
2Or2do you not know that 3the csaints will judge4the world? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to dconstitute the smallestlawcourts?
35Do you not know that we will judgeangels? Howmuchmorematters of this life?
4Soif you havelawcourts dealing with matters of this life, edo you appoint them as judges who are of noaccount in the church?
56I say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not among you onewisemanwho will be able to decidebetween his 7brethren,
but brothergoes to law with brother, and that before8unbelievers?
7Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you havelawsuits with oneanother. 9Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded?
On the contrary, you yourselveswrong and defraud. You do thiseven to your 10brethren.
9Or11do you not know that the unrighteous will not 12inherit the kingdom of God? 13Do not be deceived; 14neitherfornicators, noridolaters, noradulterers, norfeffeminate, norhomosexuals,
10northieves, nor the covetous, nordrunkards, norrevilers, norswindlers, will 15inherit the kingdom of God.
1116Such were some of you; but you were 17washed, but you were 18sanctified, but you were 19justified in the name of the LordJesusChrist and in the Spirit of our God.
