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.
