How dare one of you with a complaint against another go to court before pagan judges and not before God's people?
Don't you know that God's people are going to judge the universe? If you are going to judge the universe, are you incompetent to judge these minor matters?
Don't you know that we will judge angels, not to mention affairs of everyday life?
So if you require judgments about matters of everyday life, why do you put them in front of men who have no standing in the Messianic Community?
I say, shame on you! Can it be that there isn't one person among you wise enough to be able to settle a dispute between brothers?
Instead, a brother brings a lawsuit against another brother, and that before unbelievers!
Actually, if you are bringing lawsuits against each other, it is already a defeat for you. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated?
