1 Corinthians 6 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Dare any one of you, having a matter against another, prosecute his suit before the unjust, and not before the saints? 2 Do ye not then know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world is judged by you, are ye unworthy of [the] smallest judgments? a 3 Do ye not know that we shall judge angels? and not then matters of this life? 4 If then ye have judgments as to things of this life, set those [to judge] who are little esteemed in the assembly. 5 I speak to you [to put you] to shame. Thus there is not a wise person among you, not even one, who shall be able to decide between his brethren! b 6 But brother prosecutes his suit with brother, and that before unbelievers. 7 Already indeed then it is altogether a fault in you that ye have suits between yourselves. Why do ye not rather suffer wrong? why are ye not rather defrauded? 8 But *ye* do wrong, and defraud, and this [your] brethren. 9 Do ye not know that unrighteous [persons] shall not inherit [the] kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who make women of themselves, nor who abuse themselves with men, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor abusive persons, nor [the] rapacious, shall inherit [the] kingdom of God. 11 And these things were some of you; but ye have been washed, c but ye have been sanctified, but ye have been justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by d the Spirit of our God. 12 All things are lawful to me, but all things do not profit; all things are lawful to me, but *I* will not be brought under the power of any. 13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats; but God will bring to nothing both it and them: but the body [is] not for fornication, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 And God has both raised up the Lord, and will raise us up from among [the dead] by his power. 15 Do ye not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then, taking the members of the Christ, make [them] members of a harlot? Far be the thought. 16 Do ye not know that he [that is] joined to the harlot is one body? for the two, he says, shall be one flesh. e 17 But he that [is] joined to the Lord is one Spirit. 18 Flee fornication. Every sin which a man may practise is without the body, but he that commits fornication sins against his own body. 19 Do ye not know that your body is [the] temple of the Holy Spirit which [is] in you, which ye have of God; and ye are not your own? 20 for ye have been bought with a price: glorify now then God in your body.
