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.
1220Allthings are lawful for me, but not allthings are profitable. Allthings are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything.
1321Food is for the gstomach and the hstomach is for food, but God will 22doaway with bothiof them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but 23for the Lord, and 24the Lord is for the body.
14NowGod has not only25raised the Lord, but 26will alsoraise us up through His power.
1527Do you not know that 28your bodies are members of Christ ? Shall I thentakeaway the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute ? 29May it never be!
16Or30do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is onebody with her? For He says, "31THE TWO SHALL BECOMEONEFLESH."
But the one who joins himself to the Lord is 32onespirit with Him.
1833Fleeimmorality. Every other sin that a mancommits is outside the body, but the jimmoral man sinsagainst his ownbody.
19Or34do you not know that 35your body is a ktemple of the HolySpirit who is in you, whom you have from lGod, and that 36you are not your own ?
For 37you have been bought with a price : thereforeglorifyGod in 38your body.
