2Or1do you not know that 2the asaints will judge3the world ? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to bconstitute the smallestlawcourts ?
34Do you not know that we will judgeangels ? Howmuchmorematters of this life ?
4Soif you havelawcourts dealing with matters of this life, cdo you appoint them as judges who are of noaccount in the church ?
55I say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not among you onewisemanwho will be able to decidebetween his 6brethren,
but brothergoes to law with brother, and that before7unbelievers ?
7Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you havelawsuits with oneanother. 8Why not rather be wronged ? Why not rather be defrauded ?
On the contrary, you yourselveswrong and defraud. You do thiseven to your 9brethren.
9Or10do you not know that the unrighteous will not 11inherit the kingdom of God ? 12Do not be deceived ; 13neitherfornicators, noridolaters, noradulterers, nordeffeminate, norhomosexuals,
10northieves, nor the covetous, nordrunkards, norrevilers, norswindlers, will 14inherit the kingdom of God.
1115Such were some of you; but you were 16washed, but you were 17sanctified, but you were 18justified in the name of the LordJesusChrist and in the Spirit of our God.
