1 Corinthians 6:12-20

CEB 12 I have the freedom to do anything, but not everything is helpful. I have the freedom to do anything, but I won't be controlled by anything. NRS 12 "All things are lawful for me," but not all things are beneficial. "All things are lawful for me," but I will not be dominated by anything. CEB 13 Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, and yet God will do away with both. The body isn't for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body. NRS 13 "Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food," and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is meant not for fornication but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. CEB 14 God has raised the Lord and will raise us through his power. NRS 14 And God raised the Lord and will also raise us by his power. CEB 15 Don't you know that your bodies are parts of Christ? So then, should I take parts of Christ and make them a part of someone who is sleeping around? No way! NRS 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Should I therefore take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! CEB 16 Don't you know that anyone who is joined to someone who is sleeping around is one body with that person? The scripture says, The two will become one flesh. NRS 16 Do you not know that whoever is united to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For it is said, "The two shall be one flesh." CEB 17 The one who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him. NRS 17 But anyone united to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. CEB 18 Avoid sexual immorality! Every sin that a person can do is committed outside the body, except those who engage in sexual immorality commit sin against their own bodies. NRS 18 Shun fornication! Every sin that a person commits is outside the body; but the fornicator sins against the body itself. CEB 19 Or don't you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you? Don't you know that you have the Holy Spirit from God, and you don't belong to yourselves? NRS 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God, and that you are not your own? CEB 20 You have been bought and paid for, so honor God with your body. NRS 20 For you were bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body.
