6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law
before the unjust, and not before the saints?
6:2 Do ye not know that the saints will judge the world? and if
the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the
6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more,
things that pertain to this life?
6:4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life,
set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
6:5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise
man among you? no, not one that will be able to judge between
6:6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before
6:7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye
go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong?
why do ye not rather [suffer yourselves to] be defrauded?
6:8 But ye do wrong, and defraud, and that [your] brethren.
6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the
kingdom of God? Be not deceived; neither fornicators, nor
idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of
themselves with mankind,
6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor
extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are
sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus,
and by the Spirit of our God.
6:12 All things are lawful to me, but all things are not
expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be
brought under the power of any.
6:13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God will
destroy both it and them. Now the body [is] not for lewdness,
but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
6:14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise
up us by his own power.
6:15 Know ye not, that your bodies are the members of Christ?
shall I then take the members of Christ, and make [them] the
members of a harlot? By no means.
6:16 What? know ye not that he who is joined to a harlot is one
body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
6:17 But he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit.
6:18 Flee lewdness. Every sin that a man doeth, is without the
body; but he that committeth lewdness, sinneth against his own
6:19 What, know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy
Spirit [which is] in you, which ye have from God, and ye are
not your own?
6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in
your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
