1 Corinthians 6:9-209Or do you not know that the unrighteous ▼
▼Or wrongdoerswill not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: bneither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, ▼
▼The two Greek terms translated by this phrase refer to the passive and active partners in consensual homosexual acts10nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11And dsuch were some of you. But eyou were washed, fyou were sanctified, gyou were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
Flee Sexual Immorality12 h“All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything. 13 i“Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one jand the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but kfor the Lord, and lthe Lord for the body. 14And mGod raised the Lord and nwill also raise us up oby his power. 15Do you not know that pyour bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! 16Or do you not know that he who is joined ▼
▼Or who holds fast (compare Genesis 2:24 and Deuteronomy 10:20); also verse 17to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, r“The two will become one flesh.” 17But he who is joined to the Lord sbecomes one spirit with him. 18 tFlee from sexual immorality. Every other sin ▼
▼Or Every sina person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person vsins against his own body. 19Or wdo you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? xYou are not your own, 20 yfor you were bought with a price. zSo glorify God in your body.
