1 Corinthians 6


Lawsuits among the Saints

Dare any one of you, [2a thing 1having] against the other, plead before the unjust, and not before the holy ones? Do you not know that the holy ones [2the 3world 1shall judge]? And if by you [3is judged 1the 2world], are you unworthy of the judgment seat of the least? Do you not know that [2angels 1we shall judge]? how much more indeed of the cares of life? [6the cares of life 5as to 3then 4the judgment seat 1If 2you have] of the ones being treated with contempt, [3in 4the 5assembly 2of these 1then do you sit]? To make you ashamed I speak. So is there not one among you being a wise man, nor one who is able to litigate between his brother? But brother against brother goes to law, and this before unbelievers. Already indeed then utterly [2failure 3among 4you 1there is], for [2lawsuits 1you have] with yourselves. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be deprived? But you do wrong and deprive, and these things of brethren. Or do you not know that the unjust [3the kingdom 4of God 1shall not 2inherit]? Do not be misled; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor soft, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor hoarders of wealth, nor intoxicated ones, nor revilers, nor predacious [2the kingdom 3of God 1shall inherit]. 11 And [3these 1some 2of you were]; but you were washed off, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the spirit of our God.

Sexual Immorality

12 All things to me are allowed, but not all advantageous; all things to me are allowed, but [3not 1I 2shall] be brought under the authority by any. 13 The foods are for the belly, and the belly for the foods; but God [2both 3this body 4and 5these foods 1will render useless]. But the body is not for harlotry, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14  And God [2also 3the 4Lord 1raised up], and will awaken us through his power. 15 Do you not know that your bodies [2members 3of Christ 1are]? Having taken then the members of the Christ, shall I make them [2of a harlot 1members]? May it not be. 16 Or do you not know that the one cleaving to the harlot, [2one 3body 1is]? [5shall be 1For 2he says 3The 4two] for [2flesh 1one]. 17 But the one cleaving to the Lord [2one 3spirit 1is]. 18 Flee harlotry! Every sin which ever [2should commit 1a man 4outside 5of the 6body 3is], but the one committing harlotry [2against 3his own 4body 1sins]. 19 Or do you not know that your body [2a temple 3of the 6in 7you 4holy 5spirit 1is], which you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought of value; glorify [2indeed 1God] in your body, and in your spirit! which is the one of God
