1 Corinthians 6

Dare any of you, when he hath a controversy with his brother, litigate before the iniquitous, and not before the sanctified? Or know ye not, that the sanctified will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are ye unfit to decide trivial causes? Know ye not, that we shall judge angels? How much more things that are of the world? But if ye have a controversy about a worldly matter, seat ye on the bench for you those who are contemned in the church! For shame to you I say it. So, there is not even one wise man among you, who is competent to do equity between a brother and his brother: but a brother litigateth with his brother, and also before them that believe not! Now therefore ye condemn yourselves, in that ye have litigation one with another. For why do ye not rather suffer wrong? why not rather be defrauded? But ye yourselves commit wrong, and ye defraud even your brethren. Or do ye not know, that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not mistake; neither whoremongers, nor idol-worshippers, nor adulterers, nor debauchers, nor liers with males, 10 nor the avaricious, nor thieves, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And these things have been in some of you: but ye are washed, and are sanctified, and made righteous, in the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah, and by the Spirit of our God. 12 Every thing is in my power : but every thing is not profitable to me. Every thing is in my power; but none of them shall have dominion over me. 13 Food is for the belly; and the belly is for food; but God will bring them both to naught. But the body is not for whoredom, but for our Lord; and our Lord for the body. 14 And God hath raised up our Lord; and he will raise us up, by his power. 15 Know ye not, that your bodies are the members of the Messiah? Shall one take a member of the Messiah, and make it the member of a harlot? Far be it. 16 Or know ye not, that whoever joineth himself to a harlot, is one body with her? For it is said, They twain shall be one body. 17 But he that joineth himself to our Lord, is with him one spirit. 18 Flee whoredom. For every other sin which a man committeth, is external to his body; but he that committeth whoredom, sinneth against his own body. 19 Or know ye not, that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who abideth in you, whom ye have received from God? And ye are not your own. 20 For ye are bought with a price. Therefore, glorify ye God, with your body, and with your spirit, which are God's.
