1 Corinthians 6

Lawsuits Discouraged

1Does any one of you, when he has a
Lit matter
case against his neighbor, dare to go to law before the unrighteous and b  not before the
Or holy ones
2Or d  do you not know that e  the
V 1, note 2
saints will judge g  the world? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to
Or try the trivial cases?
constitute the smallest law courts?
3 i  Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life? 4So if you have law courts dealing with matters of this life
Or appoint them...church
do you appoint them as judges who are of no account in the church?
5 k  I say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not among you one wise man who will be able to decide between his l  brethren, 6but brother goes to law with brother, and that before m  unbelievers?

7Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you have lawsuits with one another. n  Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded? 8On the contrary, you yourselves wrong and defraud. You do this even to your o  brethren.

9Or p  do you not know that the unrighteous will not q  inherit the kingdom of God? r  Do not be deceived; s  neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor
I.e. effeminate by perversion
effeminate, nor homosexuals,
10nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will u  inherit the kingdom of God. 11 v  Such were some of you; but you were w  washed, but you were x  sanctified, but you were y  justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

The Body Is the Lord’s

12 z  All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 aa  Food is for the
Lit belly
stomach and the
Lit belly
stomach is for food, but God will ad  do away with both
Lit it and them
of them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but af  for the Lord, and ag  the Lord is for the body.
14Now God has not only ah  raised the Lord, but ai  will also raise us up through His power. 15 aj  Do you not know that ak  your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? al  May it never be! 16Or am  do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says an  The two shall become one flesh.” 17But the one who joins himself to the Lord is ao  one spirit with Him. 18 ap  Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the
Or one who practices immorality
immoral man sins against his own body.
19Or ar  do you not know that as  your body is a
Or sanctuary
temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from
Or God? And you...own
God, and that av  you are not your own?
20For aw  you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in ax  your body.
