Corinthians Chapter 6
1 Dare any of youhaving a matter against anothergo to lawbefore the unjustand not before the saints
2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the worldand ifthe world shall be judged by youare ye unworthy to judge thesmallest matters
3 Know ye not that we shall judge angelshow much more thingsthat pertain to this life
4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this lifeset them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
5 I speak to your shame. Is it sothat there is not a wise manamong younonot one that shall be able to judge between hisbrethren
6 But brother goeth to law with brotherand that before theunbelievers.
7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among youbecause yego to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded
8 Nayye do wrongand defraudand that your brethren.
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdomof GodBe not deceivedneither fornicatorsnor idolaters nor adulterersnor effeminatenor abusers of themselves withmankind
10 Nor thievesnor covetousnor drunkardsnor revilersnorextortionersshall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of youbut ye are washedbut ye aresanctifiedbut ye are justified in the name of the LordJesusand by the Spirit of our God.
12 All things are lawful unto mebut all things are notexpedientall things are lawful for mebut I will not bebrought under the power of any.
13 Meats for the bellyand the belly for meatsbut God shalldestroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornicationbut for the Lordand the Lord for the body.
14 And God hath both raised up the Lordand will also raise upus by his own power.
15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of ChristshallI then take the members of Christand make them the membersof an harlotGod forbid.
16 Whatknow ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is onebodyfor twosaith heshall be one flesh.
17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without thebodybut he that committeth fornication sinneth against hisown body.
19 Whatknow ye not that your body is the temple of the HolyGhost which is in youwhich ye have of Godand ye are notyour own
20 For ye are bought with a pricetherefore glorify God in yourbodyand in your spiritwhich are God s.
