King James Version1 Corinthians6

1 Corinthians

1 Dare any of you, hav­ing a mat­ter against an­oth­er, go to law be­fore the un­just, and not be­fore the saints? 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye un­wor­thy to judge the small­est mat­ters? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge an­gels? how much more things that per­tain to this life? 4 If then ye have judg­ments of things per­tain­ing to this life, set them to judge who are least es­teemed in the church. 5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge be­tween his brethren? 6 But broth­er goeth to law with broth­er, and that be­fore the un­be­liev­ers. 7 Now there­fore there is ut­ter­ly a fault among you, be­cause ye go to law one with an­oth­er. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather ­suf­fer your­selves to be de­fraud­ed? 8 Nay, ye do wrong, and de­fraud, and that your brethren. 9 Know ye not that the un­righ­teous shall not in­her­it the king­dom of God? Be not de­ceived: nei­ther for­ni­ca­tors, nor idol­aters, nor adul­ter­ers, nor ef­fem­i­nate, nor abusers of them­selves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor cov­etous, nor drunk­ards, nor re­vil­ers, nor ex­tor­tion­ers, shall in­her­it the king­dom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanc­ti­fied, but ye are jus­ti­fied in the name of the Lord Je­sus, and by the Spir­it of our God. 12 All things are law­ful unto me, but all things are not ex­pe­di­ent: all things are law­ful for me, but I will not be brought un­der the pow­er of any. 13 Meats for the bel­ly, and the bel­ly for meats: but God shall de­stroy both it and them. Now the body is not for for­ni­ca­tion, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. 14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own pow­er. 15 Know ye not that your bod­ies are the mem­bers of Christ? shall I then take the mem­bers of Christ, and make them the mem­bers of an har­lot? God for­bid. 16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an har­lot is one body? for two, saith he, shall 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 the body; but he that com­mit­teth for­ni­ca­tion sin­neth against his own body. 19 What? know ye not that your body is the tem­ple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price: there­fore glo­ri­fy God in your body, and in your spir­it, which are God's.
