1 Corinthians 6
The Corinthians must not vex their brethren, in going to law with them:
1 Corinthians 6:1 Dare any of you, hauing businesse against an other, be iudged vnder the vniust, and not vnder the Saintes? 1 Corinthians 6:2 Doe ye not knowe, that the Saintes shall iudge the worlde? If the worlde then shalbe iudged by you, are ye vnworthie to iudge the smallest matters? 1 Corinthians 6:3 Knowe ye not that we shall iudge the Angels? howe much more, things that perteine to this life? 1 Corinthians 6:4 If then ye haue iudgements of things perteining to this life, set vp them which are least esteemed in the Church. 1 Corinthians 6:5 I speake it to your shame. Is it so that there is not a wise man among you? no not one, that can iudge betweene his brethren?
especially under infidels.
1 Corinthians 6:6 But a brother goeth to law with a brother, and that vnder the infidels. 1 Corinthians 6:7 Nowe therefore there is altogether infirmitie in you, in that yee goe to lawe one with another: why rather suffer ye not wrong? why rather susteine yee not harme? 1 Corinthians 6:8 Nay, yee your selues doe wrong, and doe harme, and that to your brethren.
The unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Knowe yee not that the vnrighteous shall not inherite the kingdome of God? Be not deceiued: neither fornicatours, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor wantons, nor buggerers, 1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor theeues, nor couetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners shall inherite the kingdome of God. 1 Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you: but yee are washed, but yee are sanctified, but yee are iustified in the Name of the Lorde Iesus, and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:12 All thinges are lawfull vnto mee, but all thinges are not profitable. I may doe all things, but I will not be brought vnder the power of any thing. 1 Corinthians 6:13 Meates are ordeined for the bellie, & the belly for the meates: but God shall destroy both it, and them. Nowe the bodie is not for fornication, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the bodie. 1 Corinthians 6:14 And God hath also raised vp the Lord, and shall raise vs vp by his power.
Our bodies are the members of Christ.
1 Corinthians 6:15 Knowe yee 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.
They must not therefore be defiled.
1 Corinthians 6:16 Doe ye not knowe, that he which coupleth himselfe with an harlot, is one body? for two, sayeth he, shalbe one flesh. 1 Corinthians 6:17 But hee that is ioyned vnto the Lorde, is one spirite. 1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication: euery sinne that a man doeth, is without the bodie: but hee that committeth fornication, sinneth against his owne bodie.
They are temples of the Holy Ghost.
1 Corinthians 6:19 Knowe yee not, that your body is the temple of the holy Ghost, which is in you, whom ye haue of God? and yee are not your owne. 1 Corinthians 6:20 For yee are bought for a price: therefore glorifie God in your bodie, and in your spirit: for they are Gods.
