1 Corinthians 6
The Corinthians must not vex their brethren, in going to law with them:
1 Corinthians 6:1 Darre one of you hauynge busynes wyth another, go to lawe vnder the wycked, & not rather vnder þe saynctes? 1 Corinthians 6:2 Do ye not knowe, that the saynctes shall iudge þe worlde? If the worlde shalbe iudged by you: are ye not good inough to iudge small trifles? 1 Corinthians 6:3 knowe ye not, howe that we shall iudge the angels? Howe moche more, maye we iudge thinges that pertayne to the lyfe? 1 Corinthians 6:4 If ye haue iudgementes of worldely matters, take then whych are despysed in the congregacyon, and make them iudges. 1 Corinthians 6:5 This I saye to youre shame. Is ther vtterly no wyse man amonge you? What not one at all, that can iudge betwene brother and brother,
especially under infidels.
1 Corinthians 6:6 but one brother goeth to lawe wt another: and that vnder the vnbeleuers? 1 Corinthians 6:7 Nowe therfore, there is vtterly a faute amonge you, because ye go to lawe one wyth another. Why rather suffer ye not wronge? why rather suffre ye not your selues to haue harme? 1 Corinthians 6:8 naye, ye youre selues do wronge, and robbe: & that the brethren.
The unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Do ye not knowe, how þt the vnryghteous shall not inheret þe kyngdome of God? Be not deceaued. For nether fornicatours, nether worshyppers of ymages, nether aduoutrers, nether weaklynges, nether abusers of them selues wyth mankynde, 1 Corinthians 6:10 nether theues, nether couetouse, nether dronkardes, nether cursed speakers, nether pyllers, shall inheret the kyngdome of God. 1 Corinthians 6:11 And soch were some of you, but ye are wasshed: but ye are sanctifyed: but ye are iustifyed by the name of the Lorde Iesus, & by the sprete of oure God. 1 Corinthians 6:12 I maye do all thynges, but all thynges are not profytable. I maye do all thynges: but I will be brought vnder no mans power. 1 Corinthians 6:13 Meates are ordeyned for the belly, & þe belly for meates: but God shall destroye both it and them. Let not the body be applyed vnto fornicacyon, but vnto the Lorde, and the Lorde vnto the body. 1 Corinthians 6:14 God hath raysed vp þe Lorde, and shall rayse vs vp by hys power.
Our bodies are the members of Christ.
1 Corinthians 6:15 Ether knowe ye not, þt youre bodyes are þe membres of Christ? shall I nowe take þe members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbyd.
They must not therefore be defiled.
1 Corinthians 6:16 Do ye not knowe, that he whych coupleth hym selfe wt an harlot, is become one body. For two (sayth he) shalbe one flesshe. 1 Corinthians 6:17 But he that is ioyned vnto the Lorde is one sprete. 1 Corinthians 6:18 Fle fornicacion. Euery synne þt a man doth, is without the body. But he that is a fornicator, synneth against his awne body.
They are temples of the Holy Ghost.
1 Corinthians 6:19 Ether knowe ye not, how þt youre bodyes are þe temple of þe holy ghost, which dwelleth in you, whom ye haue of God, and how that ye are not youre awne? 1 Corinthians 6:20 For ye are dearly bought. Therfore glorifye God in youre bodyes, and in youre spretes, which are Goddes.
