1 Corinthians 6
The Corinthians must not vex their brethren, in going to law with them:
1 Corinthians 6:1 Dare any of you, having, a matter against his brother, sue for judgment before the unrighteous, and not before the saints? 1 Corinthians 6:2 Or know ye not that, the saints, shall judge the world? And, if, by you, the world, is to be judged, unworthy are ye of the smallest judgment-seats? 1 Corinthians 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge, messengers? and not, then, matters of this life? 1 Corinthians 6:4 If, then, for matters of this, life ye have judgment-seats, them who are of no account in the assembly, these, are ye seating thereupon? 1 Corinthians 6:5 With a view to shame you, am I speaking. So, is it possible that there is among younot so much as one wise man, who shall be able to judge between his brethren,
especially under infidels.
1 Corinthians 6:6 But, brother with brother, sueth for judgment, and that before unbelievers? 1 Corinthians 6:7 Already, indeed, it is an utter defeat for you, that ye are having, law-suits, one with another. Wherefore are ye not rather taking wrong? Wherefore are ye not rather suffering yourselves to be defrauded? 1 Corinthians 6:8 Nay! but, ye, are doing wrong, and defrauding,and that [your] brethren.
The unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Or know ye not that, wrong-doers, shall not inherit, God's kingdom? Be not deceiving yourselves:neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor sodomites, 1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortionersshall inherit, God's kingdom. 1 Corinthians 6:11 And, these things, were some of you; but ye bathed them away,but ye were sanctified, but ye were justified, in the name of [our] Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:12 All things, unto me, are allowable, but, not all things, are profitable: all things, unto me, are allowable, but, I, will not be brought under authority by any. 1 Corinthians 6:13 Foods for the belly, and the belly for foods; but, God, will set aside, both it and them. The body, however, is not for fornication, but, for the Lord,and, the Lord, for the body. 1 Corinthians 6:14 God, moreover, hath both raised up, the Lord, and will raise, us, up from among [the dead] through his power.
Our bodies are the members of Christ.
1 Corinthians 6:15 Know ye not that, your bodies, are, members of Christ? Shall I, then, take away the members of the Christ and make them members of a harlot? Far be it!
They must not therefore be defiled.
1 Corinthians 6:16 Or know ye not that, he that joineth himself unto the harlot, is, one body? For, saith he, the two, shall become, one flesh; 1 Corinthians 6:17 But, he that joineth himself unto the Lord, is, one Spirit. 1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication! Every sin, whatsoever a man shall commit, is, outside his body, but, he that committeth fornication, bringeth sin into his own body.
They are temples of the Holy Ghost.
1 Corinthians 6:19 Or know ye not that, your body, is, a shrine of the Holy Spirit that is within you, which ye have from God? And ye are not your own; 1 Corinthians 6:20 For ye have been bought with a price! Therefore glorify God in your body.
