1 Corinthians 6

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16]

6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to be judged before the unjust, and not before the saints ?

6:2 Know you not that the saints shall judge this world ? And if the world shall be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters ?

6:3 Know you not that we shall judge angels ? how much more things of this world ?

6:4 If therefore you have judgments of things pertaining to this world, set them to judge, who are the most despised in the church.

6:5 I speak to your shame. Is it so that there is not among you any one wise man, that is able to judge between his brethren ?

6:6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before unbelievers.

6:7 Already indeed there is plainly a fault among you, that you have lawsuits one with another. Why do you not rather take wrong? Why do you not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

6:8 But you do wrong and defraud, and that to your brethren.

6:9 Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,

6:10 Nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God.

6:11 And such some of you were; but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Spirit of our God.

6:12 All things are lawful to me, but all things are not expedient. All things are lawful to me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

6:13 Meat for the belly, and the belly for the meats; but God shall destroy both it and them: but the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.

6:14 Now God hath both raised up the Lord, and will raise us up also by his power.

6:15 Know you 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.

6:16 Or know you not, that he who is joined to a harlot, is made one body ? For they shall be, saith he, two in one flesh.

6:17 But he who is joined to the Lord, is one spirit.

6:18 Fly fornication. Every sin that a man doth, is without the body; but he that committeth fornication, sinneth against his own body.

6:19 Or know you not, that your members are the temple of the Holy Ghost, who is in you, whom you have from God; and you are not your own ?

6:20 For you are bought with a great price. Glorify and bear God in your body.
