Lawsuits Discouraged

1 Does any one of you, when he has a case F55 against his neighbor, dare to go to law before the unrighteous and not R203 before the saints? F56 2 Or do R204 you not know that the R205 saints F57 will judge the R206 world? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to constitute F58 the smallest law courts? 3 Do R207 you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life? 4 So if you have law courts dealing with matters of this life, do F59 you appoint them as judges who are of no account in the church? 5 I R208 say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not among you one wise man who will be able to decide between his brethren, R209 6 but brother goes to law with brother, and that before unbelievers? R210

7 Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you have lawsuits with one another. Why R211 not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded? 8 On the contrary, you yourselves wrong and defraud. You do this even to your brethren. R212

9 Or do R213 you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit R214 the kingdom of God? Do R215 not be deceived; neither R216 fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, F60 nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit R217 the kingdom of God. 11 Such R218 were some of you; but you were washed, R219 but you were sanctified, R220 but you were justified R221 in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

The Body Is the Lord's

12 All R222 things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 Food R223 is for the stomach F61 and the stomach F61 is for food, but God will do R224 away with both of F62 them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but for R225 the Lord, and the R226 Lord is for the body. 14 Now God has not only raised R227 the Lord, but will R228 also raise us up through His power. 15 Do R229 you not know that your R230 bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May R231 it never be! 16 Or do R232 you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, "THE R233 TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH." 17 But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one R234 spirit with Him. 18 Flee R235 immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral F63 man sins against his own body. 19 Or do R236 you not know that your R237 body is a temple F64 of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, F65 and that you R238 are not your own? 20 For you R239 have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your R240 body.
