I Corinthians 6 (asv)
I Corinthians 6 (asv)
6:1Dare any of you, having a matter against his neighbor, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints? 6:2Or know ye not that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world is judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 6:3Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more, things that pertain to this life? 6:4If then ye have to judge things pertaining to this life, do ye set them to judge who are of no account in the church? 6:5I say this to move you to shame. What, cannot there be found among you one wise man who shall be able to decide between his brethren, 6:6but brother goeth to law with brother, and that before unbelievers? 6:7Nay, already it is altogether a defect in you, that ye have lawsuits one with another. Why not rather take wrong? why not rather be defrauded? 6:8Nay, but ye yourselves do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren. 6:9Or know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with men, 6:10nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 6:11And such were some of you: but ye were washed, but ye were sanctified, but ye were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God. 6:12All things are lawful for me; but not all things are expedient. All things are lawful for me; but I will not be brought under the power of any. 6:13Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall bring to nought both it and them. But the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body: 6:14and God both raised the Lord, and will raise up as through his power. 6:15Know ye not that your bodies are members of Christ? shall I then take away the members of Christ, and make them members of a harlot? God forbid. 6:16Or know ye not that he that is joined to a harlot is one body? for, The twain, saith he, shall become one flesh. 6:17But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. 6:18Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 6:19Or know ye not that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have from God? and ye are not your own; 6:20for ye were bought with a price: glorify God therefore in your body.
