1 Dare any of you, having an affair with another, be judged by the unjust, and not by the holy ones? 2 Know ye not that the holy ones shall judge the world? and if the world be judged by you, are ye unworthy of the least judgments? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge messengers? also not only things pertaining to the cares of life? 4 Therefore truly, if ye have judgments pertaining to the cares of life, set them counted as nothing in the church. 5 For confusion I speak to you. So is there not one wise with you, who will be able to judge between his brother? 6 But brother with brother is judged, and this by the unbelieving.
7 Therefore truly, already is there wholly a misfortune in you, that ye have judgments with yourselves. Wherefore had ye not rather be treated ill? wherefore had ye not rather be defrauded? 8 But ye treat ill, and defraud, and that the brethren. 9 Or know ye not that the unjust shall not inherit the kingdom of God Be ye not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor sodomites, 10 Nor thieves; nor covetous, nor intoxicated, nor railers, nor rapacious, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And these were some of you: but ye were washed, but ye were consecrated, but ye were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God.
12 All things are lawful to me, but all are not profitable: all are lawful to me, but I will not be exercised by power under any. 13 Foods for the belly, and the belly for foods: and God will also leave unemployed this and them. And the body not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. 14 And God also raised up the Lord, and us will he also raise up by his power. 15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? having taken the members of Christ, shall I make members of a harlot? It may not be. 16 Or know ye not that he joined to a harlot is one body? for they shall be, he says, they two into one flesh. 17 And he joined to the Lord is one spirit.
18 Flee fornication. Every sin which if a man do is without the body; but he committing fornication sins against his own body. 19 Or know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit in you, which ye have from God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye were bought for a price: then glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are of God.
