1 Corinthians



The first epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians, chapter 6, New English Translation and King James Version

Chapter 6

New English Translation


   Lawsuits
   1 When any of you has a legal dispute with another, does he dare go to court before the unrighteous rather than before the saints? 2 Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you not competent to settle trivial suits? 3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? Why not ordinary matters! 4 So if you have ordinary lawsuits, do you appoint as judges those who have no standing in the church? 5 I say this to your shame! Is there no one among you wise enough to settle disputes between fellow Christians? 6 Instead, does a Christian sue a Christian, and do this before unbelievers? 7 The fact that you have lawsuits among yourselves demonstrates that you have already been defeated. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? 8 But you yourselves wrong and cheat, and you do this to your brothers and sisters!
   9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, passive homosexual partners, practicing homosexuals, 10 thieves, the greedy, drunkards, the verbally abusive, and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Some of you once lived this way. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the LORD Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
   Flee Sexual Immorality
   12 "All things are lawful for me" - but not everything is beneficial. "All things are lawful for me" - but I will not be controlled by anything. 13 "Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, but God will do away with both." The body is not for sexual immorality, but for the LORD, and the LORD for the body. 14 Now God indeed raised the LORD and he will raise us by his power. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Should I take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! 16 Or do you not know that anyone who is united with a prostitute is one body with her? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh." 17 But the one united with the LORD is one spirit with him. 18 Flee sexual immorality! "Every sin a person commits is outside of the body" - but the immoral person sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God with your body.

King James Version


   1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?
   2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
   3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
   4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
   5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
   6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.
   7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?
   8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.
   9 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 mankind,
   10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
   11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
   12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
   13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
   14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.
   15 Know ye 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.
   16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
   17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
   18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
   19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
   20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
