Dare any of you, hauing businesse with another, be iudged vnder the vniust, and not rather vnder ye saintes?
Do ye not knowe that the saintes shall iudge the worlde?
If the worlde shalbe iudged by you, are ye vnworthy to iudge the smallest matters?
Know ye not howe that we shal iudge the angels?
Howe much more thinges that parteyne to this lyfe?
If then ye haue iudgement of thinges parteynyng to this lyfe, set vp them to iudge whiche are least esteemed in the Churche.
I speake it to your shame: Is it so that there is not a wyse man among you?
no not one that can iudge betwene brother and brother?
But one brother goeth to law with another, and that vnder the vnbeleuers?
Nowe therefore there is vtterly a fault among you, because ye go to lawe one with another: Why rather suffer ye not wrong?
why rather suffer ye not harme?
Nay, ye your selues do wrong, and do harme, and that to your brethren.
Knowe ye not that the vnrighteous shall not inherite the kingdome of God?
Be not deceaued: neither fornicatours, nor idolatours, nor adulterers, nor weaklinges, nor abusers of them selues with mankinde,
Nor theeues, nor couetous, nor drunckardes, nor cursed speakers, nor pyllers, shall inherite the kingdome of God.
And such were some of you: but ye are wasshed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are iustified in the name of the Lord Iesus, and by the spirite of our God.
All thinges are lawfull vnto me, but al thinges are not profitable: Al things are lawfull vnto me, but I will not be brought vnder the power of any.
Meates [are ordeyned] for the belly, and the belly for meates: but God shall destroy both it, and them.
Nowe the body [is] not for fornication: but for the Lorde, and the Lorde for the body.
And God both hath raysed vp the Lorde, and also shall rayse vs vp by his power.
Knowe ye not that your bodies are the members of Christe?
Shall I then take the members of Christe, and make them the members of an harlot?
God forbyd.
Know ye not, that he whiche coupleth him selfe with an harlot, is one body?
For two (sayth he) shalbe one fleshe.
But he that is ioyned vnto the Lord is one spirite.
Flee fornication.
Euery synne that a man doeth, is without the body: but he that committeth fornication, sinneth against his owne body.
Knowe ye not that your body is the temple of the holy ghost [whiche is] in you, whom ye haue of God, and ye are not your owne?
For ye are dearely bought: therefore glorifie God in your body and in your spirite, which are Gods.
