Concerning Believers and Legal Matters
6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to trial before the unjust, and not before the set apart ones?
6:2 Do you not know that the set apart ones shall judge olam hazeh? and if olam hazeh shall be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
6:3 Know you not that we shall judge malachim? how much more things that pertain to this life?
6:4 If then you have mishpatim of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the assembly.
6:5 I say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not among you one wise man who will be able to cause agreement between a brother and his brother?
6:6 But brother goes to trial with brother, and that before the unbelievers.
6:7 To have lawsuits at all with one another is already a defeat for you. Why not rather suffer wrong? Why not rather be deprived (cheated)?
6:8 No, you yourselves do wrong and cheat, and you do these things to your achim!
6:9 Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of Elohim (אלהים)? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of Elohim (אלהים).
6:11 And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of Adonay Yehoshua (יהושע), and by the Ruach of our Elohim (אלהים).
6:12 "Everything is permissible for me"—but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible for me"—but I will not be controlled (exousiazo) by anything.
6:13 Food is for the stomach, and the stomach is for food: but Elohim (אלהים) shall destroy both it and them. Now the body [is] not for fornication, but for Adonay; and Adonay for the body.
6:14 And Elohim (אלהים) have both raised up Adonay, and will also raise up us by his own power.
6:15 Know you not that your bodies are the members of Mashiach? shall I then take the members of Mashiach, and make [them] the members of an harlot? Chalilah (Far be it).
6:16 What? know you not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, says he, shall be one flesh.
6:17 But he that is joined to Adonay is ONE spirit.
6:18 Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.
6:19 What? know you not that your body is Beit haMikdash of the Ruach HaKodesh [which is] in you, which you have of Elohim (אלהים), and you are not your own?
6:20 For you are bought with a price: therefore glorify Elohim (אלהים) in your body, and in your spirit, which are Elohim (אלהים)'s.
