1 DARE any of you, having a suit with his brother, to litigate before the evil, and not before the saints?
2 Or know you not that the saints shall judge the world? And if the world by you is judged, are you not worthy to judge small matters?
3 Know you not that you are to judge angels? How much more those (matters) which are of this world?
4 But if you have matters to be judged regarding the world, those who are little-esteemed in the church make you to sit in judgment.
5 But to your reproach am I to say to you, So there is not among you even one wise man, who is able to adjust between a brother and his brother?
6 But a brother with his brother litigates, and, moreover, before those who are unbelievers!
7 Now, therefore, you make yourselves guilty while you have litigation one with another. For why do you not bear injury? and why do you not suffer fraud?
8 But you injure, and you defraud, also your brethren!
9 Or, know you not that the unjust the kingdom of Aloha cannot inherit? Do not err; neither fornicators, nor the servers of idols, nor adulterers, nor corrupters, nor liers with men, nor the oppressive,
10 nor thieves, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor the rapacious, the kingdom of Aloha can inherit.
11 And these were some of you but you are washed, and sanctified, and justified in the name of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha, and by the Spirit of our God.
12 ALL (food) is lawful to me, but all is not expedient for me. All is lawful to me, but over me no one shall have power.
13 Food is for the belly, and the belly for food; but Aloha will abolish them both. But the body was not for fornication, but for our Lord, and our Lord for the body.
14 And Aloha hath raised up our Lord, and us will raise by his power.
15 Know you not that your bodies are members of the Meshiha? Shall one take a member of the Meshiha to make it a member of a harlot? Never!
16 Know you not that whosoever attacheth to a harlot is one body? For it is said, The two shall be one body.
17 But, he who attacheth to our Lord is with him one spirit.
18 Flee from fornication: for every sin which a man committeth is without his body; but he who committeth fornication against his own body sinneth.
19 Or, know you not that your body is the temple of the Spirit of Holiness, who dwelleth in you, (even) Him whom you have received from Aloha? And you are not your own,
20 for you are bought with the price; therefore glorify Aloha in your body and in your spirit, which are of Aloha.
