|Return to Index||Henry's Commentary|
|1||Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?|
Do ye not know that the saints shall 1judge 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.|
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 1judge between his brethren?
|6||But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.|
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 1suffer 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||aMeats for the belly, and the belly for bmeats: 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.|
What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? 1for 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.|
