Against going to law with brethren. I. CORINTHIANS

with old leaven, neither iwith the leaven of
malice and wickedness ; but with the un-
leavened bread of sincerity and truth.
^ 9 1 wrote unto you in an epistle, " not to
company with fornicators :

10 » Yet not altogether with the fornica-
tors ' of this world, or with the covetous, or
extortioners, or with idolaters : for then must
ye needs go " out of the world.

11 But now I have written unto you not
to keep company, ^if any man that is called
a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an
idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an ex-
tortioner : with such an one y no not to eat.

12 For what have I to do to judge '■ them
also that are without? do not ye judge *them
that are within ?

13 But them that are without God judg-
eth. Therefore ''putaway from amongyour-

\ selves that wicked person.

CHAP. VI.

1 The Corinthians must not vex their brethren, in going
to law with them : 6 especially under infidels. 9 The
unrighteovs shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
15 Our bodies are the members of Christ, 19 and tem-
ples of the Holy Ghost. 16, 17 They must not there-
fore be defiled.

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 an-
gels ? 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 te 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 drunk-
ards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall in-
herit the kingdom of God.



Our bodies are members of Christ.

11 And such were s some of you : ""but y^
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 bothraised up the Lord,
and will also raise up us ° by his own power.

15 Know ye not, that p your bodies are the
members of Christ? shall I then take the
members of Christ, and make them the mem-
bers of an harlot? God forbid.

16 What! know ye not that he wliich is
joined to an harlot is one body? for itwo,
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 yye are bought with a price : there-
fore glorify God in your body, and in youi
spirit, which are God's.



CHAP. VIL

2 He treateth of marriage, 4 shewing it to be a remedy
against fornication : 10 and that the bond thereof
ought not lightly to be dissolved. 18, 20 Every man
w.ust be content xoith his vocation. 25 Virginity where-
fore to be embraced. 35 And for what respects we
■may either inarry, or abstain from marrying.

NOW concerning the things whereof ye
wrote unto me : ^It is good for a man
not to touch a woman.

2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let
every man have his own wife, and let every
woman have her own husband.

3 ^ Let the husband render unto the wife
due benevolence : and likewise also the wife
unto the husband.

4 The wife hath not power of her own
body, but the husband: and likewise also the
husband hath not power of his own bod)^,
but the wife.

5 "Defraud ye not one the other, except it
be with consent for a time, that ye may give
yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come
together again, that * Satan tempt you not
for your incontinency.

Duties of the married state.

6 But I speak this by permission, " and
not of commandment.

7 For ""I would that all men were eeven
as I myself. But ''every man hath his pro-
per gift of God, one after this manner, and
another after that.

8 I say therefore to the unmarried and
widows, ' It is good for them if they abide
even "as I.

9 But ''if they cannot contain, let them
marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.

' . 10 And unto the married I command, ' yet
not I, but the Lord, ""Let not the wife de-
part from her husband :

11 But and if she depart, let her remain
unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband :
and let not the husband put away his wife.

12 But to the rest speak I, "not the Lord,
If any brother hath a wife that believeth not,
and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him
not put her away.

13 And the woman which hath an hus-
band that believeth not, and if he be pleased
to dwell with her, let her not leave him.

14 For the unbelieving husband is sancti-
fied by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is
sanctified by the husband : else "were your
children unclean ; but now are they holy.

15 But if the unbeheving depart, let him
depart. A brother or a sister is not under
bondage in such cases ; but God hath called
us pfto peace.

16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whe-
ther thou shalt isave thy husband? or fhow
knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt
save thy wife ?

17 But as God hath distributed to every
man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let
him walk. And ""so ordain I in all churches.

18 Is any man called being circumcised?
let him not become uncircumcised. Is any
called in uncircumcision ? ' let him not be
circumcised.

19 "Circumcision is nothing, and uncir-
cumcision is nothing, but ^ the keeping of the
commandments of God.

20 Let every man abide in the same call-
ing wherein he was called.

21 Art thou called being a servant ? care
not for it ; but if thou mayest be made free,
use it rather.

22 For he that is called in the Lord, being
a servant, is y the Lord's t freeman : likewise
also he that is called, being free, is ^ Christ's
servant.

23 * Ye are bought with a price ; be not
ye the servants of men.

24 Brethren, ""let every man, wherein he
is called, therein abide with God.

25 Now concerning virgins, <= I have no

Virginity wherefore to be embraced.

commandment of the Lord : yet I give my
judgment as one "^that hath obtained mercy
of the Lord "to be faithful.

26 I suppose therefore that this is good for
the present || distress ; I say, ^ that it is good
for a man so to be.

27 Art thou bound unto a wife ? seek not
to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife?
seek not a wife.

28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not
sinned : and if a virgin marry she hath not
sinned. Nevertheless, such shall have trou-
ble in the flesh ; but I spare you.

29 But ethis I say, brethren, The time is
short. It remaineth, that both they that have
wives, be as though they had none ;

30 And they that weep, as though they
wept not ; and they that rejoice, as though
they rejoiced not ; and they that buy, as
though they possessed not ;

31 And they that use this world, as not
*• abusing it. For ' the fashion of this world
passeth away.

32 But I would have you without careful-
ness. ^ He that is unmarried, careth for the
things fthat belong to the Lord, how he may
please the Lord :

33 But he that is married, careth for the
things that are of the world, how he may
please his wife.

34 There is difference also between a wife
and a virgin. The unmarried woman 'careth
for the things of the Lord, that she may be
holy, both in body and in spirit : but she that
is married, careth for the things of the world,
how she may please her husband.

35 And this I speak for your own profit ;
not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for
that which is com'ely, and that ye may attend
upon the Lord without distraction.

36 But if any man think that he behaveth
himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she
pass the flower of her age, and need so re-
quire, let him do what he will, he sinneth
not : let them marry.

37 Nevertheless, he that standeth steadfast
in his heart, having no necessity, but hath
power over his own will, and hath so decreed
in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth
well.

38 "> So then he that giveth her in mar-
riage doeth well ; but he that giveth her not
in marriage doeth better.

39 "The wife is bound by the law as long
as her husband liveth ; but if her husband JDe
dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom
she will ; "only in the Lord.

40 But she is happier if she so abide,
p after my judgment: and il think also that
I have the Spirit of God.

Of eating meats offered to idols.
CHAP. VIII.

I To abstain from meats offeredio idols. 8,9 We must not
abuse our Christian liberty, to the offence of our bre-
thren : 1 1 but must bridle our knowledge with charity.

""^TOW "as touching things offered unto
\ idols we know that we all have '' know-
ledge. * Knowledge puffeth up, but charity
edifieth.

2 And "^if any man think that he knoweth
any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he
ought to know.

3 But if any man love God, « the same is
known of him.

4 As concerning therefore the eating of
those things that are offered in sacrifice unto
idols, we know that ^an idol is nothing in the
world, e and that there is none other God but
one.

5 For though there be that are '' called
gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there
be gods many, and lords many ;)

6 But 'to us there is but one God, the
Father, ■'of whom are all things, and we || in
him; and 'one Lord Jesus Christ, "by whom
are all things, and we by him.

7 Howbeit, there is not in every mai; that
knowledge : for some " with conscience of the
idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered
unto an idol: and their conscience, being
weak, is "defiled.

8 But Pmea<;;^mmendeth us not to God :
for neither if we eat || are we the better ;
neither if we eat not, || are we the worse.

9 But itake heed lest by any means this

II liberty of yours become ■■ a stumbling-block
to them that are weak.

10 For if any man see thee, which hast
knowledge, sit at meat in the idol's temple,
shall not 'the conscience of him which is weak
be t emboldened to eat those things which are
offered to idols ;

11 And "through thy^knowledge. shall the
weak brother perish, for whom Christ died ?

12 But ^when ye sin so against the bre-
thren, and wound their weak conscience, ye
sin against Christ.

13 Wherefore, ^if meat make my brother
to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world
standeth, lest I make my brother to offend,

CHAP. IX.

1 He sheweth Ms liberty, 7 and that the minister ought
to live by the gospel : 15 yet that himself hath of his
own accord abstained, 18 to be either chargeable unto
them, 22 or offensive unto any, in matters indifferent.
24 Our life is like unto a race.

AM "I not an apostle ? am I not free ?
^ have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord ?
"are not ye my work in the Lord?

2 If I be not an apostle unto others, yet
doubtless I am to you : for "^ the seal of mine
apostleship are ye in the Lord.



I. CORINTHIANS. Ministers ought to live by the gospel.

3 Mine answer to them that do examine
me is this ;

4 "Have we not power to eat and to drink?

5 Have we not power to lead about a sister,
a II wife, as well as other apostles, and as ^the
brethren of the Lord, and s Cephas?

6 Or I only and Barnabas, ''have not we
power to forbear working?

7 Who ' goeth a warfare any time at his
own charges? who ''planteth a vineyard, and
eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who 'feed-
eth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the
flock ?

8 Say I these things as a man? or saith
not the law the same also ?

9 For it is written in the law of Moses,
■" Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox
that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take
care for oxen ?

10 Or saith he it altogether for our sakes ?
For our sakes, no doubt, this is written : that
" he that plougheth shoald plough in hope ;
and that he that thresheth in hope should be
partaker of his hope.

11 ° If we have sown unto you spiritual
things, is it a great thing if we shall reap
your carnal things ?

12 If others be partakers of this power
over you, are not we rather? p Nevertheless
we have not used this power : but suffer all
things, ilest we should hinder the gospel of
Christ.

13 "^ Do ye not know that they which mi-
nister about holy things || live of the things
of the temple, and they which wait at the
altar are partakers Avith the altar?

14 Even so ^ hath the Lord ordained ' that
they which preach the gospel should live of
the gospel. -

15 But " I have used none of these things :
neither have I written these things, that it
should be so done unto me : for ^ it were
better for me to die, than that any man should
make my glorying void.

16 For though I preach the gospel, I have
nothing to glory of: for y necessity is laid
upon me ; yea, wo is unto me, if I preach
not the gospel !

17 For if I do this thing willingly, "^ I have
a reward: but if against my will, *a dispen-
sation of the gospel is committed unto me.

18 What is my reward then ? Verily that,
''when I preach the gospel, I may make the
gospel of Christ without charge, that I "abuse
not my power in the gospel.

19 For though \he^ free from all men,
yet have " I made myself servant unto all,
''that I might gain the more.

20 And « unto the Jews I became as a
Jew, that I might gain the Jews ; to them

Our life is like unto a race.

that are under the law, as under the law,
that I might gain them that are under the
law;

21 •'To 'them that are without law, as
without law, (''being not without law to God,
but under the law to Christ,) that I might
gain them that are without law.

22 'To the weak became I as weak, that I
might gain the weak : ""I am made Jill things
t,o all men, " that I might by all means save
some.

23 And this I do for the gospel's sake,
thati might be partaker thereof with you.

24 Know ye not, that they which run in
a race, run all, but one receiveth the prize ?
" So run, that ye may obtain.

'25 And every man that Pstriveth for t\e
mastery is temperate in all things. Now they
do it to obtain a corruptible crown ; but we
9 an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, '^not as uncertainly;
so fight I, not as one that beateth the air :

27 =But I keep under my body, and * bring
it into subjection : lest that by any means
when I have preached to others, I myself
should be "a cast-away.

CHAP. X.

I The sacraments of the Jews 6 are types of ours, 7 and
their punishments 11 examples for us. 14 We must
Jly from idolatry. 21 We must not make the Lord's
table the taHle of devils : 24 and in things indifferent
we must have regard of our brethren.

MOREOVER, brethren, I would not
that ye should be ignorant how that
all our fathers were under ''the cloud, and all
passed through '•the sea;

2 And were all baptized unto Moses in
the cloud and in the sea;

3 And did all eat the same '^ spiritual
meat;

4 And did all drink the same "^spiritual
drink : (For they drank of that spiritual Rock
that II followed them : and that Rock was
Christ.)

5 But with many of them God was not
well pleased : for they * were overthrown in
the wilderness.

6 Now these things were f onr examples,
to the intent we should not lust after evil
things, as ^ they also lusted.

7 s Neither be ye idolaters, ?iS were some
of them : as it is written, •' The people sat
down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

8 ' Neither let us commit fornication, as
some of them committed, and ''fell in one day
three and twenty thousand.

9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as 'some
of them also tempted, and ■" were destroyed
of serpents.

We must fly from idolatry.

10 Neither murmur ye, as " some of thera
also murmured, and "were destroyed of p the
destroyer.

11 Now all these things happened unto
them for | ensamples : and "J they are written
for our admonition, "^upon whom the ends of
the world are come.

12 Wherefore Met him that thinketh he
standeth, take heed lest he fall.

13 There hath no temptation taken you
but II such as is common to man : but 'G»d
is faithful, "who will not suffer you to be
tempted above that ye are able ; but will with
the temptation also ^make a way to escape,
that ye may be able to bear it,

14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, yflee
from idolatry.

15 I speak as to wise ^men; judge ye
what I say.

16 '^ The cup of blessing which we bless,
is it not the communion of the blood of
Christ? ''The bread which we break, is it
not the communion of the body of Christ?

17 For =we being many are one bread,
and one body: for we are all partakers of
that one bread.

18 Behold ''Israel * after the flesh: ""are
not they which eat of the sacrifices, partakers
of the altar?

19 What say I then? ethat the idol is
any thing, or that which is offered in sacri-
fice to idols is any thing?

20 But I say, that the things which the
Gentiles '' sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils,
and not to God : and I would not that ye
should have fellowship with devils.

21 'Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord,
and ^ the cup of devils : ye cannot be par-
takers of the Lord's table, and of the table
of devils.

22 Do we 'provoke the Lord to jealousy ?
"• are we stronger than he ?

23 "All things are lawful for me, but
all things are not expedient : all things «
are lawful for me, but all things edify
not.

. 24 ° Let no man seek his own, but every
man another's wealth.

25 p Whatsoever is sold in the shambles,
that eat, asking no question for conscience'
sake :

26 For ^the earth is the Lord's, and the
fulness thereof.
