Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1Dare any of you, when he has a dispute with his brother, to judge before the evil and not before the holy? 2Or do you not know that the Saints shall judge the universe? And if the universe is judged by you, are you not worthy to judge small disputes? 3Do you not know that we judge the Angels? How much rather those who are of this world? 4But if you have a judgment concerning a worldly matter, seat those for you in judgment who are neglected in the assembly. 5But I say to you now: Is there not with you even one wise person who will be able to reconcile between a brother and his brother? 6A brother disputes with his brother, even before those who are unbelievers.
7Now therefore you have condemned yourselves, because you have lawsuits with one another; for why are you not rather wronged, and why are you not rather cheated? 8But you are doing wrong and you are cheating even your brothers.
9Or do you not know that evil men do not inherit The Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; no fornicators, neither worshipers of idols, neither adulterers, neither sexual molesters, neither males lying down with males, 10Neither frauds, nor thieves, neither drunkards, nor the insolent, neither extortioners; these do not inherit The Kingdom of God. 11And these things had been in each one of you but you are washed, you are sanctified and you are made righteous in the name of Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah and by The Spirit of our God.
12Everything is legal for me, but not everything is useful for me. Everything is legal for me, but no man will have dominion over me. 13Food for the belly and the belly for food, but God brings both of them to nothing; but the body is not for fornication but for Our Lord, and Our Lord for the body. 14But God has raised even Our Lord and raises us by his power. 15Do you not know that your bodies are members of The Messiah? Shall we take the member of The Messiah to make it the member of a harlot? God forbid! 16Do you not know that whoever cleaves to a harlot is one body, for it is said, "They will both be one body." 17But whoever cleaves to Our Lord becomes one spirit with him.
18Flee from fornication. Every sin that a man will do is apart from his body, but whoever fornicates sins with his body. 19Do you not know that your body is the temple of The Spirit of Holiness who dwells within you, whom you have received from God, and you are not your own? 20For you have been bought with a price; therefore be glorifying God with your body and with your spirit, which are God's.
