1 Corinthians 6:5-8

Context
6:5 I say this to your shame! Is there no one among you wise enough to settle disputes between fellow Christians? 1  6:6 Instead, does a Christian sue a Christian, 2  and do this before unbelievers? 6:7 The fact that you have lawsuits among yourselves demonstrates that you have already been defeated. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? 6:8 But you yourselves wrong and cheat, and you do this to your brothers and sisters! 3 

1 tn Grk “to decide between his brother (and his opponent),” but see the note on the word “Christian” in 5:11.

2 tn Grk “does a brother sue a brother,” but see the note on the word “Christian” in 5:11.

3 tn Grk “brothers.” The Greek term “brother” literally refers to family relationships, but here it is used in a broader sense to connote familial relationships within the family of God (cf. BDAG 18 s.v. ἀδελφός 2.a). See also the note on the phrase “brothers and sisters” in 1:10.
