But you yourselves wrong and cheat, and you do this to your brothers and sisters! 1
and constant bickering by people corrupted in their minds and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness 1 is a way of making a profit.
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?
You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.’” 1
Do not deprive each other, except by mutual agreement for a specified time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. 1 Then resume your relationship, 2 so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
Look, the pay you have held back from the workers who mowed your fields cries out against you, and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts.
