This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 6:1. Τολμᾷ, dare) Treason against Christians is denoted, by this high-sounding word.-τὶς, any one) even one single person.-κρίνεσθαι) in the middle voice, that is κρίμα ἔχειν, obtain a judgment, go to law, v. 7.-ἀδίκων, before the unjust) Every unbeliever is unjust; generally so, even as a citizen.-ἐτὶ τῶν ἀγίων, before the saints) Christians. The great privilege of believers was to settle even civil matters among themselves, and the magistrate ought not to interfere at all with private affairs, unless in the case of those who especially apply to him. The heathen magistrates were very indulgent to the Jews; and in this department no difference was hitherto made between the Jews and the Christians.
