1 Corinthians 6:1-8

1 How dare one off you hauynge busynes with another, go to lawe before the vnrighteous, and not before the sayntes? 2 Do ye not knowe that the sayntes shal iudge the worlde? Yf the worlde then shalbe iudged off you, are ye not good ynough to iudge small matters? 3 Knowe ye not that we shal iudge the angels? how moch more thinges that pertayne to the teporall life? 4 Therfore yf ye haue iudgmentes of temporall matters, take them that are despysed in the congregacion, and set them to be iudges. 5 This I saye to youre shame. Is there vtterly no wyse man amoge you? What not one at all, that can iudge betwene brother & brother? 6 but one brother goeth to lawe with another, and that before the vnbeleuers? 7 Now therfore is there vtterly a faute amoge you, that ye go to lawe one with another. Why rather suffre ye not wronge? Why suffre ye not youre selues rather to be defrauded? 8 but ye youre selues do wroge and defraude, and that euen the brethre.

Romans 13:1-7

1 Let euery soule submytte himselfe to the auctorite off the hyer powers. For there is no power but of God. 2 The powers that be, are ordeyned of God: so that who so euer resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinaunce of God. And they that resiste, shal receaue to them selues danacion. 3 For rulers are not to be feared for good workes, but for euell. Yf thou wilt be without feare off the power, do well then, and thou shalt haue prayse of the same: 4 for he is the minister off God for thy wealth. But yff thou do euell, then feare, for he beareth not the swerde for naughte. For he is the mynister of God, a taker of vengeaunce, to punyshe him that doth euell. 5 Wherfore ye must nedes obeye, not onely for punyshmet, but also because of conscience. 6 For this cause must ye geue trybute also. For they are Gods mynisters, which mateyne ye same defence. 7 Geue to euery man therfore his dutye: tribute, to whom tribute belongeth: custome, to whom custome is due: feare, to whom feare belongeth: honoure, to whom honoure pertayneth.
