    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:6

    Sino que el hermano con el hermano pleitea en juicio; y esto delante de los infieles.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 6:6

    Verse 6.
    Brother goeth to law with brother] One Christian sues another at law! This is almost as great a scandal as can exist in a Christian society.

    Those in a religious community who will not submit to a proper arbitration, made by persons among themselves, should be expelled from the Church of God.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. But brother goeth to law with brother , etc.] The relation meant is spiritual; it was usual for members of churches to be called brethren, they professing to be born again of the same Father, and belonging to the same family under Christ, the son, firstborn, and master of it: and a very wicked and shameful thing it was, that persons in such a relation, being of such a family, should go to law with one another at all: and that before the unbelievers ; which is an aggravation of their sin and folly. The apostle before calls them unjust, now infidels, such as had no faith in Christ, disbelieved the Messiah, and denied the whole Gospel, and therefore no faith or confidence should be put in them; for, generally speaking, such as have no faith, are not only wicked, but unreasonable men, men of no reason, conscience, justice, and equity; and therefore very improper persons for believers to bring their causes before.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-8 -
    Christians should not contend with one another, for they are brethren This, if duly attended to, would prevent many law-suits, and end man quarrels and disputes. In matters of great damage to ourselves of families, we may use lawful means to right ourselves, but Christian should be of a forgiving temper. Refer the matters in dispute, rathe than go to law about them. They are trifles, and may easily be settled if you first conquer your own spirits. Bear and forbear, and the men of least skill among you may end your quarrels. It is a shame that littl quarrels should grow to such a head among Christians, that they cannot be determined by the brethren. The peace of a man's own mind, and the calm of his neighbourhood, are worth more than victory. Lawsuits coul not take place among brethren, unless there were faults among them.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    6. Goeth to
    law (krinetai). As in ver. 1, and Matt. v. 40. Instead of accepting arbitration.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:6 {And that before
    unbelievers} (kai touto epi apistwn). Climactic force of kai. The accusative of general reference with touto. "That there should be disputes about biwtika is bad; that Christian should go to law with Christian is worse; that Christians should do this before unbelievers is worst of all" (Robertson and Plummer).
