If then you have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
1 Corinthians 5:12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not you judge them that are within?
Acts 6:2-4 Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples to them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God...
least. The apostle perhaps meant that the meanest persons in the church were competent to decide the causes which they brought before the heathen magistrates.
