1 Corinthians 10
               
1COR 10:1 Now I would not have you ignorant, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
1COR 10:2 and were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
1COR 10:3 and all ate the same spiritual food;
1COR 10:4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of a spiritual rock that followed them, and the rock was Christ.
1COR 10:5 However with most of them, God was not well pleased, for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
1COR 10:6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
1COR 10:7 Neither be idolaters, as some of them were. As it is written, "The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play."
1COR 10:8 Neither let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them committed, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell.
1COR 10:9 Neither let us test the Lord, as some of them tested, and perished by the serpents.
1COR 10:10 Neither grumble, as some of them also grumbled, and perished by the destroyer.
1COR 10:11 Now all these things happened to them by way of example, and they were written for our admonition, on whom the ends of the ages have come.
1COR 10:12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands be careful that he doesn't fall.
1COR 10:13 No temptation has taken you except what is common to man. God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the temptation also make the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
1COR 10:14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.
1COR 10:15 I speak as to wise men. Judge what I say.
1COR 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, isn't it a communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, isn't it a communion of the body of Christ?
1COR 10:17 Because we, who are many, are one bread, one body; for we all partake of the one bread.
1COR 10:18 Consider Israel after the flesh. Don't those who eat the sacrifices have communion with the altar?
1COR 10:19 What am I saying then? That a thing sacrificed to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything?
1COR 10:20 But I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons, and not to God, and I don't desire that you would have communion with demons.
1COR 10:21 You can't both drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You can't both partake of the table of the Lord, and of the table of demons.
1COR 10:22 Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?
1COR 10:23 "All things are lawful for me," but not all things are profitable. "All things are lawful for me," but not all things build up.
1COR 10:24 Let no one seek his own, but each one his neighbor's good.
1COR 10:25 Whatever is sold in the butcher shop, eat, asking no question for the sake of conscience,
1COR 10:26 for "the earth is the Lord's, and its fullness."
1COR 10:27 But if one of those who don't believe invites you to a meal, and you are inclined to go, eat whatever is set before you, asking no questions for the sake of conscience.
1COR 10:28 But if anyone says to you, "This was offered to idols," don't eat it for the sake of the one who told you, and for the sake of conscience. For "the earth is the Lord's, and all its fullness."
1COR 10:29 Conscience, I say, not your own, but the other's conscience. For why is my liberty judged by another conscience?
1COR 10:30 If I partake with thankfulness, why am I denounced for that for which I give thanks?
1COR 10:31 Whether therefore you eat, or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1COR 10:32 Give no occasions for stumbling, either to Jews, or to Greeks, or to the assembly of God;
1COR 10:33 even as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of the many, that they may be saved.
