Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be
ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the
cloud, and all passed through the sea;
10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud
and in the sea;
10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for
they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed
them: and that Rock was Christ.
10:5 But with many of them God was not well pleased:
for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
10:6 Now these things were our examples, to the
intent we should not lust after evil things, as they
10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them;
as it is written, The people sat down to eat and
drink, and rose up to play.
10:8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of
them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty
10:9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them
also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
10:10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also
murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for
ensamples: and they are written for our admonition,
upon whom the ends of the world are come.
10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth
take heed lest he fall.
10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as
is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not
suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but
will with the temptation also make a way to escape,
that ye may be able to bear it.
10:14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from
10:15 I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.
10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not
the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread
which we break, is it not the communion of the body
10:17 For we being many are one bread, and one body:
for we are all partakers of that one bread.
10:18 Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they
which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?
10:19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing,
or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is
10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles
sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God:
and I would not that ye should have fellowship with
10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the
cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's
table, and of the table of devils.
10:22 Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we
stronger than he?
10:23 All things are lawful for me, but all things
are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but
all things edify not.
10:24 Let no man seek his own, but every man
10:25 Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat,
asking no question for conscience sake:
10:26 For the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness
10:27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a
feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set
before you, eat, asking no question for conscience
10:28 But if any man say unto you, This is offered
in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that
shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is
the Lord's, and the fulness thereof:
10:29 Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the
other: for why is my liberty judged of another man's
10:30 For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil
spoken of for that for which I give thanks?
10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or
whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
10:32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to
the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:
10:33 Even as I please all men in all things, not
seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many,
that they may be saved.
