1 Corinthians 8

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
1COR 8:1 And concerning the things sacrificed to idols, we have known that we all have knowledge: knowledge puffeth up, but love buildeth up;

1COR 8:2 and if any one doth think to know anything, he hath not yet known anything according as it behoveth `him' to know;

1COR 8:3 and if any one doth love God, this one hath been known by Him.

1COR 8:4 Concerning the eating then of the things sacrificed to idols, we have known that an idol `is' nothing in the world, and that there is no other God except one;

1COR 8:5 for even if there are those called gods, whether in heaven, whether upon earth -- as there are gods many and lords many --

1COR 8:6 yet to us `is' one God, the Father, of whom `are' the all things, and we to Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom `are' the all things, and we through Him;

1COR 8:7 but not in all men `is' the knowledge, and certain with conscience of the idol, till now, as a thing sacrificed to an idol do eat `it', and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.

1COR 8:8 But victuals do not commend us to God, for neither if we may eat are we in advance; nor if we may not eat, are we behind;

1COR 8:9 but see, lest this privilege of yours may become a stumbling-block to the infirm,

1COR 8:10 for if any one may see thee that hast knowledge in an idol's temple reclining at meat -- shall not his conscience -- he being infirm -- be emboldened to eat the things sacrificed to idols,

1COR 8:11 and the brother who is infirm shall perish by thy knowledge, because of whom Christ died?

1COR 8:12 and thus sinning in regard to the brethren, and smiting their weak conscience -- in regard to Christ ye sin;

1COR 8:13 wherefore, if victuals cause my brother to stumble, I may eat no flesh -- to the age -- that my brother I may not cause to stumble.
