1: For I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 2: and all were baptised unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 3: and all ate the same spiritual food, 4: and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they drank of a spiritual rock which followed [them]: (now the rock was the Christ;) 5: yet God was not pleased with the most of them, for they were strewed in the desert. 6: But these things happened [as] types of us, that we should not be lusters after evil things, as they also lusted. 7: Neither be ye idolaters, as some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play. 8: Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed fornication, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. 9: Neither let us tempt the Christ, as some of them tempted, and perished by serpents. 10: Neither murmur ye, as some of them murmured, and perished by the destroyer. 11: Now all these things happened to them [as] types, and have been written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages are come. 12: So that let him that thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. 13: No temptation has taken you but such as is according to man's nature; and God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above what ye are able [to bear], but will with the temptation make the issue also, so that [ye] should be able to bear [it]. 14: Wherefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. 15: I speak as to intelligent [persons]: do ye judge what I say. 16: The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not [the] communion of the blood of the Christ? The bread which we break, is it not [the] communion of the body of the Christ? 17: Because we, [being] many, are one loaf, one body; for we all partake of that one loaf. 18: See Israel according to flesh: are not they who eat the sacrifices in communion with the altar? 19: What then do I say? that what is sacrificed to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? 20: But that what [the nations] sacrifice they sacrifice to demons, and not to God. Now I do not wish you to be in communion with demons. 21: Ye cannot drink [the] Lord's cup, and [the] cup of demons: ye cannot partake of [the] Lord's table, and of [the] table of demons. 22: Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he? 23: All things are lawful, but all are not profitable; all things are lawful, but all do not edify. 24: Let no one seek his own [advantage], but that of the other. 25: Everything sold in the shambles eat, making no inquiry for conscience sake. 26: For the earth [is] the Lord's and its fulness. 27: But if any one of the unbelievers invite you, and ye are minded to go, all that is set before you eat, making no inquiry for conscience sake. 28: But if any one say to you, This is offered to holy purposes, do not eat, for his sake that pointed it out, and conscience sake; 29: but conscience, I mean, not thine own, but that of the other: for why is my liberty judged by another conscience? 30: If I partake with thanksgiving, why am I spoken evil of for what I give thanks for? 31: Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatever ye do, do all things to God's glory. 32: Give no occasion to stumbling, whether to Jews, or Greeks, or the assembly of God. 33: Even as I also please all in all things; not seeking my own profit, but that of the many, that they may be saved.
