1 Corinthians 10
The sacraments of the Jews,
1 Corinthians 10:1 For I wish not ye should be ignorant, brethren, that, all our fathers, were, under the cloud, and, all, passed through the sea, 1 Corinthians 10:2 And, all, immersed themselves into Moses, in the cloud, and in the sea; 1 Corinthians 10:3 And, all, did eat [the same] spiritual food, 1 Corinthians 10:4 And, all, drank, the same spiritual drink,for they continued to drink of the spiritual rock that followed them, and, the rock, was the Christ: 1 Corinthians 10:5 Nevertheless, with the most of them, God, was not well-pleased, for they were strewed along in the desert.
are types of ours,
1 Corinthians 10:6 But, in these things, they became, ensamples for us, to the end we should not be covetous of evil things, even as, they, also coveted;
and their punishments,
1 Corinthians 10:7 Neither become ye, idolaters, as some of them,as it is writtenThe people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to be making sport; 1 Corinthians 10:8 Neither let us commit fornication, as, some of them, committed fornication, and there fell, in one day, three and twenty thousand; 1 Corinthians 10:9 Neither let us be putting the Lord to the test, as, some of them, put him to the test, and, by the serpents, were perishing; 1 Corinthians 10:10 Neither be ye murmuring, even, as some of them, murmured, and perished by the destroyer.
examples for us.
1 Corinthians 10:11 But, these things, by way of type, were happening unto them, and were written with a view to our admonition, unto whom, the ends of the ages, have reached along. 1 Corinthians 10:12 So that, he that thinketh he is standing, let him take heed lest he fall. 1 Corinthians 10:13 Trial, hath not taken you, save such as man can bear; faithful, moreover is God, who will not suffer you to be tried above what ye are able, but will make, with the trial, also the way of escape, that ye may be able to hold out.
We must flee from idolatry.
1 Corinthians 10:14 Wherefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry, 1 Corinthians 10:15 As, to prudent men, I speak,judge, ye, what I say: 1 Corinthians 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not, a sharing together of the blood of the Christ? The loaf which we break, is it not, a sharing together of the body of the Christ? 1 Corinthians 10:17 Because, one loaf, one body, we, the many, are, for we, all, of the one loaf, partake. 1 Corinthians 10:18 Be looking at Israel after the flesh:are not, they who eat the sacrifices, joint partakers with the altar? 1 Corinthians 10:19 What, then, am I saying?that, an idol-sacrifice, is anything? or that, an idol, is anything? 1 Corinthians 10:20 On the contrarythat, the things which the nations sacrifice, unto demons, and not unto God, they sacrifice; and I wish not that ye should become, sharers together with the demons!
We must not make the Lord's table the table of devils:
1 Corinthians 10:21 Ye cannot be drinkinga cup of the Lord, and a cup of demons; ye cannot be partaking of, a table of the Lord, and a table of demons. 1 Corinthians 10:22 Or are we to provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we mightier than he? 1 Corinthians 10:23 All things are allowablebut, not all things, are profitable,all things are allowablebut, not all things, upbuild.
and in things indifferent we must have regards of our brethren.
1 Corinthians 10:24 Let, no one, be seeking, what concerneth himself, but that which concerneth some one else. 1 Corinthians 10:25 Whatsoever, in the market, is sold, eat,asking no question, for conscience sake; 1 Corinthians 10:26 For, unto the Lord, belongeth the earth, and the fullness thereof. 1 Corinthians 10:27 If one of them who believe not invite you, and ye are disposed to go, whatsoever is set before you, eat,asking no question, for conscience sake. 1 Corinthians 10:28 But, if anyone should say unto you,This, is, a holy sacrifice, do not eat, for that man's sake who disclosed it, and for conscience sake: 1 Corinthians 10:29 But, conscience, I mean, not thine own, but the other's,for why is my freedom to be judged by another's conscience? 1 Corinthians 10:30 If, I, with gratitude, partake, why am I to be defamed, as to that for which, I, give thanks? 1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether, therefore, ye eat or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do, all things to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:32 Give no occasion of stumblingwhether to Jews, or to Greeks, or to the assembly of God: 1 Corinthians 10:33 Even as, I also, in all things do please all, not seeking my own profit, but that of the many, that they may be saved.
