Him that is weak in the faith receive ye , butnotatodoubtfuldisputations.2Foronebelieveth that he may eat all things:another, who is weak , eatethherbs.3Letnot him that eatethdespise him that eatethnot;andletnot him which eatethnotjudge him that eateth : forGod hath receivedhim.4Whoartthou that judgest another man'sservant? to his ownmaster he standethorfalleth . Yea, he shall be holden up : forGodisable to makehimstand .
5Onemanesteemeth one dayaboveanother : anotheresteemetheveryday alike. Let every man be fully persuadedbin his ownmind.6
He that regardethc the day,regardeth it unto the Lord;and he that regardethnot the day, to the Lord he dothnotregard it. He that eateth , eateth to the Lord,for he giveth Godthanks ; and he that eatethnot, to the Lord he eatethnot,and giveth Godthanks .
7Fornone of usliveth to himself,and no mandieth to himself.8Forwhetherwelive , we live unto the Lord; and whetherwedie , we die unto the Lord:whetherwelivetherefore,ordie , we are the Lord's.9Fortothis end Christbothdied , androse , andrevived , that he might be Lordboth of the deadandliving .
10Butwhydostthoujudgethybrother?orwhydostthou set at noughtthybrother?for we shallall stand before the judgment seat of Christ.11For it is written , As Ilive , saith the Lord , everyknee shall bow to me,andeverytongue shall confess to God.12Sothen every one of us shall giveaccountofhimself to God.13
Let us not thereforejudge one another any more:butjudgethisrather, that no manput a stumblingblockor an occasion to fall in his brother's way.14
I know , and am persuadedby the LordJesus,that there is nothinguncleandofitself:but to him that esteemeth any thing to beunclean, to him it is unclean.15Butifthybrother be grievedwith thy meat,now walkest thounotcharitably .eDestroynothim with thymeat,forwhomChristdied .
16Letnotthenyourgood be evil spoken of :
17For the kingdom of Godisnotmeatanddrink;butrighteousness,andpeace,andjoyin the HolyGhost.18For he that in these thingsservethChrist is acceptable to God,andapproved of men.19
Let usthereforefollowafter the things which make forpeace,and things wherewithone may edifyanother.20Formeatdestroynot the work of God. All thingsindeed are pure;but it is evil for that man who eatethwithoffence.21
It is goodneither to eatflesh,nor to drinkwine,nor any thing wherebythybrotherstumbleth , or is offended , or is made weak .
22Hastthoufaith?have it tothyselfbeforeGod.Happy is he that condemnethnothimselfin that thing which he alloweth .
23And he that doubtethf is damnedif he eat , because he eateth notoffaith:forwhatsoeverisnotoffaithissin.
