1 Corinthians 10:16-26 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible
16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because [there is] one bread, [we] who [are] many are one body, for [we] all share from the one bread. 18 Consider Israel according to the flesh: are not the ones who eat the sacrifices sharers in the altar? 19 Therefore, what am I saying? That food sacrificed to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? 20 [No], but that [the things] which they sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to become sharers with demons. 21 You are not able to drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You are not able to share the table of the Lord and the table of demons. 22 Or are we attempting to provoke the Lord to jealousy? We are not stronger than he [is, are we]?a

Freedom in Christ

23 All [things] are permitted, but not all [things] are profitable. All [things] are permitted, but not all [things] build up. 24 Let no one seek {his own good}b but the [good] of the other. 25 Eat everything that is sold in the meat market, {asking no questions}c for the sake of the conscience, 26 for "the earth [is] the Lord's, and its fullness."d
