14Therefore, my 1beloved, flee from 2idolatry.
I speak as to wisemen ; you judgewhat I say.
Is not the 3cup of blessingwhich we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ ? Is not the a4breadwhich we break a sharing in the body of Christ ?
17Since there is onebbread, we 5who are many are onebody ; for we allpartake of the onecbread.
18Look at dthe nation6Israel ; are not those who 7eat the sacrificessharers in the altar ?
19What do I meanthen ? That a thingsacrificed to idols is anything, or8that an idol is anything ?
No, but I say that the things which the Gentilessacrifice, they 9sacrifice to demons and not to God ; and I do not want you to becomesharers in demons.
2110You cannotdrink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons ; you cannotpartake of the table of the Lord and 11the table of demons.
22Or do we 12provoke the Lord to jealousy ? We are not 13stronger than He, are we?
2314Allthings are lawful, but not allthings are profitable. Allthings are lawful, but not allthings15edify.
Let noone16seek his own good, but that of his eneighbor.
