Tyndale (TYN) New International Version (NIV)
1 To speake of thinges dedicate vnto ydols we are sure that we all have knowledge. knowledge maketh a man swell: bnt love edifieth. 1 Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that we all possess knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up.
2 If eny man thinke that he knoweth eny thinge he knoweth nothynge yet as he ought to knowe. 2 The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know.
3 But yf eny man love god the same is knowen of him. 3 But the man who loves God is known by God.
4 To speake of meate dedicat vnto ydols we are sure that ther is none ydoll in the worlde and that ther is none other god but one. 4 So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that an idol is nothing at all in the world and that there is no God but one.
5 And though ther be yt are called goddes whether in heven other in erth (as ther be goddes many and lordes many) 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many "gods" and many "lords"),
6 yet vnto vs is there but one god which is the father of whom are all thinges and we in him: and one lorde Iesus Christ by whom are all thinges and we by him. 6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.
7 But every man hath not knowledge. For some suppose that ther is an ydoll vntyll this houre and eate as of a thinge offered vnto ye ydole and so their consciences beynge yet weake are defyled. 7 But not everyone knows this. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat such food they think of it as having been sacrificed to an idol, and since their conscience is weak, it is defiled.
8 Meate maketh vs not acceptable to god. Nether yf we eate are we ye better. Nether yf we eate not are we the worsse. 8 But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do.
9 But take hede that youre libertie cause not ye weake to faule. 9 Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak.
10 For yf some man se ye which hast knowledge sit at meate in the ydoles teple shall not the conscience of hym which is weake be boldened to eate those thinges which are offered vnto ye ydole? 10 For if anyone with a weak conscience sees you who have this knowledge eating in an idol's temple, won't he be emboldened to eat what has been sacrificed to idols?
11 And so thorow thy knowledge shall ye weake brother perisshe for whom christ dyed. 11 So this weak brother, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your knowledge.
12 Whe ye synne so agaynst the brethren and wounde their weake consciences ye synne agaynst Christ. 12 When you sin against your brothers in this way and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ.
13 Wherfore yf meate hurt my brother I will eate no flesshe whill the worlde stondeth because I will not hurte my brother. 13 Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause him to fall.
