Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Brethren, I will not, that ye not know [Soothly, brethren, I will not you to unknow], that all our fathers were under [a] cloud, and all passed the sea; 1 For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers, that our forefathers were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea.
2 and all were baptized in Moses, in the cloud and in the sea; 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea.
3 and all ate the same spiritual meat, 3 They all ate the same spiritual food
4 and all drank the same spiritual drink; and they drank of the spiritual stone following them [forsooth they drank of the spiritual stone following them]; and the stone was Christ. 4 and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.
5 But not in full many of them it was well pleasant to God; for why they were cast down in [the] desert. 5 Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered over the desert.
6 But these things were done in figure of us, that we be not coveters of evil things, as [and] they coveted. 6 Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did.
7 Neither be ye made idolaters, as some of them; as it is written, The people sat to eat and drink, and they rose up to play [and they have risen up to play]. 7 Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: "The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in pagan revelry."
8 Neither do we fornication, as some of them did fornication, and three and twenty thousand were dead in one day [and three and twenty thousand fell, or died, in one day]. 8 We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did--and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died.
9 Neither tempt we Christ, as some of them tempted, and perished of serpents. 9 We should not test the Lord, as some of them did--and were killed by snakes.
10 Neither grumble ye, as some of them grumbled, and they perished of a destroyer. [Neither grutch ye, as some of them grutched, and they perished of the waster, or destroyer.] 10 And do not grumble, as some of them did--and were killed by the destroying angel.
11 And all these things fell to them in figure; but they be written to our amending, into whom the ends of the worlds be come [soothly they be written to our correction, or amending, into whom the ends of the world have come]. 11 These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come.
12 Therefore he that guesseth him(self), that he standeth, see he, that he fall not. [And so he that guesseth him to stand, see, that he fall not.] 12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!
13 Temptation take not you, but man's temptation; for God is true, which shall not suffer you to be tempted above that that ye be able; but he shall make with temptation also purveyance, that ye be able to suffer [that ye may sustain]. 13 No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
14 Wherefore, ye most dear-worthy to me, flee ye from the worshipping of maumets [flee from worshipping of idols]. 14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry.
15 As to prudent men I speak, deem ye yourselves that thing that I say. 15 I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say.
16 Whether the cup of blessing which we bless, is not the communing of Christ's blood? and whether the bread which we break, is not the part taking of the body of the Lord? [The cup of blessing which we bless, whether it is not the communing of Christ's blood? and the bread which we break, whether it is not the dealing, or part taking, of the body of the Lord?] 16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ?
17 For we many be one bread and one body, all we that take part of one bread and of one cup. 17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.
18 See ye Israel after the flesh, whether they that eat sacrifices, be not partners of the altar? 18 Consider the people of Israel: Do not those who eat the sacrifices participate in the altar?
19 What therefore say I, that a thing that is offered to idols is any thing, or that the idol is any thing? 19 Do I mean then that a sacrifice offered to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything?
20 But those things that heathen men offer, they offer to devils, and not to God. But I will not, that ye be made fellows of fiends; 20 No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons.
21 for ye be not able to drink the cup of the Lord [for ye may not drink the cup of the Lord], and the cup of fiends; ye be not able to be partners of the board of the Lord [ye may not be partners of the board of the Lord], and of the board of fiends. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord's table and the table of demons.
22 Whether we have envy to the Lord? whether we be stronger than he? 22 Are we trying to arouse the Lord's jealousy? Are we stronger than he?
23 All things be leaveful to me, but not all things be speedful. All things be leaveful to me, but not all things edify. 23 "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is constructive.
24 No man seek that thing that is his own, but that thing that is of another. 24 Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.
25 All thing that is sold in the butchery, eat ye, asking nothing for conscience. 25 Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience,
26 The earth and the plenty of it, is the Lord's. 26 for, "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it."
27 If any of heathen men call you to supper [Forsooth if any of unfaithful, or heathen men, calleth you to supper], and ye will go, all thing that is set to you, eat ye, asking nothing for conscience. 27 If some unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat whatever is put before you without raising questions of conscience.
28 But if any man saith [If any man soothly say to you], This thing is offered to idols, do not ye eat, for him that showed [this thing], and for conscience; 28 But if anyone says to you, "This has been offered in sacrifice," then do not eat it, both for the sake of the man who told you and for conscience' sake--
29 and I say not, thy conscience, but of another [man's]. But whereto is my freedom deemed of another man's conscience [Soothly whereto is my liberty, or freedom, deemed of another man's conscience]? 29 the other man's conscience, I mean, not yours. For why should my freedom be judged by another's conscience?
30 Therefore if I take part with grace, what am I blasphemed, for that that I do thankings [for that that I do graces, or thankings]? 30 If I take part in the meal with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of something I thank God for?
31 Therefore whether ye eat, or drink, or do any other thing, do ye all things to the glory of God. 31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
32 Be ye without offence to Jews, and to heathen men, and to the church of God; 32 Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God--
33 as [and] I by all things please to all men, not seeking that that is profitable to me [not seeking what is profitable to me], but that that is profitable to many men, that they be made safe. 33 even as I try to please everybody in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.
