New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 I don't want you to forget, dear brothers and sisters, what happened to our ancestors in the wilderness long ago. God guided all of them by sending a cloud that moved along ahead of them, and he brought them all safely through the waters of the sea on dry ground. 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 As followers of Moses, they were all baptized in the cloud and the sea. 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea.
3 And all of them ate the same miraculous food, 3 They all ate the same spiritual food
4 and all of them drank the same miraculous water. For they all drank from the miraculous rock that traveled with them, and that rock 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 Yet after all this, God was not pleased with most of them, and he destroyed them in the wilderness. 5 Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered over the desert.
6 These events happened as a warning to us, so that we would not crave evil things as they did 6 Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did.
7 or worship idols as some of them did. For the Scriptures say, "The people celebrated with feasting and drinking, and they indulged themselves in pagan revelry." 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 And we must not engage in sexual immorality as some of them did, causing 23,000 of them to die 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 Nor should we put Christ to the test, as some of them did and then died from snakebites. 9 We should not test the Lord, as some of them did--and were killed by snakes.
10 And don't grumble as some of them did, for that is why God sent his angel of death to destroy them. 10 And do not grumble, as some of them did--and were killed by the destroying angel.
11 All these events happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us, who live at the time when this age is drawing to a close. 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 If you think you are standing strong, be careful, for you, too, may fall into the same sin. 12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!
13 But remember that the temptations that come into your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can't stand up against it. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you will not give in to it. 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 So, my dear friends, flee from the worship of idols. 14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry.
