||New International Version (NIV)
12 All things are lawful to me: but all things are not expedient. All things are lawful to me: but I will not be brought under the power of any.
12 "Everything is permissible for me"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible for me"--but I will not be mastered by anything.
