Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And him who is weak in the faith receive ye -- not to determinations of reasonings; 1 Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters.
2 one doth believe that he may eat all things -- and he who is weak doth eat herbs; 2 One man's faith allows him to eat everything, but another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables.
3 let not him who is eating despise him who is not eating: and let not him who is not eating judge him who is eating, for God did receive him. 3 The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not, and the man who does not eat everything must not condemn the man who does, for God has accepted him.
4 Thou -- who art thou that art judging another's domestic? to his own master he doth stand or fall; and he shall be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand. 4 Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.
5 One doth judge one day above another, and another doth judge every day [alike]; let each in his own mind be fully assured. 5 One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.
6 He who is regarding the day, to the Lord he doth regard [it], and he who is not regarding the day, to the Lord he doth not regard [it]. He who is eating, to the Lord he doth eat, for he doth give thanks to God; and he who is not eating, to the Lord he doth not eat, and doth give thanks to God. 6 He who regards one day as special, does so to the Lord. He who eats meat, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who abstains, does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God.
7 For none of us to himself doth live, and none to himself doth die; 7 For none of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone.
8 for both, if we may live, to the Lord we live; if also we may die, to the Lord we die; both then if we may live, also if we may die, we are the Lord's; 8 If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
9 for because of this Christ both died and rose again, and lived again, that both of dead and of living he may be Lord. 9 For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.
10 And thou, why dost thou judge thy brother? or again, thou, why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand at the tribunal of the Christ; 10 You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before God's judgment seat.
11 for it hath been written, `I live! saith the Lord -- to Me bow shall every knee, and every tongue shall confess to God;' 11 It is written: " 'As surely as I live,' says the Lord, 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.' "
12 so, then, each of us concerning himself shall give reckoning to God; 12 So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.
13 no longer, therefore, may we judge one another, but this judge ye rather, not to put a stumbling-stone before the brother, or an offence. 13 Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother's way.
14 I have known, and am persuaded, in the Lord Jesus, that nothing [is] unclean of itself, except to him who is reckoning anything to be unclean -- to that one [it is] unclean; 14 As one who is in the Lord Jesus, I am fully convinced that no food is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for him it is unclean.
15 and if through victuals thy brother is grieved, no more dost thou walk according to love; do not with thy victuals destroy that one for whom Christ died. 15 If your brother is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy your brother for whom Christ died.
16 Let not, then, your good be evil spoken of, 16 Do not allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil.
17 for the reign of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit; 17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit,
18 for he who in these things is serving the Christ, [is] acceptable to God and approved of men. 18 because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.
19 So, then, the things of peace may we pursue, and the things of building up one another; 19 Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.
20 for the sake of victuals cast not down the work of God; all things, indeed, [are] pure, but evil [is] to the man who is eating through stumbling. 20 Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a man to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble.
21 Right [it is] not to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor to [do anything] in which thy brother doth stumble, or is made to fall, or is weak. 21 It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother to fall.
22 Thou hast faith! to thyself have [it] before God; happy is he who is not judging himself in what he doth approve, 22 So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves.
23 and he who is making a difference, if he may eat, hath been condemned, because [it is] not of faith; and all that [is] not of faith is sin. 23 But the man who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.
