Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Accept anyone who is weak in faith, but don't argue about doubtful issues. 1 Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters.
2 One person believes he may eat anything, but one who is weak eats only vegetables. 2 One man's faith allows him to eat everything, but another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables.
3 One who eats must not look down on one who does not eat; and one who does not eat must not criticize one who does, because God has accepted 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 Who are you to criticize another's household slave? Before his own Lord he stands or falls. And stand he will! For the Lord 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 person considers one day to be above another day. Someone else considers every day to be the same. Each one must be fully convinced in his own mind. 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 Whoever observes the day, observes it to the Lord. Whoever eats, eats to the Lord, since he gives thanks to God; and whoever does not eat, it is to the Lord that he does not eat, yet he thanks 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.
