1 Corinthians 10

NCV 1 Brothers and sisters, I want you to know what happened to our ancestors who followed Moses. They were all under the cloud and all went through the sea. NIV 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. NCV 2 They were all baptized as followers of Moses in the cloud and in the sea. NIV 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. NCV 3 They all ate the same spiritual food, NIV 3 They all ate the same spiritual food NCV 4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. They drank from that spiritual rock that followed them, and that rock was Christ. NIV 4 and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ. NCV 5 But God was not pleased with most of them, so they died in the desert. NIV 5 Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered over the desert. NCV 6 And these things happened as examples for us, to stop us from wanting evil things as those people did. NIV 6 Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. NCV 7 Do not worship idols, as some of them did. Just as it is written in the Scriptures: "They sat down to eat and drink, and then they got up and sinned sexually." NIV 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." NCV 8 We must not take part in sexual sins, as some of them did. In one day twenty-three thousand of them died because of their sins. NIV 8 We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did--and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died. NCV 9 We must not test Christ as some of them did; they were killed by snakes. NIV 9 We should not test the Lord, as some of them did--and were killed by snakes. NCV 10 Do not complain as some of them did; they were killed by the angel that destroys. NIV 10 And do not grumble, as some of them did--and were killed by the destroying angel. NCV 11 The things that happened to those people are examples. They were written down to teach us, because we live in a time when all these things of the past have reached their goal. NIV 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. NCV 12 If you think you are strong, you should be careful not to fall. NIV 12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! NCV 13 The only temptation that has come to you is that which everyone has. But you can trust God, who will not permit you to be tempted more than you can stand. But when you are tempted, he will also give you a way to escape so that you will be able to stand it. NIV 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. NCV 14 So, my dear friends, run away from the worship of idols. NIV 14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. NCV 15 I am speaking to you as to intelligent people; judge for yourselves what I say. NIV 15 I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. NCV 16 We give thanks for the cup of blessing, which is a sharing in the blood of Christ. And the bread that we break is a sharing in the body of Christ. NIV 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? NCV 17 Because there is one loaf of bread, we who are many are one body, because we all share that one loaf. NIV 17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf. NCV 18 Think about the Israelites: Do not those who eat the sacrifices share in the altar? NIV 18 Consider the people of Israel: Do not those who eat the sacrifices participate in the altar? NCV 19 I do not mean that the food sacrificed to an idol is important. I do not mean that an idol is anything at all. NIV 19 Do I mean then that a sacrifice offered to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? NCV 20 But I say that what is sacrificed to idols is offered to demons, not to God. And I do not want you to share anything with demons. NIV 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. NCV 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons also. You cannot share in the Lord's table and the table of demons. NIV 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. NCV 22 Are we trying to make the Lord jealous? We are not stronger than he is, are we? NIV 22 Are we trying to arouse the Lord's jealousy? Are we stronger than he? NCV 23 "We are allowed to do all things," but all things are not good for us to do. "We are allowed to do all things," but not all things help others grow stronger. NIV 23 "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is constructive. NCV 24 Do not look out only for yourselves. Look out for the good of others also. NIV 24 Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others. NCV 25 Eat any meat that is sold in the meat market. Do not ask questions to see if it is meat you think is wrong to eat. NIV 25 Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience, NCV 26 You may eat it, "because the earth belongs to the Lord, and everything in it." NIV 26 for, "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it." NCV 27 Those who are not believers may invite you to eat with them. If you want to go, eat anything that is put before you. Do not ask questions to see if you think it might be wrong to eat. NIV 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. NCV 28 But if anyone says to you, "That food was offered to idols," do not eat it. Do not eat it because of that person who told you and because eating it might be thought to be wrong. NIV 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-- NCV 29 I don't mean you think it is wrong, but the other person might. But why, you ask, should my freedom be judged by someone else's conscience? NIV 29 the other man's conscience, I mean, not yours. For why should my freedom be judged by another's conscience? NCV 30 If I eat the meal with thankfulness, why am I criticized because of something for which I thank God? NIV 30 If I take part in the meal with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of something I thank God for? NCV 31 The answer is, if you eat or drink, or if you do anything, do it all for the glory of God. NIV 31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. NCV 32 Never do anything that might hurt others -- Jews, Greeks, or God's church -- NIV 32 Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God-- NCV 33 just as I, also, try to please everybody in every way. I am not trying to do what is good for me but what is good for most people so they can be saved. NIV 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.
