1 Corinthians 10

NIRV 1 Brothers and sisters, here is what I want you to know about our people who lived long ago. They were all led by the cloud. They all walked through the Red 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. NIRV 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. NIV 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. NIRV 3 They all ate the same supernatural food. NIV 3 They all ate the same spiritual food NIRV 4 They all drank the same supernatural water. They drank from the supernatural rock that went with them. 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. NIRV 5 But God was not pleased with most of them. Their bodies were scattered all over the desert. NIV 5 Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered over the desert. NIRV 6 Now those things happened as examples for us. They are supposed to keep us from longing for evil things, as the people of Israel did. NIV 6 Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. NIRV 7 So don't worship statues of gods, as some of them did. It is written, "The people sat down to eat and drink. Then they got up to dance wildly in front of their god."(Exodus 32:6) 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." NIRV 8 We should not commit sexual sins, as some of them did. In one day 23,000 of them died. NIV 8 We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did--and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died. NIRV 9 We should not put the Lord to the test, 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. NIRV 10 Don't tell your leaders how unhappy you are with them. That's what some of the people of Israel did. And they were killed by the destroying angel. NIV 10 And do not grumble, as some of them did--and were killed by the destroying angel. NIRV 11 Those things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who are living at the time when God's work is being completed. 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. NIRV 12 So be careful. When you think you are standing firm, you might fall. NIV 12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! NIRV 13 You are tempted in the same way all other human beings are. God is faithful. He will not let you be tempted any more than you can take. But when you are tempted, God will give you a way out so that you can stand up under 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. NIRV 14 My dear friends, run away from statues of gods. Don't worship them. NIV 14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. NIRV 15 I'm talking to people who are reasonable. Judge for yourselves what I say. NIV 15 I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. NIRV 16 When we give thanks for the cup at the Lord's Supper, aren't we sharing in the blood of Christ? When we break the bread, aren't we 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? NIRV 17 Just as there is one loaf, so we who are many are one body. We all eat from the one loaf. NIV 17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf. NIRV 18 Think about the people of Israel. Don't those who eat the offerings share in the altar? NIV 18 Consider the people of Israel: Do not those who eat the sacrifices participate in the altar? NIRV 19 Do I mean that what is offered to a statue of a god is anything? Do I mean that a statue of a god is anything? NIV 19 Do I mean then that a sacrifice offered to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? NIRV 20 No! But what is offered by those who worship statues of gods is really offered to demons. It is not offered to God. I don't want you to be sharing 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. NIRV 21 You can't drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too. You can't have a part in both 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. NIRV 22 Are we trying to make the Lord jealous? Are we stronger than he is? NIV 22 Are we trying to arouse the Lord's jealousy? Are we stronger than he? NIRV 23 You say, "Everything is permitted." But not everything is good for us. Again you say, "Everything is permitted." But not everything builds us up. NIV 23 "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is constructive. NIRV 24 We should not look out for our own interests. Instead, we should look out for the interests of others. NIV 24 Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others. NIRV 25 Eat anything that is sold in the meat market. Don't ask if it's right or wrong. NIV 25 Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience, NIRV 26 Scripture says, "The earth belongs to the Lord. And so does everything in it."(Psalm 24:1) NIV 26 for, "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it." NIRV 27 Suppose an unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go. Then eat anything that is put in front of you. Don't ask if it's right or wrong. 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. NIRV 28 But suppose someone says to you, "This food has been offered to a statue of a god." Then don't eat it. Keep in mind the good of the one who told you. And don't eat because of a sense of what is right and 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-- NIRV 29 I'm talking about the other person's sense of what is right and wrong, not yours. Why should my freedom be judged by what someone else thinks? NIV 29 the other man's conscience, I mean, not yours. For why should my freedom be judged by another's conscience? NIRV 30 Suppose I give thanks when I eat. Then why should I be blamed for eating food I thank God for? NIV 30 If I take part in the meal with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of something I thank God for? NIRV 31 So eat and drink and do everything else 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. NIRV 32 Don't do anything that causes another person to trip and fall. It doesn't matter if that person is a Jew or a Greek or a member of God's church. NIV 32 Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God-- NIRV 33 Follow my example. I try to please everyone in every way. I'm not looking out for what is good for me. I'm looking out for the interests of others. I do it so that they might 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.
