1 Corinthians 10:20-30

RSV 20 No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be partners 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. RSV 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord 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. RSV 22 Shall we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he? NIV 22 Are we trying to arouse the Lord's jealousy? Are we stronger than he? RSV 23 "All things are lawful," but not all things are helpful. "All things are lawful," but not all things build up. NIV 23 "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is constructive. RSV 24 Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor. NIV 24 Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others. RSV 25 Eat whatever is sold in the meat market without raising any question on the ground of conscience. NIV 25 Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience, RSV 26 For "the earth is the Lord's, and everything in it." NIV 26 for, "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it." RSV 27 If one of the unbelievers invites you to dinner and you are disposed to go, eat whatever is set before you without raising any question on the ground of conscience. 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. RSV 28 (But if some one says to you, "This has been offered in sacrifice," then out of consideration for the man who informed you, and for conscience' sake-- 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-- RSV 29 I mean his conscience, not yours--do not eat it.) For why should my liberty be determined by another man's scruples? NIV 29 the other man's conscience, I mean, not yours. For why should my freedom be judged by another's conscience? RSV 30 If I partake with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of that for which I give thanks? NIV 30 If I take part in the meal with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of something I thank God for?
