And concerning the things sacrificed to idols, we have known that we all have knowledge: knowledge puffeth up, but love buildeth up;
and if any one doth think to know anything, he hath not yet known anything according as it behoveth [him] to know;
and if any one doth love God, this one hath been known by Him.
Concerning the eating then of the things sacrificed to idols, we have known that an idol [is] nothing in the world, and that there is no other God except one;
for even if there are those called gods, whether in heaven, whether upon earth -- as there are gods many and lords many --
yet to us [is] one God, the Father, of whom [are] the all things, and we to Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom [are] the all things, and we through Him;
