Romans 14:1

Him that is weak (ton asqenounta). See on 1 Corinthians 8:7-12 ; 1 Corinthians 9:22 ; Romans 4:19 . Receive ye (proslambanesqe). Present middle imperative (indirect), "take to yourselves." Yet not to doubtful disputations (mh ei diakrisei dialogismwn). "Not for decisions of opinions." Note dia (between, two or duo) in both words. Discriminations between doubts or hesitations. For diakrisi, see 1 Corinthians 12:10 ; Hebrews 5:14 (only N.T. examples). For dialogismo see Luke 2:35 ; Luke 24:38 ; Philippians 2:14 . The "strong" brother is not called upon to settle all the scruples of the "weak" brother. But each takes it on himself to do it.
