1 Corinthians 10

NLT 1 I don’t want you to forget, dear brothers and sisters, about our ancestors in the wilderness long ago. All of them were guided by a cloud that moved ahead of them, and all of them walked through the sea on dry ground. NIV 1 For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. NLT 2 In the cloud and in the sea, all of them were baptized as followers of Moses. NIV 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. NLT 3 All of them ate the same spiritual food, NIV 3 They all ate the same spiritual food NLT 4 and all of them drank the same spiritual water. For they drank from the spiritual rock that traveled with 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. NLT 5 Yet God was not pleased with most of them, and their bodies were scattered in the wilderness. NIV 5 Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered in the wilderness. NLT 6 These things happened as a warning to us, so that we would not crave evil things as they did, NIV 6 Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. NLT 7 or worship idols as some of them did. As the Scriptures say, “The people celebrated with feasting and drinking, and they indulged in pagan revelry.” 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 revelry.” NLT 8 And we must not engage in sexual immorality as some of them did, causing 23,000 of them to die in one day. NIV 8 We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died. NLT 9 Nor should we put Christ to the test, as some of them did and then died from snakebites. NIV 9 We should not test Christ, as some of them did—and were killed by snakes. NLT 10 And don’t grumble as some of them did, and then were destroyed by the angel of death. NIV 10 And do not grumble, as some of them did—and were killed by the destroying angel. NLT 11 These things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age. NIV 11 These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come. NLT 12 If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. NIV 12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! NLT 13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. NIV 13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. 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 endure it. NLT 14 So, my dear friends, flee from the worship of idols. NIV 14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. NLT 15 You are reasonable people. Decide for yourselves if what I am saying is true. NIV 15 I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. NLT 16 When we bless the cup at the Lord’s Table, aren’t we sharing in the blood of Christ? And 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? NLT 17 And though we are many, we all eat from one loaf of bread, showing that we are one body. NIV 17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf. NLT 18 Think about the people of Israel. Weren’t they united by eating the sacrifices at the altar? NIV 18 Consider the people of Israel: Do not those who eat the sacrifices participate in the altar? NLT 19 What am I trying to say? Am I saying that food offered to idols has some significance, or that idols are real gods? NIV 19 Do I mean then that food sacrificed to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? NLT 20 No, not at all. I am saying that these sacrifices are offered to demons, not to God. And I don’t want you to participate 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. NLT 21 You cannot drink from the cup of the Lord and from the cup of demons, too. You cannot eat at the Lord’s Table and at the table of demons, too. 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. NLT 22 What? Do we dare to rouse the Lord’s jealousy? Do you think we are stronger than he is? NIV 22 Are we trying to arouse the Lord’s jealousy? Are we stronger than he? NLT 23 You say, “I am allowed to do anything” —but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is beneficial. NIV 23 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive. NLT 24 Don’t be concerned for your own good but for the good of others. NIV 24 No one should seek their own good, but the good of others. NLT 25 So you may eat any meat that is sold in the marketplace without raising questions of conscience. NIV 25 Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience, NLT 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.” NLT 27 If someone who isn’t a believer asks you home for dinner, accept the invitation if you want to. Eat whatever is offered to you without raising questions of conscience. NIV 27 If an unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat whatever is put before you without raising questions of conscience. NLT 28 (But suppose someone tells you, “This meat was offered to an idol.” Don’t eat it, out of consideration for the conscience of the one who told you. NIV 28 But if someone says to you, “This has been offered in sacrifice,” then do not eat it, both for the sake of the one who told you and for the sake of conscience. NLT 29 It might not be a matter of conscience for you, but it is for the other person.) For why should my freedom be limited by what someone else thinks? NIV 29 I am referring to the other person’s conscience, not yours. For why is my freedom being judged by another’s conscience? NLT 30 If I can thank God for the food and enjoy it, why should I be condemned for eating it? NIV 30 If I take part in the meal with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of something I thank God for? NLT 31 So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, 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. NLT 32 Don’t give offense to Jews or Gentiles or the church of God. NIV 32 Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God— NLT 33 I, too, try to please everyone in everything I do. I don’t just do what is best for me; I do what is best for others so that many may be saved. NIV 33 even as I try to please everyone in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.
