1 Corinthians 8

WEB 1 Now concerning things sacrificed to idols: We know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. NIV 1 Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that “We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds up. WEB 2 But if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he doesn't yet know as he ought to know. NIV 2 Those who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to know. WEB 3 But if anyone loves God, the same is known by him. NIV 3 But whoever loves God is known by God. WEB 4 Therefore concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that no idol is anything in the world, and that there is no other God but one. NIV 4 So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that “An idol is nothing at all in the world” and that “There is no God but one.” WEB 5 For though there are things that are called "gods," whether in the heavens or on earth; as there are many "gods" and many "lords;" NIV 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”), WEB 6 yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we to him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we through him. NIV 6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. WEB 7 However, that knowledge isn't in all men. But some, being used until now to the idol, eat as of a thing sacrificed to an idol, and their conscience, being weak, is defiled. NIV 7 But not everyone possesses this knowledge. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat sacrificial food they think of it as having been sacrificed to a god, and since their conscience is weak, it is defiled. WEB 8 But food will not commend us to God. For neither, if we don't eat, are we the worse; nor, if we eat, are we the better. NIV 8 But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do. WEB 9 But be careful that by any means this liberty of yours doesn't become a stumbling block to the weak. NIV 9 Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak. WEB 10 For if a man sees you who have knowledge sitting in an idol's temple, won't his conscience, if he is weak, be emboldened to eat things sacrificed to idols? NIV 10 For if someone with a weak conscience sees you, with all your knowledge, eating in an idol’s temple, won’t that person be emboldened to eat what is sacrificed to idols? WEB 11 And through your knowledge, he who is weak perishes, the brother for whose sake Christ died. NIV 11 So this weak brother or sister, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your knowledge. WEB 12 Thus, sinning against the brothers, and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ. NIV 12 When you sin against them in this way and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ. WEB 13 Therefore, if food causes my brother to stumble, I will eat no meat forevermore, that I don't cause my brother to stumble. NIV 13 Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother or sister to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause them to fall.
