1 Corinthians 8

DBY 1 But concerning things sacrificed to idols, we know, (for we all have knowledge: knowledge puffs up, but love edifies. NIV 1 Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that “We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds up. DBY 2 If any one think he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know [it]. NIV 2 Those who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to know. DBY 3 But if any one love God, *he* is known of him): NIV 3 But whoever loves God is known by God. DBY 4 -- concerning then the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that an idol [is] nothing in [the] world, and that there [is] no other God save 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.” DBY 5 For and if indeed there are [those] called gods, whether in heaven or on earth, (as there are gods many, and lords many,) 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”), DBY 6 yet to us [there is] one God, the Father, of whom all things, and *we* for him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom [are] all things, and *we* by 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. DBY 7 But knowledge [is] not in all: but some, with conscience of the idol, until now eat as of a thing sacrificed to idols; 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. DBY 8 But meat does not commend us to God; neither if we should not eat do we come short; nor if we should eat have we an advantage. 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. DBY 9 But see lest anywise this your right [to eat] itself be 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. DBY 10 For if any one see thee, who hast knowledge, sitting at table in an idol-house, shall not his conscience, he being weak, be emboldened to eat the things sacrificed to the idol? 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? DBY 11 and the weak [one], the brother for whose sake Christ died, will perish through thy knowledge. NIV 11 So this weak brother or sister, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your knowledge. DBY 12 Now, thus sinning against the brethren, and wounding their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ. NIV 12 When you sin against them in this way and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ. DBY 13 Wherefore if meat be a fall-trap to my brother, I will eat no flesh for ever, that I may not be a fall-trap to my brother. 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.
