Romans 14

CEB 1 Welcome the person who is weak in faith—but not in order to argue about differences of opinion. NRS 1 Welcome those who are weak in faith, but not for the purpose of quarreling over opinions. CEB 2 One person believes in eating everything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. NRS 2 Some believe in eating anything, while the weak eat only vegetables. CEB 3 Those who eat must not look down on the ones who don't, and the ones who don't eat must not judge the ones who do, because God has accepted them. NRS 3 Those who eat must not despise those who abstain, and those who abstain must not pass judgment on those who eat; for God has welcomed them. CEB 4 Who are you to judge someone else's servants? They stand or fall before their own Lord (and they will stand, because the Lord has the power to make them stand). NRS 4 Who are you to pass judgment on servants of another? It is before their own lord that they stand or fall. And they will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make them stand. CEB 5 One person considers some days to be more sacred than others, while another person considers all days to be the same. Each person must have their own convictions. NRS 5 Some judge one day to be better than another, while others judge all days to be alike. Let all be fully convinced in their own minds. CEB 6 Someone who thinks that a day is sacred, thinks that way for the Lord. Those who eat, eat for the Lord, because they thank God. And those who don't eat, don't eat for the Lord, and they thank the Lord too. NRS 6 Those who observe the day, observe it in honor of the Lord. Also those who eat, eat in honor of the Lord, since they give thanks to God; while those who abstain, abstain in honor of the Lord and give thanks to God. CEB 7 We don't live for ourselves and we don't die for ourselves. NRS 7 We do not live to ourselves, and we do not die to ourselves. CEB 8 If we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we belong to God. NRS 8 If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's. CEB 9 This is why Christ died and lived: so that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living. NRS 9 For to this end Christ died and lived again, so that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living. CEB 10 But why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you look down on your brother or sister? We all will stand in front of the judgment seat of God. NRS 10 Why do you pass judgment on your brother or sister? Or you, why do you despise your brother or sister? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. CEB 11 Because it is written, As I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow to me, and every tongue will give praise to God. NRS 11 For it is written, "As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall give praise to God." CEB 12 So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God. NRS 12 So then, each of us will be accountable to God. CEB 13 So stop judging each other. Instead, this is what you should decide: never put a stumbling block or obstacle in the way of your brother or sister. NRS 13 Let us therefore no longer pass judgment on one another, but resolve instead never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of another. CEB 14 I know and I'm convinced in the Lord Jesus that nothing is wrong to eat in itself. But if someone thinks something is wrong to eat, it becomes wrong for that person. NRS 14 I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself; but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean. CEB 15 If your brother or sister is upset by your food, you are no longer walking in love. Don't let your food destroy someone for whom Christ died. NRS 15 If your brother or sister is being injured by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. Do not let what you eat cause the ruin of one for whom Christ died. CEB 16 And don't let something you consider to be good be criticized as wrong. NRS 16 So do not let your good be spoken of as evil. CEB 17 God's kingdom isn't about eating food and drinking but about righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. NRS 17 For the kingdom of God is not food and drink but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. CEB 18 Whoever serves Christ this way pleases God and gets human approval. NRS 18 The one who thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and has human approval. CEB 19 So let's strive for the things that bring peace and the things that build each other up. NRS 19 Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding. CEB 20 Don't destroy what God has done because of food. All food is acceptable, but it's a bad thing if it trips someone else. NRS 20 Do not, for the sake of food, destroy the work of God. Everything is indeed clean, but it is wrong for you to make others fall by what you eat; CEB 21 It's a good thing not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything that trips your brother or sister. NRS 21 it is good not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything that makes your brother or sister stumble. CEB 22 Keep the belief that you have to yourself—it's between you and God. People are blessed who don't convict themselves by the things they approve. NRS 22 The faith that you have, have as your own conviction before God. Blessed are those who have no reason to condemn themselves because of what they approve. CEB 23 But those who have doubts are convicted if they go ahead and eat, because they aren't acting on the basis of faith. Everything that isn't based on faith is sin. NRS 23 But those who have doubts are condemned if they eat, because they do not act from faith; for whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.
