But, ye, - do not be called Rabbi, - for, one, is your Teacher, and, all ye, are brethren; And, father, be none of you called, upon the earth, for, one, is your Father, the Heavenly; Neither be called leaders, for, your leader, is one, the Christ;

And there is in no one else, salvation, for, neither is there any other name, under heaven, which hath been set forth among men, in which we must needs be saved.

Concerning, then, the eating of idol-sacrifices, we are aware - that an idol is, nothing, in the world, and that, none, is God save one. For, if indeed there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or upon earth, - as indeed there are gods many and lords many, Yet, to us, there is one God the Father, of whom are all things, and, we, for him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and, we, through him.


I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus - that, nothing, is profane of itself, - save to him who reckoneth anything to be profane, unto that man, it is profane, If, in fact, because of food, thy brother is being grieved, no longer, by the rule of love, art thou walking: - do not, by thy food, that man, be destroying, on whose behalf Christ died! Therefore, suffer not to be defamed, your own good thing; read more.
For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in Holy Spirit; For, he that in this doeth service unto the Christ, is acceptable unto God, and approved unto men. Hence, then, the things pertaining to peace, let us pursue, and the things which belong to the upbuilding one of another: Do not, for the sake of food, be throwing down the work of God! All things, indeed, are pure; but, ill, is it for the man who with occasion of stumbling doth eat, - Well, is it not to eat flesh nor to drink wine nor to do aught whereby thy brother is caused to stumble. The faith which thou hast, have to thyself before God: happy, he that bringeth not judgment upon himself by that which he approveth; But, he that is in doubt, if he eat, hath condemned himself, - because, it was not of faith, and, everything which is not of faith, is sin.

Now, concerning the idol-sacrifices, we are aware - because we, all, have knowledge, - knowledge, puffeth up, but, love, buildeth up; If anyone thinketh that he knoweth anything, not yet knoweth he, as he must needs come to know, But, if anyone loveth God, the same, is known of him - read more.

Howbeit, not in all, is the knowledge; but, some, by their familiarity, until even now, with the idol, as an idol-sacrifice, eat it, and, their conscience, being, weak, is defiled. Food, indeed, will not commend us unto God, - neither, if we eat not, do we lack, nor, if we eat, do we abound. But be taking heed, lest, by any means, your right, itself, become, an occasion of stumbling, unto the weak; For, if anyone should see theewho hast knowledge, in an idol-temple, reclining, will not, his conscience, being, weak, be built up for the eating of the idol-sacrifices? In fact, he that is weak, is being destroyed, by thy knowledge - the brother for whose sake Christ died. But, in thus sinning against the brethren am wounding their conscience, seeing it is weak, against Christ, are ye sinning. Therefore, if food is an occasion of stumbling unto my brother, in nowise will I eat flesh unto the age that abideth, - that, I may not occasion, my brother, to stumble.

Wherefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry, - As, to prudent men, I speak, - judge, ye, what I say: - The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not, a sharing together of the blood of the Christ? The loaf which we break, is it not, a sharing together of the body of the Christ? read more.
Because, one loaf, one body, we, the many, are, for we, all, of the one loaf, partake. Be looking at Israel after the flesh: - are not, they who eat the sacrifices, joint partakers with the altar? What, then, am I saying? - that, an idol-sacrifice, is anything? or that, an idol, is anything? On the contrary - that, the things which the nations sacrifice, unto demons, and not unto God, they sacrifice; and I wish not that ye should become, sharers together with the demons! Ye cannot be drinking - a cup of the Lord, and a cup of demons; ye cannot be partaking of, a table of the Lord, and a table of demons. Or are we to provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we mightier than he? All things are allowable - but, not all things, are profitable, - all things are allowable - but, not all things, upbuild. Let, no one, be seeking, what concerneth himself, but that which concerneth some one else. Whatsoever, in the market, is sold, eat, - asking no question, for conscience sake; For, unto the Lord, belongeth the earth, and the fullness thereof. If one of them who believe not invite you, and ye are disposed to go, whatsoever is set before you, eat, - asking no question, for conscience sake. But, if anyone should say unto you, - This, is, a holy sacrifice, do not eat, for that man's sake who disclosed it, and for conscience sake: - But, conscience, I mean, not thine own, but the other's, - for why is my freedom to be judged by another's conscience? If, I, with gratitude, partake, why am I to be defamed, as to that for which, I, give thanks? Whether, therefore, ye eat or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do, all things to the glory of God. Give no occasion of stumbling - whether to Jews, or to Greeks, or to the assembly of God: Even as, I also, in all things do please all, not seeking my own profit, but that of the many, that they may be saved.

But, thou, why dost thou judge thy brother? Aye! and thou, why dost thou despise thy brother? For, all of us, shall present ourselves unto the judgment seat of God; For it is written - Living am, I, saith the Lord, unto me, shall bow every knee, and, every tongue, shall openly confess unto God.

they drank wine, - and praised the gods of gold and silver, bronze, iron, wood and stone.

Ye know that, when ye were of the nations, unto the dumb idols, howsoever ye were being led, ye were seduced.

Hath a nation, changed gods, although they were No-gods? Yet my people have changed my glory for that which could not profit!

For, all the gods of the peoples, are things of nought, but, Yahweh, made, the heavens.

Then shall the cities of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, go and make outcry unto the gods to whom they have been burning incense, - but they will not at all, save, them in the time of their calamity;

And filled is their land with idols, - To the work of their own hands, do they bow themselves down, To that which they made with their own fingers.


For, if indeed there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or upon earth, - as indeed there are gods many and lords many,

Shall a son of earth, make for himself gods, Seeing that, they, are no-gods?
