1 Not I wish for you to be ignorant, brethren, that the fathers of us all under the cloud were, and all through the sea, passed,
2 and all into the Moses were dipped in the cloud and in the sea,
3 and all the same food spiritual did eat,
4 and all the same drink spiritual did drink; (they drank for from spiritual following a rock; the but rock was the Anointed);
5 but not with the greater number of them was wellpleased the God; they were laid prostrate for in the desert.
6 These things but types of us were made, in order that not to be us lusters of evil things, as even they lusted.
7 Nor imageworshippers become you, as some of them; as it has been written: Sat down the people to eat and to drink, and stood up to sport.
8 Nor should we fornicate, as some of them fornicated, and fell in one day twentythree thousands.
9 Nor should we tempt the Anointed, as also some of them tempted, and by the serpents were destroyed.
10 Nor murmur you, as also some of them murmured, and were destroyed by the destroyer.
11 These things and all types happened to them; was written and for admonition of us, on whom the ends of the ages met.
12 So that the one thinking to have stood, let him take care lest he should fall.
13 A temptation you not has taken if not being belonging to man; faithful but the God, who not will permit you to be tempted above what you are able, but will make you with the temptation also the way out, that you may be able to bear up under.
14 Wherefore, beloved ones of me, flee you from the imageworship.
15 As to wise men I speak, judge you what I say.
16 The cup of the blessing which we bless, not a participation of the blood of the Anointed is it? the loaf which we break, not a participation of the body of the Anointed is it?
17 Because one loaf, one body the many we are; these for all from of the one loaf partake.
18 See you the Israel according to flesh; not those eating the sacrifices partakers of the altar are?
19 because an idol anything is? or because an idol sacrifice anything is?
20 But, because what sacrifice the Gentiles, to demons they sacrifice, and not to God; not I wish and you partakers of the demons to become.
21 Not you are able a cup of Lord to drink and a cup of demons; not you are a table of Lord to partake and a table of demons.
22 Or do we provoke to jealously the Lord? not stronger of him we are?
23 All things it is lawful, but not all things are beneficial; all things it is lawful, but not all things builds up.
24 No one that of himself let him seek, but that of the other.
25 Every thing that in market is being sold eat you, not asking questions, on account of the conscience;
26 of the Lord the earth and the fulness of her.
27 If but any one invites you the unbelieving, and you wish to go, everything that is being presented to you eat you, not asking questions, on account of the conscience.
28 If but any one to you should say: This an idol sacrifice is; not eat you on account of him the one having disclosed, and the conscience.
29 Conscience now I say, not that of thyself, but that of the other. Why for the freedom of me is judged by another conscience?
30 If I by favor partake, why am I blamed on account of which I give thanks?
31 Whether then you eat, or you drink, or anything you do, all things for glory of God do you.
32 Not causes of stumbling become you both to Jews and Greeks and to the congregation of the God;
33 even as also I all things all men please, not seeking that of myself being profitable, but that of the many, that they may be saved.
