1st Corinthians Chapter 10
10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the
blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of
the body of Christ?
10:17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all
partakers of that one bread.
10:18 Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the
sacrifices partakers of the altar?
10:19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is
offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?
10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they
sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have
fellowship with devils.
10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye
cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
10:22 Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?
10:23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient:
all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
10:24 Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth.
10:25 Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question
for conscience sake:
10:26 For the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof.
10:27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be
disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question
for conscience sake.
10:28 But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto
idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for
the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof:
10:29 Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my
liberty judged of another man's conscience?
10:30 For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that
for which I give thanks?
10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to
the glory of God.
10:32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor
to the church of God:
10:33 Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own
profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.
