1FOR I should like to remind you, my brothers, that our ancestors all had the experience of being guided by the cloud in the desert and of crossing the sea dryshod.

2They were all, so to speak, "baptized" into Moses by these experiences.

3They all shared the same spiritual food

4and drank the same spiritual drink (for they drank from the spiritual rock which followed them, and that rock was Christ).

5Yet in spite of all these experiences most of them failed to please God, and left their bones in the desert.

6Now in these events our ancestors stand as examples to us, warning us not to crave after evil things as they did.

7Nor are you to worship false gods as they did. The scripture saysThe people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

8Neither should we give way to sexual immorality as did some of them, for we read that twentythree thousand fell in a single day!

9Nor should we dare to exploit the goodness of God as some of them did, and fell victims to poisonous snakes.

10Nor yet must you curse the lot that God has appointed to you as some of them did, and met their end at the hand of the angel of death.

11Now these things which happened to our ancestors are illustrations of the way in which God works, and they were written down to be a warning to us who are living in the final days of the present order.

12So let the man who feels sure of his standing today be careful that he does not fall tomorrow.

13No temptation has come your way that is too hard for flesh and blood to bear. But God can be trusted not to allow you to suffer any temptation beyond your powers of endurance. He will see to it that every temptation has its way out, so that it will be possible for you to bear it.

14The lesson we must learn, my brothers, is at all costs to avoid worshipping a false god.

15I am speaking to you as intelligent men: use your judgment over what I am saying.

16The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a very sharing in the blood of Christ? When we break the bread do we not actually share in the body of Christ?

17The very fact that we, many as we are, share one bread makes us all one body.

18Look at the Jewish people. Isn't there a fellowship between all those who eat the altar sacrifices?

19How am I implying that a false god really exists, or that sacrifices made to any god have some value?

20Not at all! I say emphatically that gentile sacrifices are made to evil spiritual powers and not to God at all. I don't want you to have any fellowship with such powers.

21You cannot drink both the cup of the Lord and the cup of devils. You cannot be a guest at the Lord's table and at the table of devils.

22Are we trying to arouse the wrath of the Lord? Do we think we are stronger than he?

23As I have said before, the Christian position is this: I may do anything, but everything is not useful. Yes, I may do anything, but everything is not constructive.

24Let no man, then, set his own advantage as his objective, but rather the good of his neighbour.

25Eat whatever is sold in the meatmarket without any question of conscience.

26The whole earth and all that is in it belongs to the Lord.

27If a pagan asks you to dinner and you want to go, feel free to eat whatever is set before you, without asking any questions through conscientious scruples.

28But If someone should say straight out, "This has been offered to an idol", then don't eat it, for his sakeI mean for the sake of conscience, not yours but his.

29Now why should my freedom to eat be at the mercy of someone else's conscience?

30Or why should any evil be said of me when I have eaten food with gratitude, and have thanked God for it?

31Because, whatever you do, eating or drinking or anything else, everything should be done to bring glory to God.

32Do nothing that might make man stumble, whether they are Jews or Greeks or members of the church of God.

33I myself try to be agreeable to all men without considering my own advantage but that of the majority, that if possible they may be saved.
