10:1 Soothly, brethren, I will not you to unknow, that all our fathers were under a cloud, and all passed the sea; Brethren I would not that ye should be ignorant of this, how that our fathers were all under a cloud, and all passed through the sea, Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, Moreover brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the Sea:
10:2 and all were baptized in Moses, in the cloud and in the sea; and were all baptised under Moses in the cloud, and in the sea. And were all baptized unto Moses, in the cloud, and in the sea, And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud, and in the sea:
10:3 and all ate the same spiritual meat, and did all eat of one spiritual meat, And did all eat the same spiritual meat, And did all eat the same spiritual meat:
10:4 and all drank the same spiritual drink; forsooth they drank of the spiritual stone following them; and the stone was Christ. and did all drink of one manner of spiritual drink. And they drank of that spiritual rock that followed them, which rock was Christ. And did all drink the same spiritual drink (for they drank of the spiritual Rock that followed them: and the Rock was Christ) And did all drink the same spiritual drink: (for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ)
10:5 But not in full many of them it was well pleasant to God; for why they were cast down in the desert. But in many of them had god no delight. For they were overthrown in the wilderness. But with many of them God was not pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
10:6 But these things were done in figure of us, that we be not coveters of evil things, and they coveted. These are ensamples to us that we should not lust after evil things, as they lusted. Now these are ensamples to us, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
10:7 Neither be ye made idolaters, as some of them; as it is written, The people sat to eat and drink, and they have risen up to play. Neither be ye worshippers of Images as were some of them according as it is written: The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up again to play. Neither be ye idolaters as were some of them, as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them, as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
10:8 Neither do we fornication, as some of them did fornication, and three and twenty thousand fell in one day. Neither let us commit fornication as some of them committed fornication, and were destroyed in one day twenty three thousand. Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed fornication, and fell in one day three & twenty thousand. Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
10:9 Neither tempt we Christ, as some of them tempted, and perished of serpents. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them tempted and were destroyed of serpents. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted him, & were destroyed of serpents. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
10:10 Neither grutch ye, as some of them grutched, and they perished of the waster. Neither murmur ye as some of them murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
10:11 And all these things fell to them in figure; soothly they be written to our correction, into whom the ends of the world have come. All these things happened unto them for ensamples, and were written to put us in remembrance, whom the ends of the world are come upon. Now all these things came unto them for ensamples, and were written to admonish us, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
10:12 And so he that guesseth him to stand, see, that he fall not. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth, take heed lest he fall. Wherefore, let him that thinketh he standeth, take heed lest he fall. Wherefore, let him that thinketh he standeth, take heed lest he fall.
10:13 Temptation take not you, but man’s temptation; for God is true, which shall not suffer you to be tempted above that that ye be able; but he shall make with temptation also purveyance, that ye may sustain. There hath none other temptation taken you, but such as followeth the nature of man. God is faithful, which shall not suffer you to be tempted above your strength: but shall in the midst of the temptation make a way to escape out. There hath no temptation taken you, but such as appertaineth to man: and God is faithful, which will not suffer you to be tempted above that you be able, but will even give the issue with the temptation, that ye may be able to bear it. There hath no temptation taken you, but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able: but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
10:14 Wherefore, ye most dear-worthy to me, flee from worshipping of idols. Wherefore my dear beloved, flee from worshipping of idols. Wherefore my beloved, flee from idolatry. Wherefore my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
10:15 As to prudent men I speak, deem ye yourselves that thing that I say. I speak as unto them which have discretion, Judge ye what I say. I speak as unto them which have understanding: judge ye what I say. I speak as to wise men: judge ye what I say.
10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, whether it is not the communing of Christ’s blood? and the bread which we break, whether it is not the dealing of the body of the Lord? Is not the cup of blessing which we bless, partaking of the blood of Christ? is not the bread which we break, partaking of the body of Christ? 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? 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 many be one bread and one body, all we that take part of one bread and of one cup. because that we (though we be many) yet are one bread, and one body inasmuch as we all are partakers of one bread. For we that are many, are one bread & one body, because we all are partakers of one bread. For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.
10:18 See ye Israel after the flesh, whether they that eat sacrifices, be not partners of the altar? Behold Israhel which walketh carnally. Are not they which eat of the sacrifice, partakers of the altar? Behold Israel which is after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices, partakers of the altar? Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices, partakers of the Altar?
10:19 What therefore say I, that a thing that is offered to idols is any thing, or that the idol is any thing? What say I then? that the image is any thing? or that it which is offered to images is any thing? What say I then? that the idol is any thing? or that that which is sacrificed to idols, is any thing? 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 those things that heathen men offer, they offer to devils, and not to God. But I will not, that ye be made fellows of fiends; Nay, but I say, that those things which the gentiles offer, they offer to devils, and not to god. And I would not that ye should have fellowship with the devils. Nay, but that these things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not unto God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with the devils. 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 for ye may not drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of fiends; ye may not be partners of the board of the Lord, and of the board of fiends. Ye cannot drink of the cup of the lord, and of the cup of the devils. Ye cannot be partakers of the lord’s table, and of the table of devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of the devils. Ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table and of the table of devils. 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 Whether we have envy to the Lord? whether we be stronger than he? Other shall we provoke the lord? other are we stronger than he? Do we provoke the Lord to anger? are we stronger than he? Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?
10:23 All things be leaveful to me, but not all things be speedful. All things be leaveful to me, but not all things edify. All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient. All things are lawful, but all things edify not. All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. 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 No man seek that thing that is his own, but that thing that is of another. Let no man seek his own profit: but let every man seek his neighbour’s wealth. Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s wealth. Let no man seek his own: but every man another’s wealth.
10:25 All thing that is sold in the butchery, eat ye, asking nothing for conscience. Whatsoever is sold in the market, that eat, and ask no questions for conscience sake. Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, eat ye, & ask no question for conscience sake. Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake.
10:26 The earth and the plenty of it, is the Lord’s. For the earth is the lord’s, and all that therein is. For the earth is the Lord’s, and all that therein is. For the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof.
10:27 Forsooth if any of unfaithful calleth you to supper, and ye will go, all things that is set to you, eat ye, asking nothing for conscience. If any of them which believe not bid you to a feast, and if ye be disposed to go, whatsoever is set before you eat, asking no question for conscience sake: If any of them which believe not, call you to a feast, and if ye will go, whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake. 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 If any man soothly say to you, This thing is offered to idols, do not ye eat, for him that shewed this thing, and for conscience; but and if any man say unto you: this is dedicate unto idols, eat not of it for his sake that shewed it, and for hurting of conscience: the earth is the lord’s and all that therein is. But if any man say unto you, This is sacrificed unto idols, eat it not, because of him that shewed it, and for the conscience (for the earth is the Lord’s, and all that therein is) 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. The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof.
10:29 and I say not, thy conscience, but of another man’s. Soothly whereto is my liberty deemed of another man’s conscience? Conscience I say, not thine: but the conscience of that other. Why should my liberty be judged of another man’s conscience? And the conscience I say, not thine, but of that other: for why should my liberty be condemned of another man’s conscience? Conscience I say, not thine own, but of the others: for why is my liberty judged of another man’s conscience?
10:30 Therefore if I take part with grace, what am I blasphemed, for that that I do graces? For if I take my part with thanks: why am I evil spoken of for that thing wherefore I give thanks. For if I through God’s benefit be partaker, why am I evil spoken of, for that wherefore I give thanks? For, if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of, for that for which I give thanks?
10:31 Therefore whether ye eat, or drink, or do any other thing, do ye all things to the glory of God. Whether therefore ye eat or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the praise of God. Whether therefore ye eat or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. Whether therefore ye eat or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
10:32 Be ye without offence to Jews, and to heathen men, and to the church of God; See that ye give occasion of evil, neither to the jews, nor yet to the gentiles, neither to the congregation of god: Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Grecians, nor to the Church of God: Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the Church of God:
10:33 and I by all things please to all men, not seeking what is profitable to me, but that that is profitable to many men, that they be made safe. even as I please all men in all things not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they might be saved. Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they might be saved. Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.
