8:1 But of these things that be sacrificed to idols, we know, for all we have knowing. Soothly science in-bloweth with pride, charity edifieth. To speak of things dedicate unto idols, we are sure that we all have knowledge. Knowledge maketh a man swell: but love edifieth. And as touching things sacrificed unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge: knowledge puffeth up, but love edifieth. Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up: but Charity edifieth.
8:2 Forsooth if any man guess that he knoweth any thing, he hath not yet known how it behooveth him to know. if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. Now, if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.
8:3 And if any man loveth God, this is known of him. but if any man love god, the same is known of him. But if any man love God, the same is known of him. But if any man love God, the same is known of him.
8:4 But of meats that be offered to idols, we know, that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no God but one. To speak of meat dedicate unto idols, we are sure that there is none idol in the world: and that there is none other god but one. Concerning therefore meat sacrificed unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, & that there is none other God but one. As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.
8:5 For why though there be that be said gods, either in heaven, either in earth, as there be many gods, and many lords; And though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven other in earth (as there be gods many and lords many) For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven, or in earth, (as there be many gods, and many lords) For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth (as there be gods many, and lords many:)
8:6 nevertheless to us is one God, the Father, of whom be all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom be all things, and we by him. but unto us is there one god, which is the father, of whom are all things, and we in him: and one lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. Yet unto us there is but one God, which is the Father, of whom are all things, & we in him: & one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him, and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
8:7 But not in all men is knowing. For some men with conscience of idol till now eat as thing offered to idols; and their conscience is defouled, when it is sick. But every man hath not knowledge. for some suppose that there is an idol, until this hour, and eat as of a thing offered unto the idol, and so their consciences being yet weak are defiled. But every man hath not knowledge: for some having conscience of the idol, until this hour, eat as a thing sacrificed unto the idol, and so their conscience being weak, is defiled. Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour, eat it as a thing offered unto an idol, and their conscience being weak, is defiled.
8:8 Forsooth Meat commendeth us not to God; for neither we shall fail, if we eat not, neither if we eat, we shall abound. Meat maketh us not acceptable to god: Neither if we eat are we the better: Neither if we eat not are we the worse. But meat maketh not us acceptable to God: for neither if we eat, have we the more: neither if we eat not, have we the less. But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither if we eat, are we the better: neither if we eat not, are we the worse.
8:9 See ye forsooth, lest peradventure this your license be made hurting to sick men. But take heed that your liberty cause not the weak to fall. But take heed lest by any means this power of yours be an occasion of falling to them that are weak. But take heed lest by any means, this liberty of yours become a stumbling block to them that are weak.
8:10 For if any man shall see him, that hath knowing, eating in a place where idols be worshipped, whether his conscience, since it is sick, shall not be edified to eat things offered to idols? For if some man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol’s temple shall not the conscience of him which is weak be boldened to eat those things which are offered unto the idol? For if any man see thee which hast knowledge, sit at table in the idol’s temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak, be boldened to eat those things which are sacrificed to idols? For if any man see thee which hast knowledge, sit at meat in the idol’s temple: shall not the conscience of him which is weak, be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols?
8:11 And the sick brother, for whom Christ died, shall perish in thy knowing. And so through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish for whom christ died. And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died. And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?
8:12 For thus ye sinning against brethren, and smiting their sick conscience, sin against Christ. When we sin so against the brethren and wound their weak consciences, we sin against Christ. Now when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ. But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.
8:13 Wherefore if meat causeth my brother to offend, I shall not eat flesh into without end, lest I cause my brother to offend. Wherefore if meat hurt my brother, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, because I will not hurt my brother. Wherefore if meat offend my brother, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, that I may not offend my brother. Wherefore if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.
