14:1 Forsooth take ye a sick man in belief, not in deceptions of thoughts. Him that is weak in the faith, receive unto you, not in disputing and troubling his conscience. Him that is weak in the faith, receive unto you, but not for controversies of disputations. Him that is weak in the faith receive you, but not to doubtful disputations.
14:2 For another man believeth, that he may eat all things; but he that is sick, eat worts. One believeth that he may eat all things. Another which is weak eateth herbs. One believeth that he may eat of all things: & another, which is weak, eateth herbs. For one believeth that he may eat all things: another who is weak, eateth herbs.
14:3 He that eateth, despise not him that eateth not; and he that eateth not, deem not him that eateth. For why God hath taken him. let not him that eateth, despise him that eateth not. And let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth. For God hath received him. Let not him that eateth, despise him that eateth not: and let not him which eateth not, judge him that eateth: for God hath received him. Let not him that eateth, despise him that eateth not: and let not him which eateth not, judge him that eateth. For God hath received him.
14:4 Who art thou, that deemest another’s servant? To his lord he standeth, or falleth down. Forsooth he shall stand; for the Lord is mighty to ordain him. What art thou that judgest another man’s servant? Whether he stand or fall, that pertaineth unto his master. Yea, he shall stand. For God is able to make him stand. Who art thou that condemnest another man’s servant? he standeth or falleth to his own master: yea, he shall be established: for God is able to make him stand. Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth; Yea he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
14:5 For why one deemeth a day between a day, another deemeth each day. Each man increase in his wit. This man putteth difference between day and day: another man counteth all days alike. See that no man waver in his own mind. This man esteemeth one day above another day, & another man counteth every day alike: let every man be fully persuaded in his mind. One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
14:6 He that savoureth the day, understandeth to the Lord. And he that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he doeth thankings to God. And he that eateth not, eateth not to the Lord, and doeth thankings to God. He that observeth one day more than another, doeth it for the lord’s pleasure. And he that observeth not one day more than another, doeth it to please the lord, for he giveth god thanks. and he that eateth not, eateth not to please the lord withal, and giveth god thanks. He that observeth the day, observeth it to the Lord: and he that observeth not the day, observeth it not to the Lord. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord: for he giveth God thanks: and he that eateth not, eateth not to the Lord, and giveth God thanks. He that regardeth a day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks: and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
14:7 For no man of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For none of us liveth his own servant. and also none of us dieth his own servant. For none of us liveth to himself, neither doth any die to himself. For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
14:8 For whether we live, we live to the Lord; and whether we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore whether we live or die, we be Lord’s. If we live, we live to be at the lord’s will. if we die, we die at the lord’s will. Whether we live therefore or die, we are the lord’s. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord: or whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord: and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord’s.
14:9 For why for this thing Christ was dead, and rose again, that he be Lord and of quick and of dead. For Christ therefore died and rose again, and revived, that he should be lord both of dead and quick. For Christ therefore died and rose again, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and the quick. For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
14:10 But what deemest thou thy brother? or why despisest thou thy brother? for all we shall stand before the throne of Christ. But why dost thou then judge thy brother? other why dost thou despise thy brother? We shall all be brought before the judgement seat of Christ. But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou despise thy brother? for we shall all appear before the judgement seat of Christ. But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? we shall all stand before the Judgement seat of Christ.
14:11 For it is written, I live, saith the Lord, for to me each knee shall be bowed, and each tongue shall acknowledge to God. For it is written: As truly as I live saith the lord, all knees shall bow to me, and all tongues shall give knowledge to god. For it is written, I live, saith the Lord, and every knee shall bow to me, and all tongues shall confess unto God. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
14:12 And so each of us shall yield reason to God for himself. So shall every one of us give accompts of himself to God. So then every one of us shall give accounts of himself to God. So then every one of us shall give accompt of himself to God.
14:13 Therefore no more deem we each other; but more deem ye this thing, that ye put not hurting, or cause of stumbling or offence, to a brother. let us not therefore, judge one another any more. But judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block, or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way. Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but use your judgement rather in this, that no man put an occasion to fall, or a stumbling block before his brother. Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block, or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.
14:14 I know and trust in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean by him, but to him that deemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean. For I know, and surely believe in the lord Jesus, that there is nothing common of itself: but unto him that judgeth it to be common, to him it is common. I know, & am persuaded through the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but unto him that judgeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean. I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
14:15 Soothly if thy brother be made sorry for meat, now thou walkest not after charity. Do not through thy meat lose him, for whom Christ died. If thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died. But if thy brother be grieved for the meat, now walkest thou not charitably: destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died. But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat: now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.
14:16 Therefore be not our good thing blasphemed. Suffer ye not that your treasure be evil spoken of. Cause not your commodity to be evil spoken of. Let not then your good be evil spoken of.
14:17 For why the realm of God is not meat and drink, but rightwiseness and peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. For the kingdom of god is not meat and drink, but rightwiseness, peace and joy, in the holy ghost. For the kingdom of God is not meat nor drink, but righteousness, and peace, & joy in the holy Ghost. For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the holy Ghost.
14:18 And he that in this thing serveth Christ, pleaseth God, and is proved to men. For whosoever in these things serveth Christ, pleaseth well god: and is commended of men. For whosoever in these things serveth Christ, is acceptable unto God, and is approved of men. For he that in these things serveth Christ, is acceptable to God, and approved of men.
14:19 Therefore follow we those things that be of peace, and keep we those things together that be of edification. Let us follow those things which make for peace: and things wherewith one may edify another. Let us then follow those things which concern peace, and wherewith one may edify another. Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
14:20 Do not thou for meat destroy the work of God. For all things be clean, but it is evil to the man that eateth by offending. Destroy not the work of God for a little meat’s sake. All things are pure: but it is evil for that man, which eateth with hurt of his conscience. Destroy not the work of God for meat’s sake: all things indeed are pure: but it is evil for the man which eateth with offence. For meat, destroy not the work of God: all things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.
14:21 It is good to not eat flesh, and to not drink wine, neither in what thing thy brother offendeth, or is caused to offend, or is made sick. It is good neither to eat flesh, neither to drink wine, neither any thing, whereby thy brother stumbleth, other falleth, or is made weak. It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing, whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or made weak. It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.
14:22 Thou hast faith with thyself, have thou before God. Blessed is he that deemeth not himself in that thing that he proveth. Hast thou faith? have it with thyself before god. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. Hast thou faith? have it with thyself before God: blessed is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.
14:23 Forsooth he that deemeth, is damned, if he eateth; for why? for his eating is not of faith. Forsooth all things that is not of faith, is sin. For he that maketh conscience, is damned if he eat: Because he doeth it not of faith. For whatsoever is not of faith, that same is sin. For he that doubteth, is condemned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: & whatsoever is not of faith, is sin. And he that doubteth, is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: For whatsoever is not of faith, is sin.
