NowG1161 as touchingG4012 things offeredG1494 to idols,G1494 we knowG1492 that we allG3956 haveG2192 knowledge.G1108 KnowledgeG1108 puffsG5448 up, but charityG26 edifies.G3618
And ifG1487 anyG5100 man thinkG1380 that he knowsG1492 anyG5100 thing, he knowsG1097 nothingG3762 yetG3764 as he oughtG1163 to know.G1097
But ifG1487 anyG5100 man loveG25 God,G2316 the sameG3778 is knownG1097 of him.
As concerningG4012 thereforeG3767 the eatingG1035 of thoseG3588 things that are offeredG1494 in sacrificeG1494 to idols,G1494 we knowG1492 that an idolG1497 is nothingG3762 in the world,G2889 and that there is noneG3762 otherG2087 GodG2316 but one.G1520
For thoughG1512 there be that are calledG3004 gods,G2316 whetherG1535 in heavenG3772 orG1535 in earth,G1093 (as there be godsG2316 many,G4183 and lordsG2962 many,G4183)
But to us there is but oneG1520 God,G2316 the Father,G3962 of whomG3739 are allG3956 things, and we in him; and oneG1520 LordG2962 JesusG2424 Christ,G5547 by whomG3739 are allG3956 things, and we by him.
However,G235 there is not in everyG3956 manG3956 that knowledge:G1108 for someG5100 with conscienceG4893 of the idolG1497 to thisG737 hourG737 eatG2068 it as a thing offeredG1494 to an idol;G1494 and their conscienceG4893 beingG5607 weakG772 is defiled.G3435
But meatG1033 commendsG3936 us not to God:G2316 for neither,G3777 ifG1437 we eat,G5315 are we the better;G4052 neither,G3777 ifG1437 we eatG5315 not, are we the worse.G5302
But take heedG991 lestG3381 by anyG3381 meansG4458 thisG3778 libertyG1849 of your'sG5216 becomeG1096 a stumbling blockG4348 to them that are weak.G770
For ifG1437 anyG5100 man seeG1492 you whichG3588 haveG2192 knowledgeG1108 sitG2621 atG2621 meat in the idol'sG1493 temple, shall not the conscienceG4893 of him which is weakG772 be emboldenedG3618 to eatG2068 thoseG3588 things which are offeredG1494 to idols;G1494
And throughG1909 your knowledgeG1108 shall the weakG770 brotherG80 perish,G622 for whomG3739 ChristG5547 died?G599
But when you sinG264 soG3779 againstG1519 the brothers,G80 and woundG5180 their weakG770 conscience,G4893 you sinG264 againstG1519 Christ.G5547
Why,G1355 ifG1487 meatG1033 makeG4624 my brotherG80 to offend,G4624 I will eatG5315 noG3364 fleshG2907 while the worldG165 stands, lestG2443 G3361 I makeG4624 my brotherG80 to offend.G4624
