The Meaning of 1 Corinthians 10 Explained

1 Corinthians 10

[1] brethren,  I would  not  should be ignorant,  how that  all  fathers  under  the cloud,  and  all  passed  through  the sea;  [2] And  all  baptized  unto  Moses  in  the cloud  and  in  the sea;  [3] And  all  eat  the same  spiritual  meat;  [4] And  all  drink  the same  spiritual  drink:  for  they drank  of  that spiritual  Rock  that followed them:  and  that Rock  Christ.  [5] But  with  many  of them  God  not  well pleased:  for  they were overthrown  in  the wilderness.  [6] Now  were  examples,  to the intent  not  lust after evil  things,  as  they also  lusted.  [7] Neither  be ye  idolaters,  as  were some  of them;  it is written,  The people  sat down  to eat  and  drink,  and  rose up  to play.  [8] Neither  let us commit fornication,  as  some  of them  committed,  and  fell  day  three  and twenty  thousand.  [9] Neither  let us tempt  Christ,  as  some  of them  also  tempted,  and  were destroyed  of  serpents.  [10] Neither  murmur ye,  some  of them  also  murmured,  and  were destroyed  of  the destroyer.  [11] Now  happened  unto them  for ensamples:  and  they are written  for  admonition,  upon  whom  the ends  of the world  are come.  [12] Wherefore  him that thinketh  he standeth  take heed  lest  he fall.  [13] no  temptation  taken  such as is common to man:  but  God  is faithful,  who  not  suffer  to be tempted  above  that  ye are able;  but  with  the temptation  also  make  a way to escape,  may be able  to bear  [14] Wherefore,  dearly beloved,  flee  from  idolatry.  [15] I speak  as  to wise men;  judge  what  I say.  [16] The cup  of blessing  which  we bless,  not  the communion  of the blood  of Christ?  The bread  which  we break,  not  the communion  of the body  of Christ?  [17] For  being many  one  bread,  and one  body:  for  all  partakers  of  that one  bread.  [18] Behold  Israel  after  the flesh:  which eat  of the sacrifices  partakers  of the altar?  [19] What  say I  then?  that  the idol  any thing,  or  that  which is offered in sacrifice to idols  any thing?  [20] But  I say, that  the things which  the Gentiles  sacrifice,  to devils,  and  not  to God:  and  I would  not  should have  fellowship  with devils.  [21] 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.  [22] the Lord  to jealousy?  stronger than  he?  [23] All things  are lawful  but  all things  not  expedient:  all things  are lawful  but  all things  edify  not.  [24] no man  seek  his own,  but  another's  [25] Whatsoever  is sold  in  the shambles,  that eat,  no  question  conscience  sake:  [26] For  the earth  is the Lord's,  and  the fulness  thereof.  [27] of them that believe not  bid  to a feast, and  ye be disposed  to go;  whatsoever  is set before  eat,  no  question  conscience  sake.  [28] But  if  any man  say  offered in sacrifice unto idols,  eat  not  for  his sake  that shewed it,  and  for conscience sake:  for  the earth  is the Lord's,  and  the fulness  thereof:  [29] Conscience,  I say,  not  thine own,  but  of the other:  for  liberty  judged  of  another  man's conscience?  [30] if  by grace  be a partaker,  why  am I evil spoken of  for that  for which  give thanks?  [31] Whether  therefore  ye eat,  or  drink,  or  whatsoever  ye do,  all  to  the glory  of God.  [32] Give  none offence,  neither  to the Jews,  nor  to the Gentiles,  nor  to the church  of God:  [33] Even as  please  all  things, not  seeking  mine own  profit,  but  the profit  of many,  that  they may be saved.
