1 Corinthians 8

Now
<1161>
as touching
<4012>
things offered unto idols
<1494>_,
we know
<1492> (5758)
that
<3754>
we all
<3956>
have
<2192> (5719)
knowledge
<1108>_.
Knowledge
<1108>
puffeth up
<5448> (5719)_,
but
<1161>
charity
<26>
edifieth
<3618> (5719)_.
And
<1161>
if any man
<1536>
think
<1380> (5719)
that he knoweth
<1492> (5760)
any thing
<5100>_,
he knoweth
<1097> (5758)
nothing
<3762>
yet
<3764>
as
<2531>
he ought
<1163> (5748)
to know
<1097> (5629)_.
But
<1161>
if any man
<1536>
love
<25> (5719)
God
<2316>_,
the same
<3778>
is known
<1097> (5769)
of
<5259>
him
<846>_.
As concerning
<4012>
therefore
<3767>
the eating
<1035>
of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols
<1494>_,
we know
<1492> (5758)
that
<3754>
an idol
<1497>
[is] nothing
<3762>
in
<1722>
the world
<2889>_,
and
<2532>
that
<3754>
[there is] none
<3762>
other
<2087>
God
<2316>
but
<1508>
one
<1520>_.
For
<1063>
though
<1512> <2532>
there be
<1526> (5748)
that are called
<3004> (5746)
gods
<2316>_,
whether
<1535>
in
<1722>
heaven
<3772>
or
<1535>
in
<1909>
earth
<1093>_,
(as
<5618>
there be
<1526> (5748)
gods
<2316>
many
<4183>_,
and
<2532>
lords
<2962>
many
<4183>,)
But
<235>
to us
<2254>
[there is but] one
<1520>
God
<2316>_,
the Father
<3962>_,
of
<1537>
whom
<3739>
[are] all things
<3956>_,
and
<2532>
we
<2249>
in
<1519>
him
<846>_;
and
<2532>
one
<1520>
Lord
<2962>
Jesus
<2424>
Christ
<5547>_,
by
<1223>
whom
<3739>
[are] all things
<3956>_,
and
<2532>
we
<2249>
by
<1223>
him
<846>_.
{in: or, for}
Howbeit
<235>
[there is] not
<3756>
in
<1722>
every man
<3956>
that knowledge
<1108>_:
for
<1161>
some
<5100>
with conscience
<4893>
of the idol
<1497>
unto
<2193>
this hour
<737>
eat
<2068> (5719)
[it] as
<5613>
a thing offered unto an idol
<1494>_;
and
<2532>
their
<846>
conscience
<4893>
being
<5607> (5752)
weak
<772>
is defiled
<3435> (5743)_.
But
<1161>
meat
<1033>
commendeth
<3936> (5719)
us
<2248>
not
<3756>
to God
<2316>_:
for
<1063>
neither
<3777>_,
if
<1437>
we eat
<5315> (5632)_,
are we the better
<4052> (5719)_;
neither
<3777>_,
if
<3362> (0)
we eat
<5315> (5632)
not
<3362>_,
are we the worse
<5302> (5743)_.
{are we the better: or, have we the more} {are we the worse: or, have we the less}
But
<1161>
take heed
<991> (5720)
lest
<3381>
by any means
<4458>
this
<3778>
liberty
<1849>
of yours
<5216>
become
<1096> (5638)
a stumblingblock
<4348>
to them that are weak
<770> (5723)_.
{liberty: or, power}
For
<1063>
if
<1437>
any man
<5100>
see
<1492> (5632)
thee
<4571>
which
<3588>
hast
<2192> (5723)
knowledge
<1108>
sit at meat
<2621> (5740)
in
<1722>
the idol's temple
<1493>_,
shall
<3618> (0)
not
<3780>
the conscience
<4893>
of him
<846>
which is
<5607> (5752)
weak
<772>
be emboldened
<3618> (5701) <1519>
to eat
<2068> (5721)
those things which are offered to idols
<1494>_;
{emboldened: Gr. edified}
And
<2532>
through
<1909>
thy
<4674>
knowledge
<1108>
shall
<622> (0)
the weak
<770> (5723)
brother
<80>
perish
<622> (5689)_,
for
<1223>
whom
<3739>
Christ
<5547>
died
<599> (5627)_?
But
<1161>
when ye sin
<264> (5723)
so
<3779>
against
<1519>
the brethren
<80>_,
and
<2532>
wound
<5180> (5723)
their
<846>
weak
<770> (5723)
conscience
<4893>_,
ye sin
<264> (5719)
against
<1519>
Christ
<5547>_.
Wherefore
<1355>_,
if
<1487>
meat
<1033>
make
<4624> (0)
my
<3450>
brother
<80>
to offend
<4624> (5719)_,
I will eat
<5315> (5632)
no
<3364>
flesh
<2907>
while the world standeth
<1519> <165>_,
lest
<3363>
I make
<4624> (0)
my
<3450>
brother
<80>
to offend
<4624> (5661)_.
