1 Corinthians 8:4  1 Corinthians 9:11

4 Therefore concerning the eating of things asacrificed to idols, we 1know that an bidol is cnothing in the world and that there is no God but done.

5 For even if there are so-called agods, either in heaven or on earth, even as there are many gods and many lords,

6 Yet to 1us there is 2aone God, the 3bFather, 4out from whom are call things, and we are 4unto Him; and 5done Lord, 6Jesus Christ, 4ethrough whom are all things, and we are 4through Him.

7 But athis knowledge is not in all men; but some, being accustomed to the idol until now, beat the food as an cidol sacrifice, and their 1dconscience, being weak, is 2defiled.

8 But afood will not commend us to God; neither if we do not eat are we lacking, nor if we eat do we 1abound.

9 But beware lest somehow this 1right of yours become a astumbling block to the 2bweak ones.

10 For if anyone sees you who have aknowledge reclining at table in an bidol temple, will not his cconscience, if he is weak, be 1emboldened to eat the things dsacrificed to the idols?

11 For the one who is aweak is being 1bdestroyed by your cknowledge, the brother because of whom Christ ddied.

12 And sinning in this way against the brothers and 1wounding their weak aconscience, you sin against Christ.

13 Therefore if food 1astumbles my brother, I shall by no means eat 2meat forever, that I may not 1stumble my brother.


1 1Am I not 2afree? Am I not an 3bapostle? Have I not 4cseen Jesus our Lord? Are you not my 5dwork in the Lord?

2 If to others I am not an apostle, yet surely I am to 1you; for you in the Lord are the 2aseal of my bapostleship.

3 My defense to those who examine me is 1this.

4 1Do we not have a 2right to 3aeat and to drink?

5 Do we not have a right to take along a sister as a wife, aeven as the rest of the apostles and the bbrothers of the Lord and cCephas?

6 Or do only I and aBarnabas not have the bright not to work?

7 What soldier ever aserves by his own wages? Who bplants a cvineyard and does not dpartake of its fruit? Or who shepherds a flock and does not partake of the milk of the flock?

8 Am I speaking these things aaccording to man? Or does the law not also say these things?

9 For in the law of Moses it is written: a“You shall not muzzle the ox 1while it is treading out the grain.” Is it for oxen that God cares?

10 Or does He say it altogether for our sake? Yes, for our sake it was written because the aplowman should plow in hope, and he who threshes, in hope of partaking.

11 If we have sown to you the aspiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap from you the fleshly things?
