Christ is the God of Israel and the spiritual Rock that guided them—Ancient Israel rebelled against Christ—Paul contrasts true and false sacraments.
2 And were all abaptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
3 And did all eat the same spiritual ameat;
4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that aRock was Christ.
7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The apeople sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
8 Neither let us commit afornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
9 Neither let us atempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
13 There hath no temptation ataken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be btempted above that ye are able; but will with the ctemptation also make a way to descape, that ye may be able to ebear it.
14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from aidolatry.
15 I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.
17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.
18 Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices apartakers of the altar?
19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to aidols is any thing?
20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they asacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
21 Ye cannot drink the acup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
22 Do we provoke the Lord to ajealousy? are we stronger than he?
25 Whatsoever is sold in the ashambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake:
26 For the aearth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof.
27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a afeast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.
28 But if any man say unto you, This is 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 why is my liberty judged of another man’s aconscience?
30 For if I aby grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks?
31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, ado all to the glory of God.
32 Give none aoffence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:
