1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the a, and all passed through the b;
2 And were all a unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
3 And did all eat the same spiritual a;
4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that a was Christ.
5 But with many of them a was not well b: for they were c in the d.
6 Now these things were our a, to the intent we should not b evil things, as they also lusted.
7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The a sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
8 Neither let us commit a, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
9 Neither let us a Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
10 Neither a ye, as some of them also murmured, and were b of the destroyer.
11 Now all these things happened unto them for a: b they are c for our d, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he a take heed lest he b.
13 There hath no temptation a you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be b above that ye are able; but will with the c also make a way to d, that ye may be able to e it.
14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from a.
15 I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.
16 The a of b which we bless, is it not the c of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?
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 a of the altar?
19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to a is any thing?
20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they a to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
21 Ye cannot drink the a 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 a? are we stronger than he?
23 a things are lawful for me, but all things are not b: all things are lawful for me, but all things c not.
24 Let no man seek his a, but every man another’s b.
25 Whatsoever is sold in the a, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake:
26 For the a is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof.
27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a a, 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 a?
30 For if I a 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, a all to the glory of God.
32 Give none a, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:
33 Even as I please all men in all things, not a mine own profit, but the b of many, that they may be c.
