- Now him that is weak in the faith receive, not to [the] determining of questions of reasoning.
- One man is assured that he may eat all things;
but the weak eats herbs.
- Let not him that eats make little of him that eats not;
and let not him that eats not judge him that eats: for God has received him.
- Who art *thou* that judgest the servant of another?
to his own master he stands or falls.
And he shall be made to stand;
for the Lord is able to make him stand.
- One man esteems day more than day;
another esteems every day [alike].
Let each be fully persuaded in his own mind.
- He that regards the day, regards it to [the] Lord.
And he that eats, eats to [the] Lord, for he gives God thanks;
and he that does not eat, [it is] to [the] Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks.
- For none of us lives to himself, and none dies to himself.
- For both if we should live, [it is] to the Lord we live;
and if we should die, [it is] to the Lord we die: both if we should live then, and if we should die, we are the Lord's.
- For to this [end] Christ has died and lived [again], that he might rule over both dead and living.
- But thou, why judgest thou thy brother?
or again, thou, why dost thou make little of thy brother?
for we shall all be placed before the judgment-seat of God.
- For it is written, *I* live, saith [the] Lord, that to me shall bow every knee, and every tongue shall confess to God.
- So then each of us shall give an account concerning himself to God.
- Let us no longer therefore judge one another;
but judge ye this rather, not to put a stumbling-block or a fall-trap before his brother.
- I know, and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean of itself;
except to him who reckons anything to be unclean, to that man [it is] unclean.
- For if on account of meat thy brother is grieved, thou walkest no longer according to love.
Destroy not him with thy meat for whom Christ has died.
- Let not then your good be evil spoken of;
- for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in [the] Holy Spirit.
- For he that in this serves the Christ [is] acceptable to God and approved of men.
- So then let us pursue the things which tend to peace, and things whereby one shall build up another.
- For the sake of meat do not destroy the work of God.
All things indeed [are] pure;
but [it is] evil to that man who eats while stumbling [in doing so].
- [It is] right not to eat meat, nor drink wine, nor [do anything] in which thy brother stumbles, or is offended, or is weak.
- Hast *thou* faith?
have [it] to thyself before God.
Blessed [is] he who does not judge himself in what he allows.
- But he that doubts, if he eat, is condemned;
because [it is] not of faith;
but whatever [is] not of faith is sin.
