- And him who is weak in the faith receive ye — not to determinations of reasonings;
- one doth believe that he may eat all things — and he who is weak doth eat herbs;
- let not him who is eating despise him who is not eating: and let not him who is not eating judge him who is eating, for God did receive him.
- Thou — who art thou that art judging another's domestic? to his own master he doth stand or fall;
and he shall be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand.
- One doth judge one day above another, and another doth judge every day [alike];
let each in his own mind be fully assured.
- He who is regarding the day, to the Lord he doth regard [it], and he who is not regarding the day, to the Lord he doth not regard [it].
He who is eating, to the Lord he doth eat, for he doth give thanks to God;
and he who is not eating, to the Lord he doth not eat, and doth give thanks to God.
- For none of us to himself doth live, and none to himself doth die;
- for both, if we may live, to the Lord we live;
if also we may die, to the Lord we die;
both then if we may live, also if we may die, we are the Lord's;
- for because of this Christ both died and rose again, and lived again, that both of dead and of living he may be Lord.
- And thou, why dost thou judge thy brother? or again, thou, why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand at the tribunal of the Christ;
- for it hath been written, `I live! saith the Lord — to Me bow shall every knee, and every tongue shall confess to God;'
- so, then, each of us concerning himself shall give reckoning to God;
- no longer, therefore, may we judge one another, but this judge ye rather, not to put a stumbling-stone before the brother, or an offence.
- I have known, and am persuaded, in the Lord Jesus, that nothing [is] unclean of itself, except to him who is reckoning anything to be unclean — to that one [it is] unclean;
- and if through victuals thy brother is grieved, no more dost thou walk according to love;
do not with thy victuals destroy that one for whom Christ died.
- Let not, then, your good be evil spoken of,
- for the reign of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit;
- for he who in these things is serving the Christ, [is] acceptable to God and approved of men.
- So, then, the things of peace may we pursue, and the things of building up one another;
- for the sake of victuals cast not down the work of God;
all things, indeed, [are] pure, but evil [is] to the man who is eating through stumbling.
- Right [it is] not to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor to [do anything] in which thy brother doth stumble, or is made to fall, or is weak.
- Thou hast faith! to thyself have [it] before God;
happy is he who is not judging himself in what he doth approve,
- and he who is making a difference, if he may eat, hath been condemned, because [it is] not of faith;
and all that [is] not of faith is sin.
