From Textus Receptus

  • 1 Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things.
  • 2 Because, one believes he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables.
  • 3 Let not him who eats despise him who does not eat, and let not him who does not eat judge him who eats; because God has received him.
  • 4 Who are you to judge another’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be able to stand, because God is able to make him stand.
  • 5 One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind.
  • 6 He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, because he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks.
  • 7 Because none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself.
  • 8 Because, if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.
  • 9 Because, for this Christ both died and rose and revived, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living.
  • 10 But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? Because we will all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
  • 11 Because, it is written: “As I live, says the LORD, every knee will bow to Me, and every tongue will confess to God.”
  • 12 So then each of us will give account of himself to God.
  • 13 Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a reason to fall in his brother’s way.
  • 14 I know and am convinced by the Lord Jesus that there is nothing unclean of itself; but to him who considers anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
  • 15 But if your brother is grieved because of your food, you are no longer walking in love. Do not destroy with your food the one who Christ died for.
  • 16 Therefore do not let your good be spoken of as evil;
  • 17 because, the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
  • 18 Because, he who serves Christ in these things is acceptable to God and approved by men.
  • 19 Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another.
  • 20 Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All things indeed are pure, but it is evil for the man who eats with offense.
  • 21 It is good neither to eat meat nor drink grape juice nor do anything by which your brother stumbles or is offended or is made weak.
  • 22 Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in those things which he approves.
  • 23 But he who doubts is damned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; because whatever is not from faith is sin.
