1 Corinthians 10:1-18 Darby’s Translation

Warning against Idolatry

10 1  For I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 2  and all were baptised unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 3  and all ate the same spiritual food, 4  and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they drank of a spiritual rock which followed [them]: (now the rock was the Christ;) 5  yet God was not pleased with the most of them, for they were strewed in the desert.

6  But these things happened [as] types of us, that we should not be lusters after evil things, as they also lusted. 7  Neither be ye idolaters, as some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play. 8  Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed fornication, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. 9  Neither let us tempt the Christ, as some of them tempted, and perished by serpents. 10  Neither murmur ye, as some of them murmured, and perished by the destroyer. 11  Now all these things happened to them [as] types, and have been written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages are come. 12  So that let him that thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. 13  No temptation has taken you but such as is according to man's nature; and God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above what ye are able [to bear], but will with the temptation make the issue also, so that [ye] should be able to bear [it]. 14  Wherefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.

15  I speak as to intelligent [persons]: do ye judge what I say. 16  The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not [the] communion of the blood of the Christ? The bread which we break, is it not [the] communion of the body of the Christ? 17  Because we, [being] many, are one loaf, one body; for we all partake of that one loaf. 18  See Israel according to flesh: are not they who eat the sacrifices in communion with the altar?
