    King James Bible - 1 Corinthians 6:13

    Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

    World English Bible

    "Foods for the
    belly, and the belly for foods," but God will bring to nothing both it and them. But the body is not for sexual immorality, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

    Douay-Rheims - 1 Corinthians 6:13

    Meat for the belly, and the belly for the meats; but God shall destroy both it and them: but the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Meats for the
    belly, and the belly for meats: but God will destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for lewdness, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

    Mt 15:17,20 Mr 7:19 Ro 14:17

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:13

    Las viandas son para el vientre, y el vientre para las viandas; sin embargo a l y a ellas deshar Dios. Mas el cuerpo no es para la fornicacin, sino para el Seor; y el Seor para el cuerpo;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 6:13

    Verse 13. Meats for the
    belly] I suppose that koilia means the animal appetite, or propensity to food, &c., and we may conceive the apostle to reason thus: I acknowledge that God has provided different kinds of aliments for the appetite of man, and among others those which are generally offered to idols; and he has adapted the appetite to these aliments, and the aliments to the appetite: but God shall destroy both it and them; none of these is eternal; all these lower appetites and sensations will be destroyed by death, and have no existence in the resurrection body; and the earth and its productions shall be burnt up.

    Now the body is not for fornication] Though God made an appetite for food, and provided food for that appetite, yet he has not made the body for any uncleanness, nor indulgence in sensuality; but he has made it for Christ; and Christ was provided to be a sacrifice for this body as well as for the soul, by taking our nature upon him; so that now, as human beings, we have an intimate relationship to the Lord; and our bodies are made not only for his service, but to be his temples.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats , etc.] All sort of food is appointed and provided to satisfy the appetite and stomach, to fill the belly, and nourish the body; and the belly, and all the parts through which the food passes, are purposely formed by God for the reception and digestion of the food, for its secretion, chylification, and nutrition by it, and the ejection of the excermentitious parts. But God shall destroy both it and them : at death, and in the grave, when the one shall be consumed, and the other be needless and useless; and though that part of the body, with the rest, will be raised at the last day, since the body will be raised perfect, consisting of all its parts; yet there will be no appetite, no desire in the stomach after meats, no need of them to fill the belly, and so no use of these parts for such purposes as they now are; for the children of the resurrection will be like the angels, and stand in no need of eating and drinking. Now the body is not for fornication . Though meats are appointed for the belly, and the belly for them, and this and the other sort of meats are of an indifferent kind, which may or may not be used; yet this cannot be said of fornication, which the Corinthians, and other Gentiles, took to be equally indifferent as meats; but the apostle shows there is not the same reason for the one as the other. The body was not originally made and appointed for fornication; this is quite besides the will of God, who has provided marriage as a remedy against it: but for the Lord ; for Jesus Christ, for whom a body was prepared in Gods council and covenant; and for the sake of which, and after the exemplar of it in Gods eternal mind, the body of man was first formed; and which was also made, as after the image, so for the glory of Christ, to be a member of his, to be redeemed by him, and to serve him in, in righteousness and holiness, and at last to be raised by him, and made like to his glorious body at the great day. And the Lord for the body ; he was preordained in the council of God, and provided in the covenant of grace, and sent in the fulness of time to be a Redeemer and Saviour of the body, as well as the soul; to be a sanctifier of it, and the raiser of it up from the dead in the resurrection; all which are so many arguments to dissuade from the sin of fornication.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-20 - Some among the Corinthians seem to have been ready to say, All thing are
    lawful for me. This dangerous conceit St. Paul opposes. There is liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, in which we must stand fast But surely a Christian would never put himself into the power of an bodily appetite. The body is for the Lord; is to be an instrument of righteousness to holiness, therefore is never to be made an instrumen of sin. It is an honour to the body, that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead; and it will be an honour to our bodies, that they will be raised. The hope of a resurrection to glory, should keep Christian from dishonouring their bodies by fleshly lusts. And if the soul be united to Christ by faith, the whole man is become a member of his spiritual body. Other vices may be conquered in fight; that her cautioned against, only by flight. And vast multitudes are cut off by this vice in its various forms and consequences. Its effects fall no only directly upon the body, but often upon the mind. Our bodies have been redeemed from deserved condemnation and hopeless slavery by the atoning sacrifice of Christ. We are to be clean, as vessels fitted for our Master's use. Being united to Christ as one spirit, and bought with a price of unspeakable value, the believer should consider himself a wholly the Lord's, by the strongest ties. May we make it our business to the latest day and hour of our lives, to glorify God with ou bodies, and with our spirits which are his __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    13. Meats for the
    belly, etc. Paul is arguing against fornication. His argument is that there is a law of adaptation running through nature, illustrated by the mutual adaptation of food and the digestive organs; but this law is violated by the prostitution of the body to fornication, for which, in God's order, it was not adapted.

    Shall destroy (katarghsei). Rev., better, shall bring to nought. See on Rom. iii. 3. The mutual physical adaptation is only temporary, as the body and its nourishment are alike perishable.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:13 {But God shall bring to nought both it and them} (ho de qeos kai tauten kai tauta katargesei). Another proverb about the adaptation of the belly (koilia) and food (brwmata, not just flesh), which had apparently been used by some in Corinth to justify sexual license (fornication and adultery). These Gentiles mixed up matters not alike at all (questions of food and sensuality). " We have traces of this gross moral confusion in the circumstances which dictated the Apostolic Letter (#Ac 15:23-29), where things wholly diverse are combined, as directions about meats to be avoided and a prohibition of fornication" (Lightfoot). Both the belly (tauten) and the foods (tauta) God will bring to an end by death and change. {But the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body} (to de swma ou tei porneiai alla twi kuriwi, kai ho kurios twi swmati). Paul here boldly shows the fallacy in the parallel about appetite of the belly for food. The human body has a higher mission than the mere gratification of sensual appetite. Sex is of God for the propagation of the race, not for prostitution. Paul had already stated that God dwells in us as the sanctuary of the Holy Spirit (#3:16f.). this higher function of the body he here puts forward against the debased Greek philosophy of the time which ignored completely Paul's idea, "the body for the Lord and the Lord for the body" (dative of personal interest in both cases). "The Lord Jesus and porneia contested for the bodies of Christian men; loyal to him they must renounce _that_, yielding to _that_ they renounce him" (Findlay).
