    King James Bible - 1 Corinthians 8:10

    For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;

    World English Bible

    For if a man sees you who have knowledge sitting in an idol's temple, won't his conscience, if he is weak, be emboldened to eat things sacrificed to idols?

    Douay-Rheims - 1 Corinthians 8:10

    For if a man see him that hath knowledge sit at
    meat in the idol's temple, shall not his conscience, being weak, be emboldened to eat those things which are sacrificed to idols ?

    Webster's Bible Translation

    For if any man shall see thee, who hast knowledge, sit eating in the idol's temple, will not the conscience of him who is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;

    VERSE (10) -
    :1,2

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:10

    Porque si te ve alguno, a ti que tienes esta ciencia, sentado a la mesa en el lugar de los ídolos, ¿la conciencia de aquel que es dbil, no ser llevada a comer de lo sacrificado a los ídolos?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 8:10

    Verse 10. If any man see thee which hast
    knowledge] Of the true God, and who art reputed for thy skill in Divine things.

    Sit at meat in the idol's temple] Is it not strange that any professing the knowledge of the true God should even enter one of those temples? And is it not more surprising that any Christian should be found to feast there? But by all this we may see that the boasted knowledge of the Corinthians had very little depth in things purely spiritual.

    There are many curious thin-spun theories in the rabbinical writings concerning entering idol temples, and eating there, and even worshipping there, providing the mind be towards the true God. Dr. Lightfoot produces several quotations to prove this. Perhaps the man of knowledge mentioned by the apostle was one of those who, possessing a convenient conscience, could accommodate himself to all circumstances; be a heathen without and a Christian within, and vice versa, as circumstances might require.

    Be emboldened to eat] oikodomhqhsetai, Be built up-be confirmed and established in that opinion which before he doubtingly held, that on seeing YOU eat he may be led to think there is no harm in feasting in an idol temple, nor in eating things offered to idols.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. For if any man see thee which hast knowledge , etc.] That is, not any person whatever; not one that has equal knowledge, and can with a good conscience take the same liberty; but one that is weak in the faith, that has not such a clear sight of the doctrine of Christian liberty: if such an one should observe one that is famous for his superior abilities, learning, and knowledge, sit at meat in the idols temple ; or at table, or at a feast, where, it seem, after the sacrifice was over, a feast was made of what was left, and friends were invited to partake of it; and some such there were in this church, who to show their Christian liberty, and their knowledge of it, would go and sit down at these feasts publicly, looking upon such meats as having nothing different from common food, or what they bought in the markets, or brought up as their own: shall not the conscience of him that is weak ; in knowledge, who is not clearly instructed in the doctrine of Christian liberty, but has some doubts upon his mind whether it is lawful to eat such meats, imagining them to be polluted by the idol: be emboldened; Greek for edified; that is, induced by such an example, and confirmed by such an instance with boldness, and without fear, to eat those things which are offered to idols, contrary to his light, and knowledge, and conscience; and so upon a reflection on what he has done, wound his weak conscience, destroy his peace, and distress his soul. This the apostle proposes to the consideration of these men of knowledge and liberty, as what might be the case, and which they could not well deny, to dissuade them from the use of their liberty, in all places and times, and under all circumstances; all which ought to be seriously weighed and attended to in this business.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-13 - Eating one
    kind of food, and abstaining from another, have nothing in them to recommend a person to God. But the apostle cautions agains putting a stumbling-block in the way of the weak; lest they be mad bold to eat what was offered to the idol, not as common food, but as sacrifice, and thereby be guilty of idolatry. He who has the Spirit of Christ in him, will love those whom Christ loved so as to die for them Injuries done to Christians, are done to Christ; but most of all, the entangling them in guilt: wounding their consciences, is wounding him We should be very tender of doing any thing that may occasion stumblin to others, though it may be innocent in itself. And if we must no endanger other men's souls, how much should we take care not to destro our own! Let Christians beware of approaching the brink of evil, or the appearance of it, though many do this in public matters, for whic perhaps they plead plausibly. Men cannot thus sin against their brethren, without offending Christ, and endangering their own souls __________________________________________________________________

    10.
    Idol's temple (eidwleiw). Only here in the New Testament. See on Apoc. ii. 14.

    Be emboldened (oikodomhqhsetai). Lit., be built up. The A.V. misses the irony of the expression. His apparent advance is really detrimental. Calvin remarks: "a ruinous upbuilding."
