    King James Bible - 1 Corinthians 8:7

    Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.

    World English Bible

    However, that knowledge isn't in all
    men. But some, with consciousness of the idol until now, eat as of a thing sacrificed to an idol, and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.

    Douay-Rheims - 1 Corinthians 8:7

    But there is not knowledge in every one. For some until this present, with conscience of the idol: eat as a thing sacrificed to an idol, and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    But there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol to this
    hour eat it as a thing offered to an idol; and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.

    VERSE (7) -
    1Co 1:10,11

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:7

    ¶ Mas no en todos hay esta ciencia, porque algunos con conciencia del ídolo hasta ahora, lo comen como sacrificado a ídolos; y su conciencia, siendo flaca, es contaminada.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 8:7

    Verse 7. There is not in every man that
    knowledge] This is spoken in reference to what is said, ver. i5: We know that an idol is nothing in the world; for some with a conscience of the idol, viz. that it is something, eat it-the flesh that was offered to the idol, as a thing thus offered, considering the feast as a sacred banquet, by which they have fellowship with the idol. And their conscience being weak-not properly instructed in Divine things, is defiled-he performs what he does as an act of religious worship, and thus his conscience contracts guilt through this idolatry.

    As in the commencement of Christianity, among the Jews that were converted, there were many found who incorporated the rites of the law with the principles of the Gospel; so, doubtless, among the Gentiles, there were several who did not at once throw aside all their idolatry or idolatrous notions, but preserved some of its more spiritual and imposing parts, and might think it necessary to mingle idolatrous feasts with the rites of Christianity; as the sacrament of the Lord's supper was certainly considered as a feast upon a sacrifice, as I have proved in my Discourse on the Nature and Design of the Eucharist. As the minds of many of these young Gentile converts could not, as yet, have been deeply endued with spiritual knowledge, they might incorporate these feasts, and confound their nature and properties.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. Howbeit, there is not in every man that knowledge , etc.] The apostle is not speaking of Heathens, in whom there was no knowledge of the one true God, the author of all things, and of the one Lord Jesus, the only saviour and Redeemer; but of Christians, in whom there was the knowledge of these things, but not in all of them; the knowledge of this, that an idol was nothing; for though they knew that an idol was not God, and had no true deity in it, nor was it any true representation of God, yet fancied that it had an influence upon food that was offered to it, to defile it, and render it unclean, so that it ought not to be eaten; and since there were such persons that were so ignorant and weak, it became those who had more knowledge to be careful how they laid stumblingblocks in the way of such, to the prejudice of their consciences: that there were such, the apostle affirms, for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour, eat it as a thing offered unto an idol ; that is, there were some persons even at that very time, though they had been so long converted from Heathenism to Christianity, yet had such an opinion of an idol, that they really thought in their own consciences, that there were something in an idol, they could not well tell what, that defiled meats offered to it, and made them unlawful to be eaten; and yet, through the influence of the example of others, were prevailed upon to eat of them, having at the same time a notion of such food, as if it was not common food, but had received some virtue from the idol; and not without some regret, and uneasiness of mind, as being polluted with it. The Alexandrian copy, and some others, read, sunhyeia through custom of the idol; and so the Ethiopic version seems to have read: and the sense is, that some having been formerly accustomed to worship idols, and to eat things offered to them, as having received some virtue from them, still retained an opinion, that there was some difference between such meats and others. And their conscience being weak is defiled ; because such act against the dictates of their own conscience; which, though weak, is binding, and sinned against, defiles, according to the rules given by the apostle, ( Romans 14:14,23).

    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 __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    7. With conscience of the
    idol (th suneidhsei tou eidwlou). The best texts read sunhqeia custom, which occurs only here and John xviii. 39; see note. Lit., with custom of the idol; i.e., as Rev., being used to the idol. Their long habit previous to their conversion made them still regard their offering as made to something really existent, and consequently to feel that it was sinful to eat of meat thus offered.

    Is defiled (molunetai). See on Apoc. xiv. 4.
