    King James Bible - 1 Corinthians 8:8

    But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.

    World English Bible

    But
    food will not commend us to God. For neither, if we don't eat, are we the worse; nor, if we eat, are we the better.

    Douay-Rheims - 1 Corinthians 8:8

    But
    meat doth not commend us to God. For neither, if we eat, shall we have the more; nor, if we eat not, shall we have the less.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    But
    food commendeth us not to God: for neither if we eat, are we the better; neither if we eat not, are we the worse.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:8

    La vianda no nos hace ms aceptos a Dios; ni porque comamos, seremos ms ricos; ni porque no comamos, seremos ms pobres.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 8:8

    Verse 8.
    Meat commendeth us not to God] No such feasts as these can be a recommendation of our souls or persons to the Supreme Being. As to the thing, considered in itself, the eating gives us no spiritual advantage; and the eating not is no spiritual loss.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. But
    meat commendeth us not to God , etc.] These words are said by the apostle, either as expressing the argument of such as had knowledge in favour of themselves, that what they did was a thing indifferent, by which they were made neither better nor worse; nor did they look upon it as meritorious, or expect any favour from God on account of it, and therefore were not to be blamed for using their liberty in the manner they did: or else they are spoken by him as his own sense: and the meaning is, that eating of meat, any sort of meat, and so that which is offered to idols, or abstinence from it, neither one nor the other recommends any to the love and favour of God; abrqm al , does not bring near, or give access to God, as the Syriac version renders the phrase; does not ingratiate any into his affectionate regards, or make them acceptable unto him: for neither if we eat are we the better ; or abound, not in earthly but spiritual things, in the graces of the Spirit, and particularly in the esteem and good will of God, upon which such an action can have no influence: neither if we eat not are we the worse ; or are deficient; meaning not in temporal things, but, as before, in spiritual; true grace and piety are not a whit the less; nor are such persons less in the love and favour of God, which is not to be known and judged of by any such action, or the omission of it.

    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 __________________________________________________________________
