    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:9

    Pero mirad que esta libertad vuestra no sea tropezadero a los que son dbiles.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 8:9

    Verse 9. But take heed] Lest by frequenting such
    feasts and eating things offered to idols, under the conviction that an idol is nothing, and that you may eat those things innocently, this liberty of yours should become a means of grievously offending a weak brother who has not your knowledge, or inducing one who respects you for your superior knowledge to partake of these things with the conscience, the persuasion and belief, that an idol is something, and to conclude, that as you partake of such things, so he may also, and with safety. He is not possessed of your superior information on this point, and he eats to the idol what you take as a common meal.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. But take heed lest by any means , etc.] This is either a reply to the instance of such as argued in favour of eating things offered to
    idols; or a limitation and explanation of the apostles own concession, that it made a man, with respect to the favour of God, neither better nor worse: yet care should be taken, lest this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak ; he owns they had a liberty, or a right, or power, as the word may be rendered, of eating, or not eating, as they pleased; but then they ought to be cautious, lest they should be the means of offending, or causing to offend, such who were weak in the faith, and had not that knowledge of Christian liberty they had: not the use of their power and liberty is here denied, but the abuse of it is guarded against; for though the action itself was indifferent, yet as it might be used, it might be sinful, being attended with very bad consequences, such as hereafter mentioned.

    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 __________________________________________________________________
