1 Corinthians 10:6-8 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

And these things that happened are examples for us. They should stop us from wanting evil things as those people did. Do not worship idols, as some of them did. It is written in the Scriptures: “The people sat down to eat and drink. Then they got up and had wild parties.”[a] We should not take part in sexual sin, as some of them did. In one day 23,000 of them died because of their sins.


  1. 10:7 “The people . . . parties.” Quotation from Exodus 32:6.

1 Corinthians 10:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: “The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.”[a] We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died.
