1 Corinthians 10:23-25 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Live to Glorify God

23 “Everything is lawful,” but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is lawful,”[a] but not everything builds others up.[b] 24 Do not seek your own good, but the good of the other person. 25 Eat anything that is sold in the marketplace without questions of conscience,


  1. 1 Corinthians 10:23 snEverything is lawful.” Here again Paul cites certain slogans the Corinthians used to justify their behavior (cf. 6:12-13; 7:1; 8:1, 4). Paul agrees with the slogans in part, but corrects them to show how the Corinthians have misused these ideas.
  2. 1 Corinthians 10:23 tn Grk “builds up.” The object “others” is not expressed but is implied, as v. 24 shows. Paul picks up a theme he introduced at the start of this section of the letter (8:1).
