1 Corinthians 10:9-11 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Nor should we ever provoke the Lord,[a] as some of them did by putting him to outrageous tests that resulted in their death from snakebites day after day.[b] 10 And we must not embrace their ways by complaining—grumbling with discontent, as many of them did,[c] and were killed by the destroyer![d]

11 All the tests they endured on their way through the wilderness are a symbolic picture, an example that provides us with a warning so that we can learn through what they experienced. For we live in a time when the purpose of all the ages past is now completing its goal within us.[e]


  1. 1 Corinthians 10:9 Some manuscripts have “Christ.”
  2. 1 Corinthians 10:9 See Num. 21:5-9.
  3. 1 Corinthians 10:10 In the Pentateuch there are at least sixteen occasions of the people of Israel murmuring. Believers today have even more spiritual blessings than Israel experienced in the wilderness, which would make our complaining even more odious.
  4. 1 Corinthians 10:10 Or “the destroying angel.”
  5. 1 Corinthians 10:11 As translated from the Aramaic. The Greek is “The end of the ages has arrived upon us.”
