Therefore concerning the eating of idol sacrifices, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no God but one. [a] For even if there are so-called “gods,” whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”),

    from whom are all things,
and we exist for Him;
and one Lord, Yeshua the Messiah,
    through whom are all things,
    and we exist through Him.
