Now these things happened as (A)examples for us, so that we would not crave evil things as (B)they also craved. Do not be (C)idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written, “(D)The people sat down to eat and drink, and stood up to (E)play.” Nor let us act immorally, as (F)some of them [a]did, and (G)twenty-three thousand fell in one day. Nor let us try the Lord, as (H)some of them [b]did, and were destroyed by the serpents. 10 Nor (I)grumble, as some of them [c]did, and (J)were destroyed by the (K)destroyer. 11 Now these things happened to them as an (L)example, and (M)they were written for our instruction, upon whom (N)the ends of the ages have come. 12 Therefore let him who (O)thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. 13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and (P)God is faithful, who will not allow you to be (Q)tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.
