Lessons From Israel's Idolatry
Today's Passage: 1 Corinthians 10: 1-11
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
1. I don't want you to forget, dear brothers and sisters,
about our ancestors in the wilderness long ago.
All of them are guided by a cloud that moved ahead of them,
and all of them walked through the sea on dry ground.
2. In the cloud and in the sea,
all of them were baptized as followers of Moses.
3. All of them ate the same spiritual food,
4. and all of them drank the same spiritual water.
For they drank from the spiritual rock that traveled with them,
and that rock was Christ.
5. Yet God was not pleased with most of them,
and their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.
6. These things happened as a warning to us,
so that we would not crave evil things as they did,
7. or worship idols as some of them did.
As the Scriptures say,
"The people celebrated with feasting
and drinking and they indulged in pagan revelry."
8. And we must not engage in sexual immorality
as some of them did,
causing 23,000 of them to die in one day.
9. Nor should we put Christ to the test,
as some of them did and died from snake bites.
10. And don't grumble as some of them did,
and then were destroyed by the angel of death.
11. These things happened to them as examples for us.
They were written down to warn us who
live at the end of the age.
12. If you think you are standing strong,
be careful not to fall.
13. The temptations in your life
are no different from what others experience.
And God is faithful,
He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand.
When you are tempted,
he will show you a way out so you can endure.
1 Corinthians 10:1-13 NLT
