14:1 Now him that is weak in the faith receive, not to [the] determining of questions of reasoning.
14:2 One man is assured that he may eat all things; but the weak eats herbs.
14:3 Let not him that eats make little of him that eats not; and let not him that eats not judge him that eats: for God has received him.
14:4 Who art *thou* that judgest the servant of another? to his own master he stands or falls. And he shall be made to stand; for the Lord is able to make him stand.
14:5 One man esteems day more than day; another esteems every day [alike]. Let each be fully persuaded in his own mind.
14:6 He that regards the day, regards it to [the] Lord. And he that eats, eats to [the] Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he that does not eat, [it is] to [the] Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks.
14:7 For none of us lives to himself, and none dies to himself.
14:8 For both if we should live, [it is] to the Lord we live; and if we should die, [it is] to the Lord we die: both if we should live then, and if we should die, we are the Lord's.
14:9 For to this [end] Christ has died and lived [again], that he might rule over both dead and living.
14:10 But thou, why judgest thou thy brother? or again, thou, why dost thou make little of thy brother? for we shall all be placed before the judgment-seat of God.
14:11 For it is written, *I* live, saith [the] Lord, that to me shall bow every knee, and every tongue shall confess to God.
14:12 So then each of us shall give an account concerning himself to God.
14:13 Let us no longer therefore judge one another; but judge ye this rather, not to put a stumbling-block or a fall-trap before his brother.
14:14 I know, and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean of itself; except to him who reckons anything to be unclean, to that man [it is] unclean.
14:15 For if on account of meat thy brother is grieved, thou walkest no longer according to love. Destroy not him with thy meat for whom Christ has died.
14:16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of;
14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in [the] Holy Spirit.
14:18 For he that in this serves the Christ [is] acceptable to God and approved of men.
14:19 So then let us pursue the things which tend to peace, and things whereby one shall build up another.
14:20 For the sake of meat do not destroy the work of God. All things indeed [are] pure; but [it is] evil to that man who eats while stumbling [in doing so].
14:21 [It is] right not to eat meat, nor drink wine, nor [do anything] in which thy brother stumbles, or is offended, or is weak.
14:22 Hast *thou* faith? have [it] to thyself before God. Blessed [is] he who does not judge himself in what he allows.
14:23 But he that doubts, if he eat, is condemned; because [it is] not of faith; but whatever [is] not of faith is sin.
