1 Corinthians 10:23

English Standard Version

23 “All things are lawful,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful,” but not all things build up. (1Co6:12; 1Co8:9)

New International Version

23 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.

New Int. Readers Version

23 You say, “Everything is permitted.” But not everything is good for us. Again you say, “Everything is permitted.” But not everything builds us up.

King James Version

23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
