So this weak brother or sister, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your knowledge.
King James Bible
And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?
American Standard Version
For through thy knowledge he that is weak perisheth, the brother for whose sake Christ died.
Young's Literal Translation
and the brother who is infirm shall perish by thy knowledge, because of whom Christ died?
1 Corinthians 8:11 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Shall the weak brother perish - Being first taught by thy conduct that there was no harm in thus eating, he grieves the Spirit of God; becomes again darkened and hardened; and, sliding back into idolatry, dies in it, and so finally perishes.
For whom Christ died? - So we learn that a man may perish for whom Christ died: this admits of no quibble. If a man for whom Christ died, apostatizing from Christianity, (for he is called a brother though weak), return again to and die in idolatry, cannot go to heaven; then a man for whom Christ died may perish everlastingly. And if it were possible for a believer, whether strong or weak, to retrace his steps back to idolatry and die in it, surely it is possible for a man, who had escaped the pollutions that are in the world, to return to it, live and die in its spirit, and perish everlastingly also. Let him that readeth understand.
