Webster's Bible Translation
Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they who eat of the sacrifices, partakers of the altar?
Weymouth New Testament
Look at the Israelites--the nation and their ritual. Are not those who eat the sacrifices joint-partakers in the altar?
1 Corinthians 10:18 Parallel
CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
Showing that partaking of the idol-feasts is idolatry, by the analogy of the Israelite who, by partaking of the sacrifices puts himself in communion with Jehovah's altar.
Partakers of the altar (κοινωνοὶ τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου)
An awkward phrase. Rev., better, bringing out the force of κοινωνοὶ communers: have not they - communion with the altar? The Israelite who partook of the sacrifices (Leviticus 8:31) united himself with the altar of God. Paul says with the altar rather than with God, in order to emphasize the communion through the specific act of worship or sacrifice; since, in a larger sense, Israel after the flesh, Israel regarded as a nation, was, in virtue of that fact, in fellowship with God, apart from his partaking of the sacrifices. Possibly, also, to suggest the external character of the Jewish worship in contrast with the spiritual worship of Christians. Philo calls the Jewish priest κοινωνὸς τοῦ βώμου partaker of the altar.
