1 Corinthians 8:11 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Shall the weak brother perish (ἀπόλλυται ὁ ἀσθενῶν)

The participle "he that is being weak" indicates a continuance of the weakness, and the present tense, is perishing, implies that the process of moral undermining is in progress through the habitual indulgence of the better informed Christian. Rev., he that is weak perisheth.
