1Assist him who is weak in HaEmunah. And do not waver in your reasoning. 2For one believes that he may eat all things; another who is weak eats vegetables. 3Let not him who eats despise him who eats not; and let not him who eats not judge him who eats; for Elohim has received him also. 4Who are you to judge another man’s servant? For if he is a success, he is a success to his master; and if he is a failure, he is a failure to his master. As for his success, he will succeed, for it is in the power of his Adon to make him succeed. 5One person discriminates between days, and another considers all days alike. Let every man be sure in his own mind. 6He who is mindful concerning a day’s duty is considerate of his Adon; and everyone who is not mindful concerning a day’s duty is inconsiderate of his Adon. And he who eats, eats to his Adon and gives thanks to Elohim; and he who does not eat to his Adon, he eats not and gives thanks to Elohim. 7For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. 8For whether we live, we live to Adoneinu; and whether we die, we die to Adoneinu; whether we live therefore, or die, we belong to Adoneinu. 9For to this end even Mashi’akh both died and came back to life, and rose to be יהוה both to the dead and the living. 10Why, then, do you judge your brother, or why do you despise your brother? For we must all stand before the judgment seat of Mashi’akh. 11For it is written, “As I live, says יהוה , every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess me.” 12So then every one of us shall answer for himself to Elohim. 13Let us not therefore judge one another anymore; but rather, be mindful of this, that you should never place a stumbling-block in the way of your brother. 14For I know and have confidence in יהוה Yeshua, that nothing defiled comes from Him; but to him who thinks a thing is what is unclean, to him only is it unclean. 15But now if you have caused your brother to grieve on account of food then you are not living in harmony. Do not make food a cause to destroy a man for whose sake Mashi’akh died. 16Let not our blessings be a reproach to any one; 17for Malkhut HaElohim is not food and drink, but tzedaka and shalom and simkha in The Ru’akh HaKodesh. 18For he who serves Mashi’akh in these things is acceptable to Elohim and is approved by men. 19Now let us strive after shalom, and help one another. 20And let us not, because of food, destroy the work of Elohim. All things indeed are pure; but it is wrong for the man who eats with offense. 21It is better that we neither eat meat nor drink wine nor do any other thing whereby we cause our brother to stumble. 22You who have a certain belief, keep it to yourself, in the presence of Elohim. Blessed is he who does not condemn himself by doing those things which he has selected. 23For he who is doubtful and eats, violates his beliefs; for whatever is not of absolute trust is sin.
