6 Now these things happened as aexamples for us, so that we would not crave evil things as bthey also craved.
7 Do not be aidolaters, as some of them were; as it is written, “bThe people sat down to eat and drink, and stood up to cplay.”
8 Nor let us act immorally, as asome of them 1did, and btwenty-three thousand fell in one day.
9 Nor let us try the Lord, as asome of them 1did, and were destroyed by the serpents.
10 Nor agrumble, as some of them 1did, and bwere destroyed by the cdestroyer.
11 Now these things happened to them as an aexample, and bthey were written for our instruction, upon whom cthe ends of the ages have come.
12 Therefore let him who athinks he stands take heed that he does not fall.
13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and aGod is faithful, who will not allow you to be btempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.
