New King James VersionAll things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
"helpful" (NKJV) "expedient" (KJV)
Gill comments that "everything is not lawful to be done when the doing of them destroys the peace, comfort, and edification of others; when it stumbles and grieves weak minds, and causes offence to them"; see (1 Corinthians 10:23), so not "expedient" to use this liberty, to grieve a weak brother or to make oneself a "slave to one's appetite".
New King James VersionOr do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.”
