1 Corinthians 10:6-8 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)

This teaches us not to want wrong things as they did.

Do not worship idols, as some of them did. The holy writings say, `The people sat down to eat and drink. Then they got up and danced.'

We must not use sex the wrong way as some of them did. Twenty-three thousand people died in one day!

1 Corinthians 10:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: “The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.”[a] We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died.
