This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 10:30. Ἐγω, I) This expression has reference to his legitimate power [See 1Co 10:23].-τί βλασφημοῦμαι, why am I evil spoken of) by him, who does not use his liberty, i.e. no man can reprove me (but βλασφημεῖν, to speak calumniously of, is even worse), as if I were acting contrary to my conscience.-ὑπὲρ οὗ, for which) i.e. why am I assailed with reproaches for my thanksgiving?-εὐχαριστῶ, I give thanks) Thanksgiving sanctifies all meat; it denies the authority of idols, and asserts the authority of God.-1Ti 4:3-4; Rom 14:6.
