1 Corinthians 10:25 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

The shambles (μακέλλω)

Only here in the New Testament. It is a Latin word, which is not strange in a Roman colony like Corinth. In sacrifices usually only a part of the victim was consumed. The rest was given to the priests or to the poor, or sold again in the market. Any buyer might therefore unknowingly purchase meat offered to idols.

Asking no question

As to whether the meat had been used in idol sacrifice. See on 1 Corinthians 2:14.
