1 Corinthians 10:9 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Let us tempt Christ (ἐκπειράζωμεν τὸν Χριστόν)

The compound word is very significant, "to tempt out" (ἐκ); tempt thoroughly; try to the utmost. It occurs in three other places: Matthew 4:7; Luke 4:12; Luke 10:25; and, in every case, is used of tempting or testing Christ. Compare Psalm 77:18 (Sept.). For Christ read Κύριον the Lord.
