You have been put to no test but such as is common to man: and God is true, who will not let any test come on you which you are not able to undergo; but he will make with the test a way out of it, so that you may be able to go through it.

- World English Bible
Temptacioun take `not you, but mannus temptacioun; for God is trewe, which schal not suffre you to be temptid aboue that that ye moun; but he schal make with temptacioun also purueyaunce, that ye moun suffre.
- Wycliffe Bible
No temptation hath taken you -- except human; and God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above what ye are able, but He will make, with the temptation, also the outlet, for your being able to bear [it].
- Youngs Literal Bible
10:13 Common to man - Or, as the Greek word imports, proportioned to human strength. God is faithful - In giving the help which he hath promised. And he will with the temptation - Provide for your deliverance.
1Co 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man. Perhaps the Corinthians thought their temptations were usually severe, but these were only what human nature is exposed to. But God [is] faithful. Will keep every promise, and hence will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able. Will give them strength and deliverance in every temptation if they trust in him. None who devoutly follow Christ, who pray constantly for strength, and trust God, will fall.

To say that God places burdens upon us is not what this verse is teaching. It is saying that when we are facing temptations and trails God has provided a way of escape from them. It is up to us to find that way of escape. We all have different temptations in life. Only you know what your temptations are and only YOU can find your way of escape from them. Along with this verse I would suggest that you also study: Rom. 1:24 I Thess. 3:5 2 Tim. 3:6.

The scriptures do not teach that God tempts us. Let God be true but every man a liar. This scripture taken in context means if we are enticed by our own desires, and are led by them into sin, God will provide a way out for us. He does not want us to sin, but reassures us that when we do, there is forgiveness for us through his Son our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.. We have died to sin, how can we live in it any longer?
Derick Perry's comment on 2015-03-08 15:23:34:
There 's two words that jump out at me in this scripture common of course and with Jesus was tempted of Satan 40 days and resisted he overcame through prayer he knee he was greater then Satan just like Jesus we are tempted daily and its important to remember we do not have to fail the way of escape is already there it said with the temptation so I challenge you to look for the way of escape sometimes its just simply to pray hard and effectually as Jes us did and in Jesus name the devil must flee...

Sin is very enjoyable that is the reason we sin! We like it! But, when we get tired of it there is a way to escape,look for the exit. The bible is right.

I believe there is a significant difference in how God understands us and how we understand ourselves. The association of thinking we fully understand what we can or cannot bear as to temptation, personal tragedy or any other aspect of our lives that seems impossible to deal with, may be directly in contrast to how God sees it such as noted in Isaiah 55 as to his thoughts and ours . As we become more intimate with God we begin to better understand ourselves and where we stand in Christ.

To Tina, yes God will put more on you than you can bare, if you are not a Christian. If you are not a Christian, then it is entirely possible to have more than you can bare to be put on you. Even then God is waiting on the side lines for you to accept Jesus as your Savior, as way of escape.

what a reviving scripture! I think God is the only way out of any given terror.
Ronnie's comment on 2014-05-23 04:45:02:
No temptation or sin, can we always find a way of ESCAPE! I find I cant "always " find a way of escape, why is this? Would this be a normal weakness, as we all are sinners and fall short of the glory of God. Taking the scripture literally we could all be sin free! Blessings!!!

what a divine revelation
Winnie Ansay's comment on 2014-01-02 09:36:33:
I interpret temptation also as trial or affliction.
It has become a life verse to me due to the many physical limitations I have. When God has closed a door he helps find the window of escape. It is a constant test that helps me to do good and be compassionate to others.

Jehovah God never forsakes us to the point of permitting us to come into situations that make it humanly impossible to do his will. By strenthening us to resist temptation, Jehovah makes the way out. God can fortify our faith and give us the spiritual strenth we need in order to maintain integrity.

Tina's comment on 2013-11-23 09:00:44:
Our preacher says that "God will not put on us more than we can bear"isn't in the bible.He(the preacher) says God will put on us more than we can bear so that we will continue to come to God and that if God didn't put more on us than we could bear,why would we need God.i don't get it.something isn't clear to me.help.

No matter how hard life can be for a believer in Jesus Christ, it should settle in our minds that, victory is ***ured when this verse, 1st Cor. 10:13 becomes our daily song.
Darrion's comment on 2013-06-14 09:47:13:
Amen Timothy, So we do not have an excuse when we sin because God gives us a way to escape from that temptation so we wont sin. If you are blind or dont take heed to the way out then you are in trouble. You must stay strong in your spirit to see the signs that God gives us. Be ye Holy for our Lord God is Holy!!!!
Timothy Wayne George's comment on 2011-11-02 06:22:09:
Temptation has two meanings: as one is an enticement to do evil, and the other is to test one to do good. God in his mercy only test us to do good. While he allows Satan to entice us to do evil he sets a limit on it so that we are able to endure it.
