- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
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.

what a divine revelation

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.

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.

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!!!!

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.
