1 Corinthians 10:20

But I say that (all' oti).
The verb phmi (I say) must be repeated from verse 19 before oti.

To demons, and not to God (daimonioiv kai ou tewi).
Referring to LXX text of Deuteronomy 32:17. It is probable that by ou tewi Paul means "to a no-god" as also in Deuteronomy 32:21 ep' ouk etnei (by a no-people). This is Paul's reply to the heathen who claimed that they worshipped the gods represented by the images and not the mere wood or stone or metal idols. The word daimonia is an adjective daimoniov from daimwn, an inferior deity, and with same idea originally, once in this sense in N.T. (Acts 17:18). Elsewhere in N.T. it has the notion of evil spirits as here, those spiritual forces of wickedness (Ephesians 6:12) that are under the control of Satan. The word daimonia, so common in the Gospels, occurs in Paul's writings only here and 1 Timothy 4:1. Demonology is a deep and dark subject here pictured by Paul as the explanation of heathenism which is a departure from God (Romans 1:19-23) and a substitute for the worship of God. It is a terrible indictment which is justified by the licentious worship associated with paganism then and now.
