In the Old Testament, although once used in a sense of not taking advantage of the disabled, stumbling blocks were something that people put between themselves and God, or that God put before the disobedient.
"You shall not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall fear your God: I am The Lord." (Leviticus 19:14 RSV)
In the New Testament, stumbling blocks were used in a spiritual sense:
"Then let us no more pass judgment on one another, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother." (Romans 14:13 RSV)
