Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:1 - Am I not free? am I not an apostle? have I not seen Jesus our Lord? are not *ye* my work in the Lord?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:2 - If I am not an apostle to others, yet at any rate I am to you: for the seal of mine apostleship are *ye* in the Lord.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:3 - My defence to those who examine me is this:
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:4 - Have we not a right to eat and to drink?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:5 - have we not a right to take round a sister as wife, as also the other apostles, and the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:6 - Or *I* alone and Barnabas, have we not a right not to work?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:7 - Who ever carries on war at his own charges? who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? or who herds a flock and does not eat of the milk of the flock?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:8 - Do I speak these things as a man, or does not the law also say these things?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:9 - For in the law of Moses it is written, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that is treading out corn. Is God occupied about the oxen,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:10 - or does he say it altogether for our sakes? For for our sakes it has been written, that the plougher should plough in hope, and he that treads out corn, in hope of partaking of it.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:11 - If we have sown to you spiritual things, is it a great thing if *we* shall reap your carnal things?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:12 - If others partake of this right over you, should not rather *we*? But we have not used this right, but we bear all things, that we may put no hindrance in the way of the glad tidings of the Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:13 - Do ye not know that they who labour at sacred things eat of the offerings offered in the temple; they that attend at the altar partake with the altar?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:14 - So also the Lord has ordained to those that announce the glad tidings to live of the glad tidings.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:15 - But *I* have used none of these things. Now I have not written these things that it should be thus in my case; for it were good for me rather to die than that any one should make vain my boast.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:16 - For if I announce the glad tidings, I have nothing to boast of; for a necessity is laid upon me; for it is woe to me if I should not announce the glad tidings.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:17 - For if I do this voluntarily, I have a reward; but if not of my own will, I am entrusted with an administration.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:18 - What is the reward then that I have? That in announcing the glad tidings I make the glad tidings costless to others, so as not to have made use, as belonging to me, of my right in announcing the glad tidings.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:19 - For being free from all, I have made myself bondman to all, that I might gain the most possible.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:20 - And I became to the Jews as a Jew, in order that I might gain the Jews: to those under law, as under law, not being myself under law, in order that I might gain those under law:
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:21 - to those without law, as without law, (not as without law to God, but as legitimately subject to Christ,) in order that I might gain those without law.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:22 - I became to the weak, as weak, in order that I might gain the weak. To all I have become all things, in order that at all events I might save some.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:23 - And I do all things for the sake of the glad tidings, that I may be fellow-partaker with them.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:24 - Know ye not that they who run in the race-course run all, but one receives the prize? Thus run in order that ye may obtain.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:25 - But every one that contends for a prize is temperate in all things: *they* then indeed that they may receive a corruptible crown, but *we* an incorruptible.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:26 - *I* therefore thus run, as not uncertainly; so I combat, as not beating the air.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:27 - But I buffet my body, and lead it captive, lest after having preached to others I should be myself rejected.
DBY

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
