Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:1 - Am G1510 I not free? G1658 Am G1510 I not an apostle? G652 Have I not seen G3708 Jesus G2424 our Lord? G2962 Are you not my work G2041 in the Lord? G2962

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:2 - If G1487 to others G243 I am G1510 not an apostle, G652 at least G235 G1065 I am G1510 to you; for you are the seal G4973 of my apostleship G651 in the Lord. G2962

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:3 - My defense G627 to those G3588 who examine G350 me is this: G3778

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:4 - [fn]Do we not have G2192 a right G1849 to eat G2068 and drink? G4095

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:5 - [fn]Do we not have G2192 a right G1849 to take G4013 along G4013 a [fn]believing G79 wife, G1135 even G2532 as the rest G3062 of the apostles G652 and the brothers G80 of the Lord G2962 and Cephas? G2786

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:6 - Or G2228 do only G3441 [fn]Barnabas G921 and I not have G2192 a right G1849 to refrain G3361 from working? G2038

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:7 - Who G5101 at any G4218 time G4218 serves G4754 as a soldier G4754 at his own G2398 expense? G3800 Who G5101 plants G5452 a vineyard G290 and does not eat G2068 the fruit G2590 of it? Or G2228 who G5101 tends G4165 a flock G4167 and does not [fn]use G2068 the milk G1051 of the flock? G4167

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:8 - I am not speaking G2980 these G3778 things G3778 according G2596 to [fn]human G444 judgment, G444 am I? Or G2228 does not the Law G3551 also G2532 say G3004 these G3778 things? G3778

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:9 - For it is written G1125 in the Law G3551 of Moses, G3475 “YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE G5392 THE OX G1016 WHILE HE IS THRESHING G248.” God G2316 is not concerned G3199 about oxen, G1016 is He?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:10 - Or G2228 is He speaking G3004 altogether G3843 for our sake? G1223 Yes, G1063 for our sake G1223 it was written, G1125 because G3754 the plowman G722 ought G3784 to plow G722 in hope, G1680 and the thresher G248 to thresh in hope G1680 of sharing G3348 the crops.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:11 - If G1487 we sowed G4687 spiritual G4152 things G4152 in you, is it too G3173 much G3173 if G1487 we reap G2325 material G4559 things G4559 from you?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:12 - If G1487 others G243 share G3348 the right G1849 over you, do we not more? G3123 Nevertheless, G235 we did not use G5530 this G3778 right, G1849 but we endure G4722 all G3956 things G3956 so G2443 that we will cause G1325 no G3361 G5100 hindrance G1464 to the gospel G2098 of Christ. G5547

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:13 - Do you not know G6063 that those G3588 who perform G2038 sacred G2413 services G2413 eat G2068 the food of the temple, G2413 and those G3588 who attend G4332 regularly G4332 to the altar G2379 have G4829 their share G4829 [fn]from the altar? G2379

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:14 - So G3779 also G2532 the Lord G2962 directed G1299 those G3588 who proclaim G2605 the gospel G2098 to get G2198 their living G2198 from the gospel. G2098

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:15 - But I have used G5530 none G3762 of these G3778 things. G3778 And I am not writing G1125 these G3778 things G3778 so G3779 that it will be done G1096 so G3779 in my case; G1722 for it would be better G2570 G3123 for me to die G599 than G2228 have any G5100 man make G2758 my boast G2745 an empty G2758 one.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:16 - For if G1437 I preach G2097 the gospel, G2097 I have nothing G3756 to boast G2745 of, for I am G1945 under G1945 compulsion; G318 for woe G3759 is me if G1437 I do not preach G2097 the gospel. G2097

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:17 - For if G1487 I do G4238 this G3778 voluntarily, G1635 I have G2192 a reward; G3408 but if G1487 against G210 my will, G210 I have a stewardship G3622 entrusted G4100 to me.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:18 - What G5101 then G3767 is my reward? G3408 That, when I preach G2097 the gospel, G2097 I may offer G5087 the gospel G2098 without G77 charge, G77 so G1519 as not to make G2710 full G2710 use G2710 of my right G1849 in the gospel. G2098

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:19 - For though I am G1510 free G1658 from all G3956 men, I have made G1402 myself G1683 a slave G1402 to all, G3956 so G2443 that I may win G2770 more. G4183

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:20 - To the Jews G2453 I became G1096 as a Jew, G2453 so G2443 that I might win G2770 Jews; G2453 to those G3588 who G3588 are under G5259 [fn]the Law, G3551 as under G5259 [fn]the Law G3551 though not being G1510 myself G846 under G5259 [fn]the Law, G3551 so G2443 that I might win G2770 those G3588 who G3588 are under G5259 [fn]the Law; G3551

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:21 - to those G3588 who are without G459 law, G459 as without G459 law, G459 though not being G1510 without G459 the law G459 of God G2316 but under G1772 the law G1772 of Christ, G5547 so G2443 that I might win G2770 those G3588 who are without G459 law. G459

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:22 - To the weak G772 I became G1096 weak, G772 that I might win G2770 the weak; G772 I have become G1096 all G3956 things G3956 to all G3956 men, G3956 so G2443 that I may by all G3843 means G3843 save G4982 some. G5100

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:23 - I do G4160 all G3956 things G3956 for the sake G1223 of the gospel, G2098 so G2443 that I may become G1096 a fellow G4791 partaker G4791 of it.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:24 - Do you not know G6063 that those G3588 who run G5143 in a race G4712 all G3956 run, G5143 but only one G1520 receives G2983 the prize? G1017 Run G5143 in such G3779 a way G3779 that you may win. G2638

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:25 - Everyone G3956 who competes G75 in the games G75 exercises G1467 self-control G1467 in all G3956 things. G3956 They then G3767 do it to receive G2983 a perishable G5349 wreath, G4735 but we an imperishable. G862

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:26 - Therefore G5106 I run G5143 in such G3779 a way, G3779 as not without G84 aim; G84 I box G4438 in such G3779 a way, G3779 as not beating G1194 the air; G109

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:27 - but I [fn]discipline G5299 my body G4983 and make G1396 it my slave, G1396 so that, after I have preached G2784 to others, G243 I myself G846 will not be disqualified. G96
