Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:1 - Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:2 - If I am not an apostle to others, at least I am to you, for you are the confirming sign of my apostleship in the Lord.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:3 - This is my defense to those who examine me.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:4 - Do we not have the right to financial support?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:5 - Do we not have the right to the company of a believing wife, like the other apostles and the Lord's brothers and Cephas?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:6 - Or do only Barnabas and I lack the right not to work?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:7 - Who ever serves in the army at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat its fruit? Who tends a flock and does not consume its milk?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:8 - Am I saying these things only on the basis of common sense, or does the law not say this as well?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:9 - For it is written in the law of Moses, "Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain." God is not concerned here about oxen, is he?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:10 - Or is he not surely speaking for our benefit? It was written for us, because the one plowing and threshing ought to work in hope of enjoying the harvest.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:11 - If we sowed spiritual blessings among you, is it too much to reap material things from you?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:12 - If others receive this right from you, are we not more deserving? But we have not made use of this right. Instead we endure everything so that we may not be a hindrance to the gospel of Christ.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:13 - Don't you know that those who serve in the temple eat food from the temple, and those who serve at the altar receive a part of the offerings?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:14 - In the same way the Lord commanded those who proclaim the gospel to receive their living by the gospel.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:15 - But I have not used any of these rights. And I am not writing these things so that something will be done for me. In fact, it would be better for me to die than - no one will deprive me of my reason for boasting!

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:16 - For if I preach the gospel, I have no reason for boasting, because I am compelled to do this. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:17 - For if I do this voluntarily, I have a reward. But if I do it unwillingly, I am entrusted with a responsibility.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:18 - What then is my reward? That when I preach the gospel I may offer the gospel free of charge, and so not make full use of my rights in the gospel.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:19 - For since I am free from all I can make myself a slave to all, in order to gain even more people.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:20 - To the Jews I became like a Jew to gain the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law) to gain those under the law.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:21 - To those free from the law I became like one free from the law (though I am not free from God's law but under the law of Christ) to gain those free from the law.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:22 - To the weak I became weak in order to gain the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that by all means I may save some.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:23 - I do all these things because of the gospel, so that I can be a participant in it.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:24 - Do you not know that all the runners in a stadium compete, but only one receives the prize? So run to win.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:25 - Each competitor must exercise self-control in everything. They do it to receive a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:26 - So I do not run uncertainly or box like one who hits only air.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:27 - Instead I subdue my body and make it my slave, so that after preaching to others I myself will not be disqualified.
