Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:7 - Who goeth a warfare at any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of its fruit? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:9 - For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:13 - Do ye not know that they who minister about holy things live from the things of the temple, and they who wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:14 - Even so hath the Lord ordained that they who preach the gospel should live by the gospel.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:15 - But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done to me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:24 - Know ye not, that they who run in a race, all run, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:25 - And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:26 - I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so I fight, not as one that beateth the air:

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 9:27 - But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest by any means when I have preached to others, I myself should be a cast-away.
