(1co 9:1) Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? are not ye my work in the Lord?
(1co 9:2) If I be not an apostle unto others, yet doubtless I am to you: for the seal of mine apostleship are ye in the Lord.
(1co 9:3) Mine answer to them that do examine me is this,
(1co 9:4) Have we not power to eat and to drink?
(1co 9:5) Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and {as} the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?
(1co 9:6) Or I only and Barnabas, have not we power to forbear working?
(1co 9:7) Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock?
(1co 9:8) Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law the same also?
(1co 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?
(1co 9:10) Or saith he {it} altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, {this} is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.
(1co 9:11) If we have sown unto you spiritual things, {is it} a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?
(1co 9:12) If others be partakers of {this} power over you, {are} not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ.
(1co 9:13) Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live {of the things} of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?
(1co 9:14) Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
(1co 9:15) But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for {it were} better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.
(1co 9:16) For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!
(1co 9:17) For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation {of the gospel} is committed unto me.
(1co 9:18) What is my reward then? {Verily} that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.
(1co 9:19) For though I be free from all {men}, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.
(1co 9:20) And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;
(1co 9:21) To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.
(1co 9:22) To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all {men}, that I might by all means save some.
(1co 9:23) And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with {you}.
(1co 9:24) Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
(1co 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.
(1co 9:26) I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
(1co 9:27) But I keep under my body, and bring {it} into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
