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?
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.
9:3 Mine answer to them that do examine me is this,
9:4 Have we not power to eat and to drink?
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?
9:6 Or I only and Barnabas, have not we power to
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?
9:8 Say I these things as a man? or saith not the
law the same also?
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?
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.
9:11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is
it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal
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.
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
9:14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which
preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
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.
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!
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.
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
9:19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I
made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the
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;
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
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.
9:23 And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I
might be partaker thereof with you.
9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run
all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye
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.
9:26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so
fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
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.
