Though I am free1 and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone,2 to win as many as possible.320
To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews.4 To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law),5 so as to win those under the law.
To those not having the law I became like one not having the law6 (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law),7 so as to win those not having the law.
To the weak I became weak, to win the weak.8 I have become all things to all men9 so that by all possible means I might save some.1023
I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.
