Paul's Use of Liberty

1 Am I not 1free? Am I not an 2apostle? Have I not 3seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not 4my work in the Lord? 2 If to others I am not an apostle, at least I am to you; for you are the 5seal of my 6apostleship in the Lord. 3 My defense to those who examine me is this: 4 a7Do we not have a right to eat and drink? 5 b8Do we not have a right to take along a cbelieving wife, even as the rest of the apostles and the 9brothers of the Lord and 10Cephas? 6 Or do only d11Barnabas and I not have a right to refrain from working? 7 Who at any time serves 12as a soldier at his own expense? Who 13plants a vineyard and does not eat the fruit of it? Or who tends a flock and does not euse the milk of the flock? 8 I am not speaking these things 14according to fhuman judgment, am I? Or does not the Law also say these things?
