1 Corinthians 9:13-23 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
13 1Do you not know that those who 2perform sacred services eat the food of the temple, and those who attend regularly to the altar have their share afrom the altar? 14 So also 3the Lord directed those who proclaim the 4gospel to 5get their living from the gospel. 15 But I have 6used none of these things. And I am not writing these things so that it will be done so in my case; for it would be better for me to die than have any man make 7my boast an empty one. 16 For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for 8I am under compulsion; for woe is me if I do not preach 9the gospel. 17 For if I do this voluntarily, I have a 10reward; but if against my will, I have a 11stewardship entrusted to me. 18 What then is my 12reward? That, when I preach the gospel, I may offer the gospel 13without charge, so as 14not to make full use of my right in the gospel. 19 For though I am 15free from all men, I have made myself 16a slave to all, so that I may 17win more. 20 18To the Jews I became as a Jew, so that I might win Jews; to those who are under bthe Law, as under cthe Law though 19not being myself under dthe Law, so that I might win those who are under ethe Law; 21 to those who are 20without law, 21as without law, though not being without the law of God but 22under the law of Christ, so that I might win those who are without law. 22 To the 23weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become 24all things to all men, 25so that I may by all means save some. 23 I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it.
