1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Rotherham(i) 24 Know ye not that, they who, in a racecourse, run, all, indeed, run,—but, one, receiveth the prize? So, be running, that ye may lay hold. 25 But, every man who striveth in the games, in all things, useth self-control;—they, indeed, then, that a corruptible crown, they may receive; but, we, an incorruptible! 26 I, therefore, so, am running, as, not uncertainly, so, am boxing, as not thrashing air; 27 But am beating my body under, and leading it captive, lest, by any means,—unto others, having proclaimed, [the contest], I myself, should be rejected.
