1 G1510 Am [G5748] G3756 I not G652 an apostle G1510 ? am [G5748] G3756 I not G1658 free G3780 ? have I not G3708 seen [G5758] G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G2257 our G2962 Lord G2075 ? are [G5748] G3756 not G5210 ye G3450 my G2041 work G1722 in G2962 the Lord?
2 G1487 If G1510 I be [G5748] G3756 not G652 an apostle G243 unto others G235 , yet G1065 doubtless G1510 I am [G5748] G5213 to you G1063 : for G4973 the seal G1699 of mine G651 apostleship G2075 are [G5748] G5210 ye G1722 in G2962 the Lord.
4 G2192 Have we [G5719] G3378 not G1849 power G5315 to eat [G5629] G2532 and G4095 to drink [G5629] ?
5 G2192 Have we [G5719] G3378 not G1849 power G4013 to lead about [G5721] G79 a sister G1135 , a wife G5613 , as well as G2532 G3062 other G652 apostles G2532 , and G80 as the brethren G2962 of the Lord G2532 , and G2786 Cephas?
6 G2228 Or G1473 I G3441 only G2532 and G921 Barnabas G2192 , have G3756 not G2192 we [G5719] G1849 power G3361 to forbear G2038 working [G5738] ?
7 G5101 Who G4754 goeth a warfare [G5731] G4218 any time at G2398 his own G3800 charges G5101 ? who G5452 planteth [G5719] G290 a vineyard G2532 , and G2068 eateth [G5719] G3756 not G1537 of G2590 the fruit G846 thereof G2228 ? or G5101 who G4165 feedeth [G5719] G4167 a flock G2532 , and G2068 eateth [G5719] G3756 not G1537 of G1051 the milk G4167 of the flock?
8 G2980 Say I [G5719] G5023 these things G3361 as G2596 G444 a man G2228 ? or G3004 saith [G5719] G3780 not G3551 the law G5023 the same G2532 also?
9 G1063 For G1125 it is written [G5769] G1722 in G3551 the law G3475 of Moses G5392 , Thou shalt G3756 not G5392 muzzle [G5692] G1016 the mouth of the ox G248 that treadeth out the corn [G5723] G3361 . G3199 Doth G2316 God G3199 take care [G5719] G1016 for oxen?
10 G2228 Or G3004 saith he [G5719] G3843 it altogether G1223 for G2248 our G1223 sakes G1223 ? For G2248 our G1223 sakes G1063 , no doubt G1125 , this is written [G5648] G3754 : that G722 he that ploweth [G5723] G3784 should [G5719] G722 plow [G5721] G1909 in G1680 hope G2532 ; and G248 that he that thresheth [G5723] G1680 in hope G3348 should be partaker [G5721] G1909 of G846 his G1680 hope.
11 G1487 If G2249 we G4687 have sown [G5656] G5213 unto you G4152 spiritual things G3173 , is it a great thing G1487 if G2249 we G2325 shall reap [G5692] G5216 your G4559 carnal things?
12 G1487 If G243 others G3348 be partakers [G5719] G1849 of this power G5216 over you G3756 , are not G2249 we G3123 rather G235 ? Nevertheless G5530 we have G3756 not G5530 used [G5662] G5026 this G1849 power G235 ; but G4722 suffer [G5719] G3956 all things G3363 , lest G1325 we should [G5632] G5100 G1464 hinder G2098 the gospel G5547 of Christ.
13 G1492 Do ye G3756 not G1492 know [G5758] G3754 that G2038 they which minister [G5740] G2413 about holy things G2068 live [G5719] G1537 of the things of G2411 the temple G4332 ? and they which wait [G5723] G2379 at the altar G4829 are partakers [G5736] G2379 with the altar?
14 G2532 Even G3779 so G1299 hath G2962 the Lord G1299 ordained [G5656] G2605 that they which preach [G5723] G2098 the gospel G2198 should live [G5721] G1537 of G2098 the gospel.
15 G1161 But G1473 I G5530 have used [G5662] G3762 none G5130 of these things G1161 : G3756 neither G1125 have I written [G5656] G5023 these things G2443 , that G1096 it should be G3779 so G1096 done [G5638] G1722 unto G1698 me G1063 : for G3123 it were better G3427 for me G599 to die [G5629] G2570 G2228 , than G2443 that G5100 any man G2758 should make G3450 my G2745 glorying G2758 void [G5661] .
16 G1063 For G1437 though G2097 I preach the gospel [G5735] G3427 , I G2076 have [G5748] G3756 nothing G2745 to glory of G1063 : for G318 necessity G1945 is laid upon [G5736] G3427 me G1161 ; yea G3759 , woe G2076 is [G5748] G3427 unto me G3362 , if G2097 I preach G3362 not G2097 the gospel [G5735] !
17 G1063 For G1487 if G4238 I do [G5719] G5124 this thing G1635 willingly G2192 , I have [G5719] G3408 a reward G1161 : but G1487 if G210 against my will G3622 , a dispensation G4100 of the gospel is committed unto me [G5769] .
18 G5101 What G2076 is [G5748] G3427 my G3408 reward G3767 then G2443 ? Verily that G2097 , when I preach the gospel [G5734] G5087 , I may make [G5661] G2098 the gospel G5547 of Christ G77 without charge G1519 , that G2710 I abuse [G5664] G3361 not G3450 my G1849 power G1722 in G2098 the gospel.
19 G1063 For G5607 though I be [G5752] G1658 free G1537 from G3956 all G1402 men, yet have I made G1683 myself G1402 servant [G5656] G3956 unto all G2443 , that G2770 I might gain [G5661] G4119 the more.
20 G2532 And G2453 unto the Jews G1096 I became [G5633] G5613 as G2453 a Jew G2443 , that G2770 I might gain [G5661] G2453 the Jews G5259 ; to them that are under G3551 the law G5613 , as G5259 under G3551 the law G2443 , that G2770 I might gain [G5661] G5259 them that are under G3551 the law;
21 G459 To them that are without law G5613 , as G459 without law G5607 , (being [G5752] G3361 not G459 without law G2316 to God G235 , but G1772 under the law G5547 to Christ G2443 ,) that G2770 I might gain [G5661] G459 them that are without law.
22 G772 To the weak G1096 became I [G5633] G5613 as G772 weak G2443 , that G2770 I might gain [G5661] G772 the weak G1096 : I am made [G5754] G3956 all things G3956 to all G2443 men, that G4982 I might G3843 by all means G4982 save [G5661] G5100 some.
23 G1161 And G5124 this G4160 I do [G5719] G1223 for G2098 the gospel's G1223 sake G2443 , that G1096 I might be [G5638] G4791 partaker G846 thereof G4791 with you .
24 G1492 Know ye [G5758] G3756 not G3754 that G5143 they which run [G5723] G1722 in G4712 a race G5143 run [G5719] G3956 all G3303 G1161 , but G1520 one G2983 receiveth [G5719] G1017 the prize G3779 ? So G5143 run [G5720] G2443 , that G2638 ye may obtain [G5632] .
25 G1161 And G3956 every man G75 that striveth for the mastery [G5740] G1467 is temperate [G5736] G3956 in all things G3303 . G3767 Now G1565 they G2443 do it to G2983 obtain [G5632] G5349 a corruptible G4735 crown G1161 ; but G2249 we G862 an incorruptible.
26 G1473 I G5106 therefore G3779 so G5143 run [G5719] G3756 , not G5613 as G84 uncertainly G3779 ; so G4438 fight I [G5719] G3756 , not G5613 as G1194 one that beateth [G5723] G109 the air:
