1 Corinthians 9:15-2315But aI have made no use of any of these rights, nor am I writing these things to secure any such provision. For I would rather die than have anyone bdeprive me of my ground for boasting. 16For if I preach the gospel, that gives me no ground for boasting. For cnecessity is laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel! 17For if I do this of my own will, I have a reward, but if not of my own will, I am still entrusted with da stewardship. 18What then is my reward? That in my preaching eI may present the gospel free of charge, so as not to make full use of my right in the gospel. 19For fthough I am free from all gI have made myself a servant to all, that I might hwin more of them. 20 iTo the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though not being myself under the law) that I might win those under the law. 21To jthose outside the law I became kas one outside the law (not being outside the law of God but lunder the law of Christ) that I might win those outside the law. 22 mTo the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. nI have become all things to all people, that oby all means I might save some. 23I do it all for the sake of the gospel, pthat I may share with them in its blessings.
