1 Corinthians 9:7–15

Who goeth ma warfare any time at his own ncharges? who oplanteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who pfeedeth a qflock, and eateth not of the milk of the qflock? Say I these things ras a man? or saith not the law the same also? For it is written in the law of Moses, sThou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that ttreadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? 10 Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? uFor our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that whe that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that tthresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope. 11 xIf we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things? 12 If others be partakers of this power yover you, are not we rather? Nevertheless zwe have not used this power; but asuffer all things, blest we should hinder the gospel of Christ. 13 Do ye not know that cthey which minister about holy things ||live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? 14 Even so dhath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel gshould live of the gospel. 15 But eI have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make fmy glorying void.
