24 aDo you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives bthe prize? cRun in such a way that you may win.
25 Everyone who acompetes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable bwreath, but we an imperishable.
26 Therefore I arun in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not bbeating the air;
27 but I 1discipline amy body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.
