Do you not know that those who run
|Do you not know that those who run,
Run on a racecourse, all run,
All run, but one receives the prize?
Run in this way, that you may lay hold.
And everyone who contends exercises
Self-control in all things; those therefore,
That they may receive a corruptible crown,
But we receive an incorruptible.
There is another verse, composed of 9:26,27, 23
I therefore run but as a servant be,
so I box, not as beating the air.
I buffet my body and beat it as a slave,
lest having preached to others, I disapproved become.
I do all things for the sake of the gospel
That I may become a fellow partaker.
Enjoying the gospel, a joint participant
Enjoying the gospel, a partaker of it.
