Even as, I also, in all things do please all, not seeking my own profit, but that of the many, that they may be saved.
Let, no one, be seeking, what concerneth himself, but that which concerneth some one else.
If by any means I may provoke to jealousy my own flesh, and save some from among them; -
Let, each one of us, unto his neighbour give pleasure - for what is good unto upbuilding;
For, though free from all, unto all, myself, I enslaved, - that, the larger number, I might win:
Apart from the things without, my daily care, - my anxiety for all the assemblies; -
All this time, think ye, that, unto you, we are making a defence? Before God in Christ, we speak; - but all these things, beloved, for your upbuilding.
For am I, even now, persuading, men, or God? Or am I seeking to please, men? If I had been still pleasing, men, Christ's servant, had I not been!
