Listen! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no benefit to you at all!
Since we have heard that some have gone out from among us with no orders from us and have confused you, upsetting your minds by what they said,
Paul wanted Timothy to accompany him, and he took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in those places, for they all knew that his father was Greek.
1 Corinthians 9:20
To the Jews I became like a Jew to gain the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law) to gain those under the law.
