1 Corinthians 9:20
And I became to the Jews as a Jew, in order that I might gain the Jews: to those under law, as under law, not being myself under law, in order that I might gain those under law:
It is sufficient for the disciple that he should become as his teacher, and the bondman as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more those of his household?
The disciple is not above his teacher, but every one that is perfected shall be as his teacher.
But only in this will we consent to you, if ye will be as we, that every male of you be circumcised;
But only in this will the men consent to us to dwell with us, to be one people if every male among us be circumcised, just as they are circumcised.
All of them shall answer and say unto thee, Art thou also become powerless as we; art thou become like unto us!
And Paul said, I would to God, both in little and in much, that not only thou, but all who have heard me this day, should become such as I also am, except these bonds.
Be as I am, for I also am as ye, brethren, I beseech you: ye have not at all wronged me.
But the crowds, who saw what Paul had done, lifted up their voices in Lycaonian, saying, The gods, having made themselves like men, are come down to us.
