1 Corinthians 9:4-18

Have we not a right to eat and drink? Have we not a right to take round, a sister wife, - as even the rest of the apostles, and the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas? Or have, only I and Barnabas, not a right to forbear working?read more.
Who serveth as a soldier, at his own charges, at any time? Who planteth a vineyard, - and, the fruit thereof, doth not eat? Orwho shepherdeth a flock, - and, of the milk of the flock, doth not eat? Is it, after the manner of men, that these things I am saying? Or doth not, even the law, the same things, say? For, in the law of Moses, it is written - Thou shalt not muzzle an ox when it is treading out the corn: - Is it, for the oxen, God is caring? Or, for our sakes altogether, is he saying it? For our sakes, it was written; because, he that ploweth, ought, to plow, in hope, - and, he that thresheth, to thresh in hope of partaking. If, we, unto you, the things of the Spirit have sown, is it a great matter, if, we, of you, the things of the flesh shall reap? If, others, of this right, over you, are partaking, should not rather, we? nevertheless, we used not this right; but, all such things, do we conceal, - lest we should cause any hindrance unto the glad message of the Christ. Know ye not that, they who labour in the holy rites, do eat the provisions out of the holy place? They who at the altar wait, do, with the altar, share? Thus, also, hath the Lord, appointed - that, they who the glad message tell, should, of the glad-message, live. I, however, have not used any of these things; and have not written these things, in order that, so it should be done, in my case; for it were, good for me, rather to die than - - my boast, shall, no man, make void! For, if I be telling the glad-message, it is, with me, no matter of boasting; for, necessity, upon me, lieth, - for it is, Woe to me, if I should not be telling the glad-message; For, if, by choice, this thing I am doing, I have, a reward; but, if not by choice, with a stewardship, have I been entrusted! What, then, is my reward? that, in telling the glad-message, free of cost, I should put the glad-message, - to the end I should not use to the full my right in the glad-message.

1 Corinthians 6:1-7

Dare any of you, having, a matter against his brother, sue for judgment before the unrighteous, and not before the saints? Or know ye not that, the saints, shall judge the world? And, if, by you, the world, is to be judged, unworthy are ye of the smallest judgment-seats? Know ye not that we shall judge, messengers? and not, then, matters of this life?read more.
If, then, for matters of this, life ye have judgment-seats, them who are of no account in the assembly, these, are ye seating thereupon? With a view to shame you, am I speaking. So, is it possible that there is among you - not so much as one wise man, who shall be able to judge between his brethren, - But, brother with brother, sueth for judgment, and that before unbelievers? Already, indeed, it is an utter defeat for you, that ye are having, law-suits, one with another. Wherefore are ye not rather taking wrong? Wherefore are ye not rather suffering yourselves to be defrauded?

1 Corinthians 8:8-13

Food, indeed, will not commend us unto God, - neither, if we eat not, do we lack, nor, if we eat, do we abound.

In fact, he that is weak, is being destroyed, by thy knowledge - the brother for whose sake Christ died. But, in thus sinning against the brethren am wounding their conscience, seeing it is weak, against Christ, are ye sinning. Therefore, if food is an occasion of stumbling unto my brother, in nowise will I eat flesh unto the age that abideth, - that, I may not occasion, my brother, to stumble.

1 Corinthians 10:23-24

All things are allowable - but, not all things, are profitable, - all things are allowable - but, not all things, upbuild. Let, no one, be seeking, what concerneth himself, but that which concerneth some one else.
