1 Corinthians 9:6
Context
The Rights of the Apostles

1Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? are not you my work in the Lord? 2If I be not an apostle to others, yet doubtless I am to you: for the seal of my apostleship are you in the Lord. 3My answer to them that do examine me is this, 4Have we not power to eat and to drink? 5Have we not power to lead about a sister, a wife, as well as other apostles, and as the brothers of the Lord, and Cephas? 6Or I only and Barnabas, have not we power to forbear working? 7Who goes a warfare any time at his own charges? who plants a vineyard, and eats not of the fruit thereof? or who feeds a flock, and eats not of the milk of the flock? 8Say I these things as a man? or said not the law the same also? 9For it is written in the law of Moses, You shall not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treads out the corn. Does God take care for oxen? 10Or said he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that plows should plow in hope; and that he that threshes in hope should be partaker of his hope. 11If we have sown to you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things? 12If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ. 13Do you not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? 14Even so has the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel. 15But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things, that it should be so done to me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void. 16For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid on me; yes, woe is to me, if I preach not the gospel! 17For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed to me. 18What is my reward then? Truly that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.
