1 Cor. 9:1 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

And, "(I think) God hath selected us the apostles (as) hindmost, like men appointed to fight with wild beasts; since we have been made a spectacle to this world, both to angels and to men: "And, "We have been made the offscourings of this world, the refuse of all: "And, "Am I not free? am I not an apostle? have I not seen Christ Jesus our Lord?

Thus it comes to pass that "all things are lawful, but not all are expedient," so long as (it remains true that) whoever has a "permission" granted is (thereby) tried, and is (consequently) judged during the process of trial in (the case of the particular) "permission." Apostles, withal, had a "licence" to marry, and lead wives about (with them[42]

1 Cor. 9:9 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian An Answer to the Jews

But the new law's wont was to point to clemency, and to convert to tranquillity the pristine ferocity of "glaives" and "lances," and to remodel the pristine execution of "war" upon the rivals and foes of the law into the pacific actions of "ploughing" and "tilling" the land.[54]

1 Cor. 9:9 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book III

interprets the law which allows an unmuzzled mouth to the oxen that tread out the corn, not of cattle, but of ourselves;[62]

1 Cor. 9:9 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

What was the use, however, of adducing the Creator's, which he was destroying? It was vain to do so; for his god had no such authority! (The apostle) says: "Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn,"[323]

1 Cor. 9:9 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book II

Doth God take care for oxen? or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written, that he that plougheth should plough in hope, and he that thresheth in hope of partaking of the fruits."[46]

1 Cor. 9:9 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book IV

may suffice him for all cases? Moreover, it is in perfect harmony with these sayings that Paul speaks, when he interprets to the following intent certain things written in the law: "Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that tread-eth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? Or saith He it altogether for our sakes? "[172]

1 Cor. 9:9 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book II

1 Cor. 9:19 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book VI

For instance, Paul circumcised Timothy because of the Jews who believed, in order that those who had received their training from the law might not revolt from the faith through his breaking such points of the law as were understood more cam ally, knowing right well that circumcision does not justify; for he professed that "all things were for all" by conformity, preserving those of the dogmas that were essential, "that he might gain all."[237]

1 Cor. 9:19 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book VI

And Daniel, under the king of the Persians, wore "the chain,"[238]

1 Cor. 9:19 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book VII

But that he might not, by dragging all at once away from the law to the circumcision of the heart through faith those of the Hebrews who were reluctant listeners, compel them to break away from the synagogue, he, "accommodating himself to the Jews, became a Jew that he might gain all."[81]

1 Cor. 9:19 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Idolatry

Now by this time, you who argue about "Joseph" and "Daniel," know that things old and new, rude and polished, begun and developed, slavish and free, are not always comparable. For they, even by their circumstances, were slaves; but you, the slave of none,[141]

to be free from all, but to bring himself under bondage to all those below that He might gain the more of them.[258]

1 Cor. 9:20 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

1 Cor. 9:20 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

1 Cor. 9:20 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian The Prescription Against Heretics

doctrine into suspicion, I will put in a defence, as it were, for Peter, to the effect that even Paul said that he was "made all things to all men-to the Jews a Jew," to those who were not Jews as one who was not a Jew-"that he might gain all."[258]

1 Cor. 9:20 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

Their truth may be inferred from their agreement with the apostle's own profession, how "to the Jews he became as a Jew, that he might gain the Jews, and to them that were under the law, as under the law,"-and so here with respect to those who come in secretly,-"and lastly, how he became all things to all men, that he might gain all."[100]

1 Cor. 9:20 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XI

who in suffering for men "became a curse for us." But just as fittingly Paul became a Jew to the Jews that he might gain Jews,[70]

1 Cor. 9:22 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book V

Wherefore also, to those that ask the wisdom that is with us, we are to hold out things suitable, that with the greatest possible ease they may, through their own ideas, be likely to arrive at faith in the truth. For "I became all things to all men, that I might gain all men."[50]

1 Cor. 9:22 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Idolatry

No doubt he used to please them by celebrating the Saturnalia and New-year's day! [Was it so] or was it by moderation and patience? by gravity, by kindness, by integrity? In like manner, when he is saying, "I have become all things to all, that I may gain all,"[105]

1 Cor. 9:22 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book IV

from respect of persons. And yet as Paul himself "became all things to all men,"[76]

1 Cor. 9:22 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Monogamy

But so did circumstances require him to "become all things to all, in order to gain all; "[100]

1 Cor. 9:24 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle VIII

1 Cor. 9:24 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

In the first Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians: "Know ye not, that they which run in a race run indeed all, although one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And those indeed that they may receive a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible."[547]

1 Cor. 9:24 - NIV, NAB - in Pseudo-Cyprian On the Glory of Martyrdom

1 Cor. 9:25 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Ad Martyras

They are kept from luxury, from daintier meats, from more pleasant drinks; they are pressed, racked, worn out; the harder their labours in the preparatory training, the stronger is the hope of victory. "And they," says the apostle, "that they may obtain a corruptible crown."[6]

1 Cor. 9:25 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Theonas to Lucianus

And each of us runs "not as uncertain," and he so fights with evil "not as one beating the air,"[136]

1 Cor. 9:27 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book III

Et ideo Paulus quoque: "Corpus meum," inquit, "castigo, et in servitutem redigo; quoniam qui certat, omnia continet," hoc est, in omnibus continet, non ab omnibus abstinens, sed continenter utens iis, quae utenda judicavit, "illi quidera ut corruptibilem coronam accipiant; nos autem ut incorruptibilem,"[200]

We, however, when we do abstain, do so because "we keep under our body, and bring it into subjection,"[168]

1 Cor. 9:27 - NIV, NAB - in The First Epistle of Clement Concerning Virginity

He in whomsoever the Spirit of God is, is in accord with the will of the Spirit of God; and, because he is in accord with the Spirit of God, therefore does he mortify, the deeds of the body and live unto God, "treading down and subjugating the body and keeping it under; so that, while preaching to others," he may be a beautiful example and pattern to believers, and may spend his life in works which are worthy of the Holy Spirit, so that tie may "not be cast away,"[81]
