They then do it to receive a perishable (E)wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 Therefore I (F)run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not (G)beating the air; 27 but I [a]discipline (H)my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.
