1 Corinthians 9:12-14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
12 If others share this rightful claim on you, do not we still more?
Reason for Not Using His Rights. Yet we have not used this right.[a] On the contrary, we endure everything so as not to place an obstacle to the gospel of Christ. 13 [b]Do you not know that those who perform the temple services eat [what] belongs to the temple, and those who minister at the altar share in the sacrificial offerings? 14 In the same way, the Lord ordered that those who preach the gospel should live by the gospel.
