1 Corinthians 9:8-10 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
8 Am I saying only what men say? Does not God's law also say the same?
9 Moses wrote in his books of the law of God, `Do not tie shut the mouth of an ox when it is treading the grain.' Does God care about the oxen?
10 Does he not say this altogether for our sakes? Yes, he said it for our sakes. There are people who plough the ground and beat the grain. They do this work because they believe they will have a part of the food for themselves.
