1 Corinthians 9:26-27 The Passion Translation (TPT)

26 For that reason, I don’t run just for exercise[a] or box like one throwing aimless punches, 27 but I train like a champion athlete. I subdue my body[b] and get it under my control, so that after preaching the good news to others I myself won’t be disqualified.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 Corinthians 9:26 Or “I don’t run aimlessly.” That is, Paul ran with his eyes on the goal of ending well.
  2. 1 Corinthians 9:27 Or “I beat my body black and blue.” This is an obvious metaphor of placing the desires of one’s body as second place to the desires of the Holy Spirit. See Rom. 8:13.
