1 Corinthians 9:27 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

27 No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 9:27 For fear that…I myself should be disqualified: a final paradoxical turn to the argument: what appears at first a free, spontaneous renunciation of rights (1 Cor 9:12–18) seems subsequently to be required for fulfillment of Paul’s stewardship (to preach effectively he must reach his hearers wherever they are, 1 Cor 9:19–22), and finally is seen to be necessary for his own salvation (1 Cor 9:23–27). Mention of the possibility of disqualification provides a transition to 1 Cor 10.
