And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I , not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it unto subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached unto others, I myself should be a castaway.
