4. His Endeavor
vv.24-27

24 Do you not know that those who 1run on a aracecourse all run, but one receives the 2bprize? cRun in this way, that you may 3lay hold.

25 And everyone who acontends exercises self-control in all things; they then, that they may receive a corruptible 1crown, but we, ban cincorruptible.

26 I therefore arun in this way, not as though without a clear aim; I box in this way, not as though beating the bair;

27 But I 1buffet my body and 2make it my slave, 3lest perhaps having 4preached to others, I myself may become 5adisapproved.
