This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 9:16. Γὰρ, for) He now states, in what this glorying consists.-εὐαγγελίζωμαι [if], I preach) This must be taken in the exclusive sense; if I preach, and do so not gratuitously; if I do nothing besides.-ἀνάγκη, necessity) Owing [duty] takes away glorying.-οὐαὶ δὲ, but [yea] woe) but intensive; not only have I nothing, whereof I may glory, but even woe [to me, if I do not], Jon 1:4; Exo 4:14; Jer 20:9.
