This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 9:19. Ἐκ πάντων, from all men) Masculine, as we have immediately after, unto all; comp. the more. I was free from all men, i.e. no one could have held me as subject to his power.-ἐδούλωσα, I made myself a servant) a servant suits himself entirely to another.-τοὺς πλείονας, the more) The article has a force relative to all, i.e. as many of them as possible.-κερδήσω, I might gain) This word agrees with the consideration of a reward.
