|Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. |
|Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. |
|Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. |
|1 Corinthians 9:24 |
