“Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law the same also?”
King James Version (KJV)
9:8 Do I speak as a man - Barely on the authority of human reason? Does not God also say, in effect, the same thing? The ox that treadeth out the corn - This was the custom in Judea, and many eastern nations. In several of them it is retained still. And at this day, horses tread out the corn in some parts of Germany.
1Co 9:8 Say I these things as a man? Human affairs teach our right to be sustained. Saith not the law the same also? But the law of Moses teaches the same lesson.
