Jewish New Testament Commentary Page 71-72


19 For although I am free with respect to all, I have made myself a slave to all, so that I might win more of them.

20 To the Jews I bacame as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I bacame as one under the law (though I myself am not under the law) so that I might win those under the law.

21 To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law) so that I might win those outside the law.

22 To the weak I became weak, so that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that I might by all means save some.

23 I do it all for the sake of the gospel, so that I may share in its blessings.
