|New International Version (© 2011)|
Don't you know that those who serve in the temple get their food from the temple, and that those who serve at the altar share in what is offered on the altar?
King James Bible
Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?
American Standard Version
Know ye not that they that minister about sacred things eat of the things of the temple, and they that wait upon the altar have their portion with the altar?
Young's Literal Translation
Have ye not known that those working about the things of the temple -- of the temple do eat, and those waiting at the altar -- with the altar are partakers?
1 Corinthians 9:13 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
They which minister about holy things - All the officers about the temple, whether priests, Levites, Nethinim, etc., had a right to their support while employed in its service. The priests partook of the sacrifices; the others had their maintenance from tithes, first fruits, and offerings made to the temple; for it was not lawful for them to live on the sacrifices. Hence the apostle makes the distinction between those who minister about holy things and those who wait at the altar.
