2 Timothy 2:5

English Standard Version

5 An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. (1Co9:25; 2Ti4:8)

New International Version

5 Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules.

New Int. Readers Version

5 In the same way, anyone who takes part in a sport doesn't receive the winner's crown unless he plays by the rules.

King James Version

5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.
