A Textual Commentary On 1 Timothy 5:18

(a) The proof that this Gospel was quoted as Scripture by St. Paul is very plain : that apostle writes (1 Tim. v. 18.), “The Scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn, and, The labourer is worthy of his reward.” The latter words (only found in Luke x. 7.) being thus coupled with a sentence from the law of Moses.(Thomas Hartwell Horne, An Introduction to Critical Study and Knowledge of the Holy Scriptures, volume 4, p. 448)
