1 Corinthians 11:17–34
17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. 18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, cI hear that there be ||divisions among you; and I partly believe it. 19 For dthere must be also ||eheresies among you, fthat they which are gapproved may be made manifest among you. 20 When ye come together therefore into one place, ||this is not to eat hthe Lord’s supper. 21 For in eating every one rtaketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and ianother is drunken. 22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye kthe church of God, and lshame ||them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not. 23 For mI have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, nThat the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: 24 And when he had given thanks, he obrake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is obroken for you: this do ||in premembrance qof me. 25 After the same manner also he took the cup, rwhen he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ||ye do shew the Lord’s death still he come. 27 Wherefore twhosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, uunworthily, shall be wguilty of xthe body and blood of the Lord. 28 But ylet a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh ||damnation to himself, not zdiscerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this cause many are weak and asickly among you, and many bsleep. 31 For cif we would djudge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, ewe are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. 33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. 34 And fif any man hunger, let him geat at home; that hye come not together unto ||condemnation. And the rest iwill I set in order kwhen I come.
