Examine Yourself

27 Therefore whoever eats wthis bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and 6blood of the Lord. 28 But xlet a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks 7in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the 8Lord’s body. 30 For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many 9sleep. 31 For yif we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, zwe are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.

33 Therefore, my brethren, when you acome together to eat, wait for one another. 34 But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest you come together for judgment. And the rest I will set in order when I come.


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
