1 Corinthians 11:17-34 "Now in this that I declare unto you..." KJV - Online Bible Study Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, butfor the worse. 18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there bedivisions among you; and I partly believe it. 19 For there must be also heresies among you, thatthey which are approved may be made manifest among you. 20 When ye come together thereforeinto one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper. 21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry , and another is drunken . 22 What? have ye not houses to eatand to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I sayto you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not. 23 For I have received of the Lord that whichalso I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed tookbread: 24 And when he had given thanks , he brake it, and said , Take , eat : this is my body,which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25 After the same manner also he took thecup, when he had supped , saying , This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye , as oftas 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 till he come . 27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drinkthis cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a manexamine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth anddrinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep . 31 For if we would judgeourselves, we should not be judged . 32 But when we are judged , we are chastened of the Lord,that we should not be condemned with the world. 33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye cometogether to eat , tarry one for another. 34 And if any man hunger , let him eat at home; that yecome not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come .
