1 Corinthians 11:26-30

The Lord's Supper

26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death z until he comes.

27 a Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord b in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning c the body and blood of the Lord. 28 d Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. 30 That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some e have died. 1
