The Lord’s Supper

23 For (A)I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that (B)the Lord Jesus, on the night when He was betrayed, took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same way He also took (C)the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the (D)new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death (E)until He comes.

27 Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy way, shall be (F)guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. 28 But a person must (G)examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For the one who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not properly recognize the [a]body. 30 For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number [b](H)are asleep. 31 But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are (I)disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with (J)the world.

33 So then, my brothers and sisters, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. 34 If anyone is (K)hungry, have him eat (L)at home, so that you do not come together for judgment. As to the remaining matters, I will (M)give instructions (N)when I come.
