20 When you come together, it is not the Lord's supper that you eat. 21 For in eating, each one goes ahead with his own meal. One goes hungry, (A)another gets drunk. 22 What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise (B)the church of God and (C)humiliate those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I commend you in this? No, I will not.

23 For (D)I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that (E)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[a] you. Do this in remembrance of me.”[b] 25 In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the 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 (F)until he comes.

27 (G)Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord (H)in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning (I)the body and blood of the Lord. 28 (J)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.
