1 Corinthians 11:27-32 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
Partaking of the Supper Unworthily
27 Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For any one who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment upon himself. 30 That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died.[a] 31 But if we judged ourselves truly, we should not be judged. 32 But when we are judged by the Lord, we are chastened[b] so that we may not be condemned along with the world.
