20) "When therefore ye assemble yourselves together, it is 21 not possible to eat the Lord's supper: "for in your eating


each one taketh before other his own supper; and one is 22) hungry, and another is drunken. "What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the 1 church of God, and put them to shame that have not? What shall I say to you? 3 shall I praise you in this? I praise (23 you not. "For I received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, how that the Lord Jesus in the night (24 in which he was betrayed took bread; "and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, This is my body, (25 which is for you: this do in remembrance of me.


like manner also the cup, after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do, as oft as ye (26 drink it, in remembrance of me. "For as often as ye eat

this bread, and drink the cup, ye proclaim the Lord's (27 death till he come. "Wherefore whosoever shall eat the bread or drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, shall be 28 guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. "But let a


man prove himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and (29 drink of the cup. "For he that eateth and drinketh, eateth and drinketh judgement unto himself, if he discern 30) not the body. "For this cause many among you are 31 weak and sickly, and not a few sleep. "But if we 'dis32 cerned ourselves, we should not be judged. "But when

we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we 33 may not be condemned with the world. "Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, wait one for (34) another. "If any man is hungry, let him eat at home;

Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant. "Ye know that when ye were Gentiles ye were led away unto those dumb idols, howsoever (3 ye might be led. "Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking in the Spirit of God saith, Jesus is anathema; and no man can say, Jesus is Lord, but in the Holy Spirit.



Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. "And there are diversities of ministrations, and the same (6 Lord. "And there are diversities of workings, but the 7) same God, who worketh all things in all. "But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit to profit withal. 8 "For to one is given through the Spirit the word of wisdom; and to another the word of knowledge, according (9 to the same Spirit: "to another faith, in the same Spirit; and to another gifts of healings, in the one Spirit; "and to another workings of 'miracles; and to another prophecy; and to another discernings of spirits: to another divers kinds of tongues; and to another the interpretaI tion of tongues: "but all these worketh the one and the same Spirit, dividing to each one severally even as he will.




For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; (13 so also is Christ. "For in one Spirit were we all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free; and were all made to drink of one Spirit. "For the 15) body is not one member, but many. "If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; 16) it is not therefore not of the body. "And if the ear shall

"And the eye cannot say to the hand, I have


no need of thee: or again the head to the feet, I have no 22 need of you. "Nay, much rather, those members of the 23 body which seem to be more feeble are necessary: "and those parts of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we 'bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness; "whereas our comely parts have no need: but God tempered the body together, giving more abundant honour 25 to that part which lacked; "that there should be no schism. in the body; but that the members should have the same 26 care one for another. "And whether one member suffereth, all the members suffer with it; or one member is * honoured, all the members rejoice with it. "Now ye are the body of Christ, and severally members thereof. 28 "And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, then 'miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, divers kinds of 29 tongues. "Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all (30 teachers? are all workers of miracles? "have all gifts of healings? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? "But desire earnestly the greater gifts. And a still more excellent way shew I unto you.
