17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse.

18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.

19 For there must be also heresies 9 among you, w that they which are approved 10 may be made manifest among you.

20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat" the Lord's supper.

21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper : and one is hungry, and * another is drunken.

u 1 Cor. i. 10–12: I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you. For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos ; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. do. iii. 3, &c: For ye are yet carnal : for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men ? &c.

And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. See on Mat. xviii. 6, 7.

22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the Church of God, and a shame them that have not ?12 What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this ? I praise

23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread :

24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat : this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance 13

of me.

25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament 14 in my blood : 15 this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 26 For 16

as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show 17 the Lord's death

27 • Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread,
and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall
be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

28 But let a man examine himself, and so let
him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily,
leateth and drinketh damnation 18 to himself, not
discerning the Lord's body.

30 For this cause many are weak and sickly
among you, and many sleep.

31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should
not be judged.

the man that is clean, and is not in a journey, and forbeareth
to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from

which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he
shall live for ever : and the bread that I will give is my flesh,
which I will give for the life of the world. It is the spirit that
quickeneth ; the flesh profiteth nothing : the words that I
speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But there
are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the
beginning who they were that believed not, and who should
betray him. do. xiii. 27 : After the sop Satan entered into

32 But when we are judged, we are 5 chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.

34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto conprosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. 1 John, i. 9: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. ጌ

Deut. viii. 5: Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the LORD thy God chasteneth thee. Job, v. 17 : Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth : therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty. Ps. xciv. 12, 13 : Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law; that thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked. do. cxix. 75: I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me. Pro. ii. 11, 12: My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD ; neither be weary of his correction. For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. Heb. xii. 5--11: My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him : for whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if


be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure ; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous : nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. James, i. 12: Blessed is the. man that endureth temptation : for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life. do. v. 11: Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord ; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy. Rev. iii. 19: As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten.

NOW concerning * spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

2 Ye know that ye were • Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.

CHAP. XII. a 1 Cor. xiv. 1,37: Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

b1 Cor. vi. ll: And such were some of you : but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. Eph. ii. 11, 12 : Remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh-That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel. 1. Thes. i. 9: Ye turned to God from idols, to serve the living and true God. Tit.iii. 3: For we ourselves also were soinetimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 1 Pet. iv.3: For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries.
