For, in the first place, when you assemble as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you; and I partly believe it,
for there must be factions among you in order that those who are genuine among you may be recognized.
When you meet together, it is not the Lord's supper that you eat.
For in eating, each one goes ahead with his own meal, and one is hungry and another is drunk.
What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and humiliate those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I commend you in this? No, I will not.
