    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:21

    No podis beber la copa del Seor, y la copa de los demonios; no podis ser partícipes de la mesa del Seor, y de la mesa de los demonios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 10:21

    Verse 21. Ye cannot drink the
    cup of the Lord] It is in vain that you who frequent these idol festivals profess the religion of Christ, and commemorate his death and passion in the holy eucharist; for you can not have that fellowship with Christ which this ordinance implies, while you are partakers of the table of demons. That the Gentiles, in their sacrifices, fed on the slain beasts, and ate bread and drank wine in honour of their gods, is sufficiently clear from various accounts. See my Discourse on the Holy Eucharist, where many examples are produced. The following from Virgil, AEn. viii, verse 179-273, is proof in point:- Tum lecti juvenes certatim araeque sacerdos Viscera tosta ferunt taurorum, onerantque canistris Dona labouratae Cereris, Bacchumque ministrant.

    Vescitur AEneas simul et Trojana juventus Perpetui tergo bovis et lustralibus extis. - Quare agite, O juvenes, tantarum in munere laudum, Cingite fronde comas, et pocula porgite dextris, Communemque vocate Deum, et date vina volentes.

    The loaves were served in canisters; the wine In bowls; the priests renewed the rites divine: Broiled entrails are their food, and beef's continued chine Ye warlike youths, your heads with garlands crown, Fill high the goblets with a sparkling flood, And with deep draughts invoke our common god.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils , etc.] Not only they ought not, but they could not rightly, truly, and really drink the cup of wine in the Lords supper, in the true faith of Christs bloodshed, and his sacrifice offered up for them, in remembrance of his love, and to the honour of his name; and also the cup of wine of libations, poured out and drank to the honour of the Heathen deities; these things are utterly inconsistent; no man can serve two masters, God and mammon, or God and Baal; nor is there any concord between Christ and Belial, or agreement between the temple of God and idols: ye cannot be partakers of the Lords table, and of the table of devils ; no man can spiritually, however he may externally partake of the entertainment provided, on the table of the Lord, at his supper instituted and kept in commemoration of him; and also with gust and pleasure, and without any concern for the peace of weak minds, and the honour of God, eat things set upon a table in an idols temple, and before the idol, and as sacrificed unto it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 15-22 - Did not the joining in the
    Lord's supper show a profession of faith in Christ crucified, and of adoring gratitude to him for his salvation Christians, by this ordinance, and the faith therein professed, wer united as the grains of wheat in one loaf of bread, or as the member in the human body, seeing they were all united to Christ, and ha fellowship with him and one another. This is confirmed from the Jewis worship and customs in sacrifice. The apostle applies this to feastin with idolaters. Eating food as part of a heathen sacrifice, wa worshipping the idol to whom it was made, and having fellowship of communion with it; just as he who eats the Lord's supper, is accounte to partake in the Christian sacrifice, or as they who ate the Jewis sacrifices partook of what was offered on their altar. It was denyin Christianity; for communion with Christ, and communion with devils could never be had at once. If Christians venture into places, and joi in sacrifices to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life, they will provoke God.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    21. The
    cup of devils. Representing the heathen feast. The special reference may be either to the drinking-cup, or to that used for pouring libations.

    The Lord's table. Representing the Lord's Supper. See ch. xi. 20 sqq. The Greeks and Romans, on extraordinary occasions, placed images of the gods reclining on couches, with tables and food beside them, as if really partakers of the things offered in sacrifice.113 Diodorus, describing the temple of Bel at Babylon, mentions a large table of beaten gold, forty feet by fifteen, standing before the colossal statues of three deities. Upon it were two drinking-cups. See, also, the story of "Bel and the Dragon," vers. 10-15. 114 The sacredness of the table in heathen worship is apparent from the manner in which it is combined with the altar in solemn formulae; as ara et mensa. Allusions to the table or to food and drink-offerings in honor of heathen deities occur in the Old Testament: Isa. lxv. 11; Jer. vii. 18; Ezek. xvi. 18, 19; xxiii. 41. In Mal. i. 7, the altar of burnt-offering is called "the table of the Lord." 115


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    10:21 {Ye cannot} (ou dunasqe). Morally impossible to drink the Lord's cup and the cup of demons, to partake of the Lord's table and the table of demons. {Of the table of the Lord} (trapezes kuriou). No articles, but definite idea. trapeza is from tetra (four) and peza (a foot), four-footed. Here {table} means, as often, what is on the table. See #Lu 22:30 where Jesus says "at my table" (epi tes trapezes mou), referring to the spiritual feast hereafter. Here the reference is plainly to the Lord's Supper (Kuriakon deipnon, #1Co 11:20). See allusions in O.T. to use of the table in heathen idol feasts (#Isa 65:11; Jer 7:18; Eze 16:18f.; 23:41). The altar of burnt-offering is called the table of the Lord in #Mal 1:7 (Vincent).
