    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:30

    Por lo cual hay muchos enfermos y debilitados entre vosotros; y muchos duermen.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 11:30

    Verse 30. For this cause] That they partook of this
    sacred ordinance without discerning the Lord's body; many are weak and sickly: it is hard to say whether these words refer to the consequences of their own intemperance or to some extraordinary disorders inflicted immediately by God himself. That there were disorders of the most reprehensible kind among these people at this sacred supper, the preceding verses sufficiently point out; and after such excesses, many might be weak and sickly among them, and many might sleep, i.e. die; for continual experience shows us that many fall victims to their own intemperance. How ever, acting as they did in this solemn and awful sacrament, they might have "provoked God to plague them with divers diseases and sundry kinds of death." Communion service.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 30. For this cause many are
    weak and sickly , etc.] Because of their unworthy participation of the Lords supper, many in the Corinthian church were attended with bodily infirmities and diseases; either by way of fatherly chastisement and correction in such who were truly the Lords people, though they had behaved unworthily; or by way of punishment to such who were not, and had sinned very grossly: and many sleep ; that is, die a corporeal death, which is often in Scripture signified by sleep, and frequently used of the saints, and their death, and may intend and include some of them here; for though the Lord might resent so far their unworthy conduct and behaviour at his table, as to remove them out of this world by death, yet their souls may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-34 - The
    apostle describes the sacred ordinance, of which he had the knowledge by revelation from Christ. As to the visible signs, these ar the bread and wine. What is eaten is called bread, though at the sam time it is said to be the body of the Lord, plainly showing that the apostle did not mean that the bread was changed into flesh. St. Matthe tells us, our Lord bid them all drink of the cup, ch. Mt 26:27, as is he would, by this expression, provide against any believer being deprived of the cup. The things signified by these outward signs, ar Christ's body and blood, his body broken, his blood shed, together with all the benefits which flow from his death and sacrifice. Our Saviour' actions were, taking the bread and cup, giving thanks, breaking the bread, and giving both the one and the other. The actions of the communicants were, to take the bread and eat, to take the cup an drink, and to do both in remembrance of Christ. But the outward act are not the whole, or the principal part, of what is to be done at thi holy ordinance. Those who partake of it, are to take him as their Lor and Life, yield themselves up to him, and live upon him. Here is a account of the ends of this ordinance. It is to be done in remembranc of Christ, to keep fresh in our minds his dying for us, as well as to remember Christ pleading for us, in virtue of his death, at God's righ hand. It is not merely in remembrance of Christ, of what he has don and suffered; but to celebrate his grace in our redemption. We declar his death to be our life, the spring of all our comforts and hopes. An we glory in such a declaration; we show forth his death, and plead it as our accepted sacrifice and ransom. The Lord's supper is not a ordinance to be observed merely for a time, but to be continued. The apostle lays before the Corinthians the danger of receiving it with a unsuitable temper of mind; or keeping up the covenant with sin an death, while professing to renew and confirm the covenant with God. N doubt such incur great guilt, and so render themselves liable to spiritual judgements. But fearful believers should not be discourage from attending at this holy ordinance. The Holy Spirit never cause this scripture to be written to deter serious Christians from their duty, though the devil has often made this use of it. The apostle wa addressing Christians, and warning them to beware of the tempora judgements with which God chastised his offending servants. And in the midst of judgement, God remembers mercy: he many times punishes thos whom he loves. It is better to bear trouble in this world, than to be miserable for ever. The apostle points our the duty of those who com to the Lord's table. Self-examination is necessary to right attendanc at this holy ordinance. If we would thoroughly search ourselves, to condemn and set right what we find wrong, we should stop Divin judgements. The apostle closes all with a caution against the irregularities of which the Corinthians were guilty at the Lord' table. Let all look to it, that they do not come together to God' worship, so as to provoke him, and bring down vengeance on themselves __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    30.
    Weak and sickly. Physical visitations on account of profanation of the Lord's table.

    Many sleep (koimwntai ikanoi). The word for many means, primarily, adequate, sufficient. See on Rom. xv. 23. Rev., not a few hardly expresses the ominous shading of the word: quite enough have died. Sleep. Better, are sleeping. Here simply as a synonym for are dead, without the peculiar restful sense which christian sentiment so commonly conveys into it. See on Acts vii. 60; 2 Pet. iii. 4.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    11:30 {And not a few sleep} (kai koimwntai hikanoi). Sufficient number (hikanoi) are already asleep in death because of their desecration of the Lord's table. Paul evidently had knowledge of specific instances. A few would be too many.
