Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 11:21

_ _ one taketh before other — the rich “before” the poor, who had no supper of their own. Instead of “tarrying for one another” (1 Corinthians 11:33); hence the precept (1 Corinthians 12:21, 1 Corinthians 12:25).

_ _ his own supper — “His own” belly is his God (Philippians 3:19); “the Lord’s Supper,” the spiritual feast, never enters his thoughts.

_ _ drunken — The one has more than is good for him, the other less [Bengel].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 11:17-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 11:21

For in eating what ye call the Lord's supper, instead of all partaking of one bread, each person brings his own supper, and eats it without staying for the rest. And hereby the poor, who cannot provide for themselves, have nothing; while the rich eat and drink to the full just as the heathens use to do at the feasts on their sacrifices.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 11:21

For in eating every one taketh (h) before [other] his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.

(h) Eats his food and does not wait until others come.

1 Corinthians 10:16-18 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? ... Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?

2 Peter 2:13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, [as] they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots [they are] and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
Jude 1:12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds [they are] without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
