Δοκιμαζέτω, let him prove [examine]) by judging as to himself, and by judging as to [discerning, i.e. distinguishing from common food] the body of the Lord, 1Co 11:29; 1Co 11:31.-ἄνθρωπος, a man) any one, 1Co 4:1, even one that is in himself unworthy.-οὕτως) so at length.-ἐκ τοῦ) The preposition expresses circumspection of mind; but τὸν ἄρτον, τὸ ποτήριον, the bread, the cup, 1Co 11:27, forms a phrase showing that they had not been duly discerned, by the receivers at Corinth: see the preceding verse.
