    Definitions for 1 Corinthians 11:33

    Wherefore - Why?; for what reason?; for what cause?

    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Corinthians 11:33

    When ye come together to eat - The Lord's Supper, tarry one for another - do not eat and drink in parties as ye have done heretofore; and do not connect it with any other meal.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Corinthians 11:33

    When ye come together to eat - Professedly to eat the Lord's Supper.

    Tarry one for another - Do not be guilty of disorder, intemperance, and gluttony; see the note at 1 Corinthians 11:21. Doddridge understands this of the feast that he supposes to have preceded the Lord's Supper. But the more obvious interpretation is, to refer it to the Lord's Supper itself; and to enjoin perfect order, respect, and sobriety. The idea is, that the table was common for the rich and the poor; and that the rich should claim no priority or precedence over the poor.
