Verse 31

11:31 ourselves, (n-5) ' Judged ourselves' is not the same in Greek as ' judged ,' used later in this ver. and in ver. 32, but as ' distinguish the Lord's body,' ver. 29. But 'distinguish' does not imply the active exercise of judgment on our own state, nor a formal scrutiny. Here the force is, If I scrutinize and judge myself, I shall not come under an actual judgment from the Lord's hand. Judging oneself has this force in English, while the Lord's judgment is felt to be a positive result of judgment exercised towards us.

Verse 34

11:34 judgment. (a-18) See Note, ver. 29.
