is used in 1 Corinthians 11:27 , of partaking of the Lord's Supper "unworthly," i.e., treating it as a common meal, the bread and cup as common things, not apprehending their solemn symbolic import. In the best texts the word is not found in ver. 29 (see RV).

(Strong's #370 — Adjective — anaxios — an-ax'-ee-os )

a, negative, n, euphonic, axios, "worthy," is used in 1 Corinthians 6:2 . In modern Greek it signifies "incapable."

Note: In Acts 13:46 , "unworthy" represents the adjective axios, preceeded by the negative ouk.
