Unworthiness and Communion- I Corinthians 11:27
#1
"Therefore whosoever shall eat of the Lord's bread and drink of his cup unworthily shall be guilty of the blood and body of the Lord."- George M. Lamsa

"Whoever then eateth of the bread of the Lord, and drinketh of his cup, and is not worthy of it, is guilty of the blood of the Lord and of his body."- John Wesley Etheridge

"He therefore, who eateth of the bread of the Lord, and drinketh of his cup, and is not worthy of it, is guilty of the blood of the Lord, and of his body."- James Murdock

"He therefore, who eats of the bread of Master YHWH and drinks of His cup and is not worthy of it, is guilty of the blood of Master YHWH and of His body."- Andrew Gabriel Roth

"Therefore whoever eats of the bread of the lord and drinks from his cup and is not worthy, he is indebted to the blood of the lord and to his body."- The Way International

"Therefore, whoever eats of the bread of Marya and drinks from his cup and is not worthy, he is indepted to the blood of Marya and to his body."- Janet M. Magiera (Messianic)

"Whoever therefore eats from the bread of THE LORD JEHOVAH and drinks from his cup and is unworthy of it, is guilty for the blood of THE LORD JEHOVAH and for his body."- Glenn David Bauscher

"He therefore who eats of the bread of the Lord, and drinks of his cup, and is not worthy of it, is guilty of the blood of the Lord, and of his body."- William Norton

Lamsa seems to be the only translator who translates the phrase in quetion with an adverb (unworthily. Everyone else translates it as as an adjective (is not worthy). The Greek uses "unworthy" as an adverb, therefore it is describing the manner in which you eat the Lord's supper, not your spiritual condition. According to Dukhrana's Peshitta tool, this is a verb in the Peshitta, not an adjective.The Greek definitely seems to agree with the context of the preceding verses. Can someone who can read Aramaic give me an more detailed exploration of this verse?
