ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
11:2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me
in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I
delivered them to you.
11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of
every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is
the man; and the head of Christ is God.
11:4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his
head covered, dishonoureth his head.
11:5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth
with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for
that is even all one as if she were shaven.
11:6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also
be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be
shorn or shaven, let her be covered.
11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head,
forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but
the woman is the glory of the man.
11:8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman
of the man.
11:9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but
the woman for the man.
11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power
on her head because of the angels.
11:11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the
woman, neither the woman without the man, in the
11:12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the
man also by the woman; but all things of God.
11:13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman
pray unto God uncovered?
11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that,
if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
11:15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory
to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.
11:16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have
no such custom, neither the churches of God.
11:17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise
you not, that ye come together not for the better,
but for the worse.
11:18 For first of all, when ye come together in the
church, I hear that there be divisions among you;
and I partly believe it.
11:19 For there must be also heresies among you,
that they which are approved may be made manifest
11:20 When ye come together therefore into one
place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper.
11:21 For in eating every one taketh before other
his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is
11:22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink
in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them
that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I
praise you in this? I praise you not.
11:23 For I have received of the Lord that which
also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the
same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
11:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and
said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken
for you: this do in remembrance of me.
11:25 After the same manner also he took the cup,
when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new
testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye
drink it, in remembrance of me.
11:26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink
this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
11:27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and
drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be
guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him
eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily,
eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not
discerning the Lord's body.
11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among
you, and many sleep.
11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not
11:32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of
the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the
11:33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together
to eat, tarry one for another.
11:34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home;
that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the
rest will I set in order when I come.
