1 Corinthians 11

11:1 Be yee followers of mee, euen as I also am of Christ. 11:2 Now I prayse you, brethren, that you remember me in all things, and keepe the ordinances, as I deliuered them to you. 11:3 But I would haue you knowe, that the head of euery man is Christ: and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God. 11:4 Euery man praying or prophecying, hauing his head couered, dishonoureth his head. 11:5 But euery woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head vncouered, dishonoureth her head: for that is euen all one as if she were shauen. 11:6 For if the woman be not couered, let her also bee shorne: but if it bee a shame for a woman to be shorne or shauen, let her be couered. 11:7 For a man in deede ought not to couer his head, forasmuch as hee 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 haue power on her head, because of the Angels. 11:11 Neuerthelesse, neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man in the Lord. 11:12 For as the woman is of the man: euen so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God. 11:13 Iudge in your selues, is it comely that a woman pray vnto God vncouered 11:14 Doeth not euen nature it selfe teach you, that if a man haue long haire, it is a shame vnto him 11:15 But if a woman haue long haire, it is a glory to her: for her haire is giuen her for a couering. 11:16 But if any man seeme to be contentious, we haue no such custome, neither the Churches of God. 11:17 Now in this that I declare vnto you, I praise you not, that you come together not for the better, but for the worse. 11:18 For first of all when yee come together in the Church, I heare that there be diuisions among you, and I partly beleeue it. 11:19 For there must bee also heresies among you, that they which are approued may be made manifest among you. 11:20 When yee come together therefore into one place, this is not to eate the Lords Supper. 11:21 For in eating, euery one taketh before other, his owne supper: and one is hungry, and an other is drunken. 11:22 What, haue ye not houses to eate and to drinke in Or despise yee the Church of God, and shame them that haue not What shall I say to you shall I praise you in this I prayse you not. 11:23 For I haue receiued of the Lord that which also I deliuered vnto you, that the Lord Iesus, the same night in which he was betrayed, tooke bread: 11:24 And when he had giuen thanks, he brake it, and sayd, Take, eate, this is my body, which is broken for you: this doe in remembrance of mee. 11:25 After the same manner also hee tooke the cup when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new Testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drinke it, in remembrance of me. 11:26 For as often as ye eate this bread, and drinke this cup, yee doe shew the Lords death till he come. 11:27 Wherefore, whosoeuer shall eate this bread, and drinke this cup of the Lord vnworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 11:28 But let a man examine himselfe, and so let him eate of that bread, and drinke of that cup. 11:29 For hee that eateth and drinketh vnworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himselfe, not discerning the Lords body. 11:30 For this cause many are weake and sickly among you, and many sleepe. 11:31 For if we would iudge our selues, we should not be iudged. 11:32 But when we are iudged, we are chastened of the Lord, that wee should not be condemned with the world. 11:33 Wherefore my brethren, when ye come together to eate, tary one for another. 11:34 And if any man hunger, let him eate at home, that ye come not together vnto condemnation. And the rest wil I set in order, when I come.
