1 Corinthians 11

11:1 Followers of me become ye, as I also [am] of Christ. 11:2 And I praise you, brethren, that in all things ye remember me, and according as I did deliver to you, the deliverances ye keep, 11:3 and I wish you to know that of every man the head is the Christ, and the head of a woman is the husband, and the head of Christ is God. 11:4 Every man praying or prophesying, having the head covered, doth dishonour his head, 11:5 and every woman praying or prophesying with the head uncovered, doth dishonour her own head, for it is one and the same thing with her being shaven, 11:6 for if a woman is not covered--then let her be shorn, and if [it is] a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven--let her be covered; 11:7 for a man, indeed, ought not to cover the head, being the image and glory of God, and a woman is the glory of a man, 11:8 for a man is not of a woman, but a woman [is] of a man, 11:9 for a man also was not created because of the woman, but a woman because of the man; 11:10 because of this the woman ought to have [a token of] authority upon the head, because of the messengers; 11:11 but neither [is] a man apart from a woman, nor a woman apart from a man, in the Lord, 11:12 for as the woman [is] of the man, so also the man [is] through the woman, and the all things [are] of God. 11:13 In your own selves judge ye; is it seemly for a woman uncovered to pray to God 11:14 doth not even nature itself teach you, that if a man indeed have long hair, a dishonour it is to him 11:15 and a woman, if she have long hair, a glory it is to her, because the hair instead of a covering hath been given to her; 11:16 and if any one doth think to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the assemblies of God.  11:17 And this declaring, I give no praise, because not for the better, but for the worse ye come together; 11:18 for first, indeed, ye coming together in an assembly, I hear of divisions being among you, and partly I believe [it] , 11:19 for it behoveth sects also to be among you, that those approved may become manifest among you; 11:20 ye, then, coming together at the same place--it is not to eat the Lord's supper; 11:21 for each his own supper doth take before in the eating, and one is hungry, and another is drunk; 11:22 why, have ye not houses to eat and to drink in or the assembly of God do ye despise, and shame those not having what may I say to you shall I praise you in this I do not praise!  11:23 For I--I received from the Lord that which also I did deliver to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was delivered up, took bread, 11:24 and having given thanks, he brake, and said, `Take ye, eat ye, this is my body, that for you is being broken; this do ye--to the remembrance of me.' 11:25 In like manner also the cup after the supping, saying, `This cup is the new covenant in my blood; this do ye, as often as ye may drink [it] --to the remembrance of me;' 11:26 for as often as ye may eat this bread, and this cup may drink, the death of the Lord ye do shew forth--till he may come; 11:27 so that whoever may eat this bread or may drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, guilty he shall be of the body and blood of the Lord: 11:28 and let a man be proving himself, and so of the bread let him eat, and of the cup let him drink; 11:29 for he who is eating and drinking unworthily, judgment to himself he doth eat and drink--not discerning the body of the Lord. 11:30 Because of this, among you many [are] weak and sickly, and sleep do many; 11:31 for if ourselves we were discerning, we would not be being judged, 11:32 and being judged by the Lord, we are chastened, that with the world we may not be condemned; 11:33 so then, my brethren, coming together to eat, for one another wait ye; 11:34 and if any one is hungry, at home let him eat, that to judgment ye may not come together; and the rest, whenever I may come, I shall arrange.
