1 Corinthians 11
ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.
3But 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.
man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.
5But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that
is even all one as if she were shaven.
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.
7For 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.
8For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.
9Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
10For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.
11Nevertheless neither is the man without
the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.
as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.
13Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?
14Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a
shame unto him?
15But if a woman have long
hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.
16But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
17Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not
for the better, but for the worse.
of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.
19For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be
made manifest among you.
20When ye come together
therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper.
in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
22What? 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.
23For 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:
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
25After 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
26For as often as ye eat this bread,
and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
28But let a man examine himself, and so let
him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
30For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
31For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
32But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned
with the world.
33Wherefore, my brethren,
when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.
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
