1 Corinthians 11
11 1Be ye imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ.
praise you that ye remember me in all things, and hold fast the traditions,
even 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.
4Every man praying or prophesying, having his head
covered, dishonoreth his head.
5But every woman praying or prophesying
with her head unveiled dishonoreth her head; for it is one and the same thing
as if she were shaven.
6For if a woman is not veiled, let her also be
shorn: but if it is a shame to a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be
7For a man indeed ought not to have his head veiled, 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:
neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man:
10for this cause ought the woman to have a sign of authority on
her head, because of the angels.
11Nevertheless, neither is the woman
without the man, nor the man without the woman, in the Lord.
12For as the
woman is of the man, so is the man also by the woman; but all things are of
13Judge ye in yourselves: is it seemly that a woman pray unto God
14Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have
long hair, it is a dishonor to 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 seemeth to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches
17But in giving you this charge, I praise you not, that ye come
together not for the better but for the worse.
18For first of all, when
ye come together in the church, I hear that divisions exist among you; and I
partly believe it.
19For there must be also factions among you, that they
that are approved may be made manifest among you.
20When therefore ye
assemble yourselves together, it is not possible to eat the Lord's supper:
21for in your eating each 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 put them to shame
that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you? In this I praise
23For I received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto
you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was betrayed took bread;
24and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, This is my body,
which is for you: this do in remembrance of me.
25In like manner also the
cup, after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do,
as often as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
26For as often as
ye eat this bread, and drink the cup, ye proclaim the Lord's death till he
27Wherefore whosoever shall eat the bread or drink the cup of the
Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the
28But let a man prove himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and
drink of the cup.
29For he that eateth and drinketh, eateth and drinketh
judgment unto himself, if he discern not the body.
30For this cause many
among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep.
31But if we discerned
ourselves, we should not be judged.
32But when we are judged, we are
chastened of the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
33Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, wait one for
34If any man is hungry, let him eat at home; that your coming
together be not unto judgment. And the rest will I set in order whensoever I
