1 Corinthians 11

1 Be aye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and bkeep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 3 But I would have you know, that ethe head of every man is Christ; and dthe head of the woman is the man; and cthe head of Christ is God. 4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 5 But gevery woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were fshaven. 6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be ha shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as ihe is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. 8 For jthe man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. 10 For this cause ought the woman kto have power on her head lbecause of the angels. 11 Nevertheless mneither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. 12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; nbut all things of God. 13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? 14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. 16 But oif any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

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. 18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, pI hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. 19 For qthere must be also heresies among you, rthat they which are approved may be made manifest among you. 20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper. 21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and sanother is drunken. 22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or tdespise 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. 23 For uI 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: 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. 25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is vthe new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death wtill he come. 27 xWherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But ylet a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For zif we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, awe are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. 33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. 34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest bwill I set in order when cI come.
