- Be ye imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ.
- Now I praise you that ye remember me in all things, and hold fast the traditions, even as I delivered them to you.
- But 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.
- Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoreth his head.
- But 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.
- For 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 veiled.
- For 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.
- For the man is not of the woman;
but the woman of the man:
- for neither was the man created for the woman;
but the woman for the man:
- for this cause ought the woman to have [a sign of] authority on her head, because of the angels.
- Nevertheless, neither is the woman without the man, nor the man without the woman, in the Lord.
- For as the woman is of the man, so is the man also by the woman;
but all things are of God.
- Judge ye in yourselves: is it seemly that a woman pray unto God unveiled?
- Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a dishonor to him?
- But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.
- But if any man seemeth to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
- But in giving you this charge, I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better but for the worse.
- For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that divisions exist among you;
and I partly believe it.
- For there must be also factions among you, that they that are approved may be made manifest among you.
- When therefore ye assemble yourselves together, it is not possible to eat the Lord’s supper:
- for in your eating each one taketh before [other] his own supper;
and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
- What, 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 you not.
- For 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;
- and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, This is my body, which is for you: this do in remembrance of me.
- In 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.
- For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink the cup, ye proclaim the Lord’s death till he come.
- Wherefore 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 Lord.
- But let a man prove himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup.
- For he that eateth and drinketh, eateth and drinketh judgment unto himself, if he discern not the body.
- For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep.
- But if we discerned ourselves, we should not be judged.
- But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
- Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, wait one for another.
- If 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 come.
