- Be my imitators, even as *I* also [am] of Christ.
- Now I praise you, that in all things ye are mindful of me;
and that as I have directed you, ye keep the directions.
- But I wish you to know that the Christ is the head of every man, but woman's head [is] the man, and the Christ's head God.
- Every man praying or prophesying, having [anything] on his head, puts his head to shame.
- But every woman praying or prophesying with her head uncovered puts her own head to shame;
for it is one and the same as a shaved [woman].
- For if a woman be not covered, let her hair also be cut off.
But if [it be] shameful to a woman to have her hair cut off or to be shaved, let her be covered.
- For man indeed ought not to have his head covered, being God's image and glory;
but woman is man's glory.
- For man is not of woman, but woman of man.
- For also man was not created for the sake of the woman, but woman for the sake of the man.
- Therefore ought the woman to have authority on her head, on account of the angels.
- However, neither [is] woman without man, nor man without woman, in [the] Lord.
- For as the woman [is] of the man, so also [is] the man by the woman, but all things of God.
- Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman should pray to God uncovered?
- Does not even nature itself teach you, that man, if he have long hair, it is a dishonour to him?
- But woman, if she have long hair, [it is] glory to her;
for the long hair is given [to her] in lieu of a veil.
- But if any one think to be contentious, *we* have no such custom, nor the assemblies of God.
- But [in] prescribing [to you on] this [which I now enter on], I do not praise, [namely,] that ye come together, not for the better, but for the worse.
- For first, when ye come together in assembly, I hear there exist divisions among you, and I partly give credit [to it].
- For there must also be sects among you, that the approved may become manifest among you.
- When ye come therefore together into one place, it is not to eat [the] Lord's supper.
- For each one in eating takes his *own* supper before [others], and one is hungry and another drinks to excess.
- Have ye not then houses for eating and drinking?
or do ye despise the assembly of God, and put to shame them who have not?
What shall I say to you?
shall I praise you?
In this [point] I do not praise.
- For *I* received from the Lord, that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus, in the night in which he was delivered up, took bread,
- and having given thanks broke [it], and said, This is my body, which [is] for you: this do in remembrance of me.
- In like manner also the cup, after having supped, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do, as often as ye shall drink [it], in remembrance of me.
- For as often as ye shall eat this bread, and drink the cup, ye announce the death of the Lord, until he come.
- So that whosoever shall eat the bread, or drink the cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty in respect of the body and of the blood of the Lord.
- But let a man prove himself, and thus eat of the bread, and drink of the cup.
- For [the] eater and drinker eats and drinks judgment to himself, not distinguishing the body.
- On this account many among you [are] weak and infirm, and a good many are fallen asleep.
- But if we judged ourselves, so were we not judged.
- But being judged, we are disciplined of [the] Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
- So that, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, wait for one another.
- If any one be hungry, let him eat at home, that ye may not come together for judgment.
But the other things, whenever I come, I will set in order.
