1 Corinthians, Chapter 11

11:1 Be+ imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ.
11:2 Now I praise you+ that you+ remember me in all things, and hold fast the traditions, even as I delivered them to you+.
11:3 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.
11:4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head.
11:5 But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonors her head; for it is one and the same thing as if she were shaven.
11:6 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.
11:7 For a man indeed ought not to have his head veiled, since he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
11:8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man:
11:9 for neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man:
11:10 for this cause ought the woman to have [a sign of] authority on her head, because of the angels.
11:11 Nevertheless, neither is the woman without the man, nor the man without the woman, in the Lord.
11:12 For as the woman is of the man, so is the man also by the woman; but all things are of God.
11:13 Judge+ in yourselves: is it seemly that a woman prays to God unveiled?
11:14 Does not even nature itself teach you+, that, if a man has long hair, it is a shame to him?
11:15 But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given to her for a covering.
11:16 But if any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
11:17 But in giving you+ this charge, I do not praise you+, that you+ come together not for the better but for the worse.
11:18 For first of all, when you+ come together in the church, I hear that divisions exist among you+; and I partly believe it.
11:19 For there must also be factions among you+, that those who are approved may also be made manifest among you+.
11:20 When therefore you+ assemble yourselves together, it is not possible to eat the Lord's supper:
11:21 for in your+ eating each takes before [another] his own supper; and one is hungry, and another is drunk.
11:22 What, don't you+ have houses to eat and to drink in? Or do you+ despise the church of God, and put them to shame who do not have? What shall I say to you+? Shall I praise you+? In this I do not praise you+.
11:23 For I received of the Lord that which also I delivered to you+, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was delivered up took bread;
11:24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, This is my body, which is for you+: this do in remembrance of me.
11:25 In like manner also the cup, after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do, as often as you+ drink [it], in remembrance of me.
11:26 For as often as you+ eat this bread, and drink the cup, you+ proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
11:27 Therefore whoever will eat the bread or drink the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, will be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
11:28 But let a man prove himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup.
11:29 For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he does not discern the body.
11:30 For this cause many among you+ are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep.
11:31 But if we discerned ourselves, we should not be judged.
11:32 But when we are judged by the Lord, we are chastened, that we may not be condemned with the world.
11:33 Therefore, my brothers, when you+ come together to eat, wait one for another.
11:34 If any man is hungry, let him eat at home; that your+ coming together not be to judgment. And the rest I will set in order whenever I come.
