aBe ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

Now bI praise you, brethren, cthat ye remember me in all things, and dkeep the ||ordinances, as I delivered them to you. But I would have you know, that ethe head of every man is Christ; and fthe head of the woman is the man; and gthe head of Christ is God. Every man praying or hprophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. But every woman that prayeth or iprophesieth with her head uncovered kdishonoureth her head: for that is even all one las if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be ma shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the nimage and oglory of God: but pthe woman is the oglory of the man. For the man is not of the woman; but qthe woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but rthe woman for the man. 10 For this cause ought the woman to have ||power on her head because of sthe angels. 11 Nevertheless tneither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, uin the Lord. 12 For as qthe woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but xall things of God. 13 yJudge 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 zif any man aseem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither bthe churches of God.
