1 Corinthians 11:2–16

Head Coverings

Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things and keep the traditions just as I delivered them to you. But I want you to know that bthe head of every man is Christ, cthe head of woman is man, and dthe head of Christ is God. Every man praying or eprophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head. But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, for that is one and the same as if her head were fshaved. For if a woman is not covered, let her also be shorn. But if it is gshameful for a woman to be shorn or shaved, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since hhe is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. For man is not from woman, but woman ifrom man. Nor was man created for the woman, but woman jfor the man. 10 For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless, kneither is man independent of woman, nor woman independent of man, in the Lord. 12 For as woman came from man, even so man also comes through woman; but all things are from God.

13 Judge among yourselves. Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him? 15 But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given 1to her for a covering. 16 But lif anyone seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, mnor do the churches of God.
