1 aBe imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.
2 Now aI praise you because you bremember me in everything and chold firmly to the traditions, just as I delivered them to you.
3 But I want you to understand that 1Christ is the ahead of every man, and bthe man is the head of a woman, and God is the chead of 1Christ.
4 Every man who has something on his head while praying or aprophesying disgraces his head.
5 But every awoman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying disgraces her head, for she is one and the same as the woman 1whose head is bshaved.
6 For if a woman does not cover 1her head, let her also 2have her hair cut off; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to 2have her hair cut off or 1her head shaved, let her cover 1her head.
7 For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the aimage and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.
8 For aman 1does not originate from woman, but woman from man;
9 for indeed man was not created for the woman’s sake, but awoman for the man’s sake.
10 Therefore the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels.
11 However, in the Lord, neither is woman 1independent of man, nor is man 1independent of woman.
12 For as the woman 1originates from the man, so also the man has his birth through the woman; and aall things 2originate bfrom God.
13 aJudge 1for 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 to her for a covering.
16 But if one is inclined to be contentious, awe have no 1other practice, nor have bthe churches of God.
17 But in giving this instruction, aI do not praise you, because you come together not for the better but for the worse.
18 For, in the first place, when you come together 1as a church, I hear that 2adivisions exist among you; and in part I believe it.
19 For there amust also be factions among you, bso that those who are approved may become 1evident among you.
20 Therefore when you meet together, it is not to eat the Lord’s Supper,
21 for in your eating each one takes his own supper first; and one is hungry and aanother is drunk.
22 What! Do you not have houses in which to eat and drink? Or do you despise the achurch of God and bshame those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall cI praise you? In this I will not praise you.
23 For aI received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that bthe Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread;
24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
25 In the same way He took athe cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the bnew covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death auntil He comes.
27 Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be aguilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
28 But a man must aexamine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
29 For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly.
30 For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number 1asleep.
31 But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged.
32 But when we are judged, we are adisciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with bthe world.
33 So then, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another.
34 If anyone is ahungry, let him eat bat home, so that you will not come together for judgment. The remaining matters I will carrange dwhen I come.
