11 aBe ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
2 Now bI praise you, brethren, cthat ye remember me in all things, and dkeep the ||ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 3 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. 4 Every man praying or hprophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 5 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. 6 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. 7 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. 8 For the man is not of the woman; but qthe woman of the man. 9 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.
17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. 18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, cI hear that there be ||divisions among you; and I partly believe it. 19 For dthere must be also ||eheresies among you, fthat they which are gapproved may be made manifest among you. 20 When ye come together therefore into one place, ||this is not to eat hthe Lord’s supper. 21 For in eating every one rtaketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and ianother is drunken. 22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye kthe church of God, and lshame ||them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not. 23 For mI have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, nThat the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: 24 And when he had given thanks, he obrake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is obroken for you: this do ||in premembrance qof me. 25 After the same manner also he took the cup, rwhen he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ||ye do shew the Lord’s death still he come. 27 Wherefore twhosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, uunworthily, shall be wguilty of xthe body and blood of the Lord. 28 But ylet a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh ||damnation to himself, not zdiscerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this cause many are weak and asickly among you, and many bsleep. 31 For cif we would djudge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, ewe are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. 33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. 34 And fif any man hunger, let him geat at home; that hye come not together unto ||condemnation. And the rest iwill I set in order kwhen I come.
