<< 1 Corinthians 11
1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things,
and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.
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.
4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered,
dishonoureth his head.
5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head
uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.
6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it
be a 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 image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.
9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the
10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because
of the angels.
11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the
woman without the man, in the Lord.
12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the
woman; but all things of God.
13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God
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 if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom,
neither the 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, I hear
that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.
19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are
approved may be made manifest among you.
20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to
eat the Lord's supper.
21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and
one is hungry, and another is drunken.
22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye
the church of God, and shame them that have not? what shall I say to you? shall
I praise you in this? I praise you not.
23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto
you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat:
this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when 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 till he come.
27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of
the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
28 But let 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 discerning the Lord's body.
30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many
31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
32 But when we are judged, we 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
34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not
together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.
