1 Corinthians 11
1 Corinthians 11:1
Be imitators of me, even as I also am of Messiah.
1 Corinthians 11:2
Now I praise you, brothers, that you remember me in all things, and hold firm the traditions, even as I delivered them to you.
1 Corinthians 11:3
But I would have you know that the head of every man is Messiah, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Messiah is God.
1 Corinthians 11:4
Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head.
1 Corinthians 11:5
But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonors her head. For it is one and the same thing as if she were shaved.
1 Corinthians 11:6
For if a woman is not covered, let her also be shorn. But if it is shameful for a woman to be shorn or shaved, let her be covered.
1 Corinthians 11:7
For a man indeed ought not to have his head covered, because he is the image and glory of God, but the woman is the glory of the man.
1 Corinthians 11:8
For man is not from woman, but woman from man;
1 Corinthians 11:9
for neither was man created for the woman, but woman for the man.
1 Corinthians 11:10
For this cause the woman ought to have authority on her head, because of the angels.
1 Corinthians 11:11
Nevertheless, neither is the woman independent of the man, nor the man independent of the woman, in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 11:12
For as woman came from man, so a man also comes through a woman; but all things are from God.
1 Corinthians 11:13
Judge for yourselves. Is it appropriate that a woman pray to God unveiled?
1 Corinthians 11:14
Doesn’t even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him?
1 Corinthians 11:15
But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her, for her hair is given to her for a covering.
1 Corinthians 11:16
But if any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither do Gods assemblies.
1 Corinthians 11:17
But in giving you this command, I dont praise you, that you come together not for the better but for the worse.
1 Corinthians 11:18
For first of all, when you come together in the assembly, I hear that divisions exist among you, and I partly believe it.
1 Corinthians 11:19
For there also must be factions among you, that those who are approved may be revealed among you.
1 Corinthians 11:20
When therefore you assemble yourselves together, it is not the Lords supper that you eat.
1 Corinthians 11:21
For in your eating each one takes his own supper first. One is hungry, and another is drunken.
1 Corinthians 11:22
What, don’t you have houses to eat and to drink in? Or do you despise Gods assembly, and put them to shame who dont have? What shall I tell you? Shall I praise you? In this I don’t praise you.
1 Corinthians 11:23
For I received from the Lord that which also I delivered to you, that the Lord Yeshua on the night in which he was betrayed took bread.
1 Corinthians 11:24
When he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, Take, eat. This is my body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of me.
1 Corinthians 11:25
In the same way he also took the cup, after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of me.
1 Corinthians 11:26
For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lords death until he comes.
1 Corinthians 11:27
Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks the Lords cup in a way unworthy of the Lord will be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
1 Corinthians 11:28
But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup.
1 Corinthians 11:29
For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy way eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn’t discern the Lords body.
1 Corinthians 11:30
For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep.
1 Corinthians 11:31
For if we discerned ourselves, we wouldnt be judged.
1 Corinthians 11:32
But when we are judged, we are punished by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
1 Corinthians 11:33
Therefore, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another.
1 Corinthians 11:34
But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest your coming together be for judgment. The rest I will set in order whenever I come.
