11:1 Be ye followers of me, as I also am of Christ.
11:2 Now I praise you, brethren, that in all things you are mindful of me: and keep my ordinances as I have delivered them to you.
11:3 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.
11:4 Every man praying or prophesying with his head covered, disgraceth his head.
11:5 But every woman praying or prophesying with her head not covered, disgraceth her head: for it is all one as if she were shaven.
11:6 For if a woman be not covered, let her be shorn. But if it be a shame to a woman to be shorn or made bald, let her cover her head.
11:7 The man indeed ought not to cover his head, because he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of the man.
11:8 For the man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man.
11:9 For the man was not created for the woman, but the woman for the man.
11:10 Therefore ought the woman to have a power over her head, because of the angels.
11:11 But yet neither is the man without the woman, nor the woman without the man, in the Lord.
11:12 For as the woman is of the man, so also is the man by the woman: but all things of God.
11:13 You yourselves judge: doth it become a woman, to pray unto God uncovered?
11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that a man indeed, if he nourish his hair, it is a shame unto him?
11:15 But if a woman nourish her hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her for a covering.
11:16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, nor the church of God.
11:17 Now this I ordain: not praising you, that you come together not for the better, but for the worse.
11:18 For first of all I hear that when you come together in the church, there are schisms among you; and in part I believe it.
11:19 For there must be also heresies: that they also, who are approved, may be made manifest among you.
11:20 When you come therefore together into one place, it is not now to eat the Lord's supper.
11:21 For every one taketh before his own supper to eat. And one indeed is hungry and another is drunk.
11:22 What, have you not houses to eat and to drink in? Or despise ye the church of God; and put them to shame that have not ? What shall I say to you? Do I praise you? In this I praise you not.
11:23 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.
11:24 And giving thanks, broke, and said: Take ye, and eat: this is my body, which shall be delivered for you: this do for the commemoration of me.
11:25 In like manner also the chalice, after he had supped, saying: This chalice is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as often as you shall drink, for the commemoration of me.
11:26 For as often as you shall eat this bread, and drink the chalice, you shall shew the death of the Lord, until he come.
11:27 Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord.
11:28 But let a man prove himself: and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of the chalice.
11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord.
11:30 Therefore are there many inform and weak among you, and many sleep.
11:31 But if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
11:32 But whilst we are judged, we are chastised by the Lord, that we be not condemned with this world.
11:33 Wherefore, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another.
11:34 If any man be hungry, let him eat at home; that you come not together unto judgment. And the rest I will set in order, when I come.
