1 Corinthians 11


God's Order of Headship

1[2mimics 3of me 1Become], as even I of Christ! 2But I praise you, brethren, that in all things you have remembrance of me. And [4as 5I delivered 6to you 2the 3traditions 1Hold]. 3But I want you to know, that [6of every 7man 4the 5head 1the 2Christ 3is]; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. 4Every man praying or prophesying [2on 3his head 1having anything], disgraces his own head. 5And every woman praying or prophesying with uncovered head, disgraces her own head; [3one 1for 2it is] and the same as having been shaven. 6For if [2be not 3covered up 1a woman], also let her be shorn! But if it be shameful for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered up! 7[3a man 2indeed 1For] ought not to be covered of the head, [2an image 3and 4glory 5of God 1being]. But a woman [2a glory 3of man 1is]. 8For not is man of the woman, but the woman of man. 9 For [2was not 3created 1man] on account of the woman, but the woman on account of the man. 10Because of this [3ought 1the 2woman 5the authority 4to have] upon her head on account of the angels. 11Furthermore neither is man separate from woman, nor woman separate from man in the Lord. 12For as the woman is of the man, so also the man is through the woman; but all things are of God. 13Among you yourselves judge! Is it becoming [2woman 1for an uncovered] to pray to God? 14Or does not even nature itself teach you that a man indeed if should have long hair, [2a dishonor 3to him 1it is]? 15But a woman, if she should have long hair [2a glory 3to her 1is it]; for the hair of the head instead of a wrap is given to her. 16But if anyone thinks to be contentious, we [3such 4a custom 1do not 2have], nor the assemblies of God.

Conduct at the Lord's Supper

17But in this exhorting I do not praise you, for [2do not 4for 5the 6better 7but 8for 9the 10worse 1you 3come together]. 18[3first 2indeed 1For] in your coming together in assembly, I hear of splits [2among 3you 1existing], and partly I believe it. 19For must [2even 4among 5you 1sects 3be], that the ones approved [2apparent 1should become] among you? 20[2coming together 3then 1In your] in the same place, is it not [2the Lord's 3supper 1to eat]? 21But each [2his own 3supper 1first takes] in the eating, and one hungers, and another is intoxicated. 22For do [2houses 1you not have] for the eating and drinking? Or [2the 3assembly 4of God 1do you disdain], and disgrace the ones not having? What should I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I do not praise. 23For I took from the Lord what also I delivered up to you, that the Lord Jesus, in the night in which he was delivered up took bread; 24and having given thanks he broke it, and said, Take eat, this is my body [2for 3you 1being broken]; this do in my remembrance! 25Likewise also the cup, after having supper, saying, This cup [2the 3new 4covenant 1is] in my blood; this do as often as you should drink in my remembrance! 26For as often as you should eat this bread, and [2this cup 1should drink], the death of the Lord you announce until of which ever time he should come. 27So that who ever should eat this bread or should drink the cup of the Lord unworthily will be liable of the body and blood of the Lord. 28[2let 4prove 1But 3a man] himself, and thus [2of 3the 4bread 1let him eat], and [2of 3the 4cup 1drink]! 29For the one eating and drinking unworthily, [4judgment 5to himself 1eats 2and 3drinks], not discriminating the body of the Lord. 30Because of this [2among 3you 1many] are weak and ill, and [2gone to sleep 1a fit amount]. 31For if [2ourselves 1we examine 4not 3we should] be judged. 32But being judged by the Lord we are corrected, that [2not 4with 5the 6world 1we should 3be condemned]. 33So that, my brethren, coming together for the eating, [2one another 1let us look out for]! 34But if anyone hungers, [2in 3his house 1let him eat]! that [2not 4for 5judgment 1you should 3come together]. And the rest whenever I should come I shall set in order.
