1 Corinthians 11

BLB(i) 1 Be imitators of me, as I also am of Christ. 2 Now I commend you that you have remembered me in all things, and you are keeping the teachings as I delivered to you. 3 But I want you to know that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of the woman, and the head of Christ is God. 4 Every man praying or prophesying having anything on his head dishonors his head. 5 And every woman praying or prophesying with the head uncovered dishonors her head; for it is one and the same with having been shaven. 6 For if a woman does not cover her head, also let her be shorn. And if it is disgraceful to a woman to be shorn or to be shaven, let her cover her head. 7 For truly a man ought not to cover the head, being the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. 8 For man is not of woman, but woman of man. 9 For truly man was not created on account of the woman, but woman on account of the man. 10 Because of this, the woman ought to have authority on the head, on account of the angels. 11 However, neither is woman separate from man, nor man separate from woman in the Lord. 12 For just as the woman is of the man, so also the man is by the woman. And all things are of God. 13 Judge for yourselves: Is it becoming for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him, 15 but if a woman has long hair, it is to her glory? For the long hair instead of a covering is given to her. 16 Now if anyone is inclined to be contentious, we have no such practice, nor do the churches of God. 17 Now in this instructing, I do not praise you, because you come together not for the better, but for the worse. 18 For first indeed, of you coming together in an assembly, I hear there to be divisions among you, and in part I believe it. 19 For also it behooves there to be factions among you, so that also the approved should become evident among you. 20 Therefore, of you coming together in one place, it is not to eat the Lord’s supper. 21 For in eating, one takes first the own supper. And indeed this one is hungry, but that one is drunken. 22 What! Have you no houses in which to eat and to drink? Or do you despise the church of God and put to shame those having nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I do not praise you! 23 For I received from the Lord that which also I delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed, took bread, 24 and having given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 Likewise also the cup after having supped, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you might drink it, in remembrance of Me.” 26 For as often as you may eat this bread and may drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He should come. 27 Therefore whoever should eat the bread or should drink the cup of the Lord unworthily will be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and in this manner let him eat of the bread, and let him drink of the cup. 29 For the one eating and drinking not discerning the body, eats and drinks judgment on himself. 30 Because of this, many are weak and sick among you, and many are fallen asleep. 31 For if we were judging ourselves, we would not come under judgment. 32 But being judged by the Lord, we are disciplined, so that we should not be condemned with the world. 33 So then, my brothers, coming together in order to eat, wait for one another. 34 If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, so that you might not come together for judgment; and I will set in order the other things as soon as I might come.
