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.
