    1 Corinthians 11:1 Be you followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
    1 Corinthians 11:2 Now I praise you, brothers, that you remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.
    1 Corinthians 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.
    1 Corinthians 11:4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head.
    1 Corinthians 11:5 But every woman that prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.
    1 Corinthians 11:6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.
    1 Corinthians 11:7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, for as much as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
    1 Corinthians 11:8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.
    1 Corinthians 11:9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
    1 Corinthians 11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.
    1 Corinthians 11:11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.
    1 Corinthians 11:12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.
    1 Corinthians 11:13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray to God uncovered?
    1 Corinthians 11:14 Does not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame to him?
    1 Corinthians 11:15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.
    1 Corinthians 11:16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
    1 Corinthians 11:17 Now in this that I declare to you I praise you not, 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 church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.
    1 Corinthians 11:19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.
    1 Corinthians 11:20 When you come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper.
    1 Corinthians 11:21 For in eating every one takes before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
    1 Corinthians 11:22 What? have you not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise you the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not.
    1 Corinthians 11:23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered to you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
    1 Corinthians 11:24 And when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
    1 Corinthians 11:25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do you, as oft as you drink it, in remembrance of me.
    1 Corinthians 11:26 For as often as you eat this bread, and drink this cup, you do show the Lord's death till he come.
    1 Corinthians 11:27 Why whoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
    1 Corinthians 11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
    1 Corinthians 11:29 For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
    1 Corinthians 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
    1 Corinthians 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
    1 Corinthians 11:32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
    1 Corinthians 11:33 Why, my brothers, when you come together to eat, tarry one for another.
    1 Corinthians 11:34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that you come not together to condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.
