Be you followersG3402 of me, evenG2531 as I alsoG2504 am of Christ.G5547
NowG1161 I praiseG1867 you, brothers,G80 that you rememberG3415 me in allG3956 things, and keepG2722 the ordinances,G3862 as I deliveredG3860 them to you.
But I wouldG2309 have you know,G1492 that the headG2776 of everyG3956 manG435 is Christ;G5547 and the headG2776 of the womanG1135 is the man;G435 and the headG2776 of ChristG5547 is God.G2316
EveryG3956 manG435 prayingG4336 orG2228 prophesying,G4395 havingG2192 his headG2776 covered,G2596 dishonorsG2617 his head.G2776
But everyG3956 womanG1135 that praysG4336 orG2228 prophesiesG4395 with her headG2776 uncoveredG177 dishonorsG2617 her head:G2776 for that is evenG2532 all oneG1520 as if she were shaven.G3587
For ifG1487 the womanG1135 be not covered,G2619 let her alsoG2532 be shorn:G2751 but ifG1487 it be a shameG149 for a womanG1135 to be shornG2751 orG2228 shaven,G3587 let her be covered.G2619
For a manG435 indeedG3303 oughtG3784 not to coverG2619 his head,G2776 for as much as he is the imageG1504 and gloryG1391 of God:G2316 but the womanG1135 is the gloryG1391 of the man.G435
For the manG435 is not of the woman:G1135 but the womanG1135 of the man.G435
NeitherG2542 G3756 was the manG435 createdG2936 for the woman;G1135 but the womanG1135 for the man.G435
For thisG5124 causeG1223 oughtG3784 the womanG1135 to haveG2192 powerG1849 onG1909 her headG2776 becauseG1223 of the angels.G32
NeverthelessG4133 neitherG3777 is the manG435 withoutG5565 the woman,G1135 neitherG3777 the womanG1135 withoutG5565 the man,G435 in the Lord.G2962
For as the womanG1135 is of the man,G435 even soG3779 is the manG435 alsoG2532 by the woman;G1135 but allG3956 things of God.G2316
JudgeG2919 in yourselves:G5213 G846 is it comelyG4241 that a womanG1135 prayG4336 to GodG2316 uncovered?G177
Does not evenG3761 natureG5449 itselfG846 teachG1321 you, that, ifG1437 a manG435 have longG2863 hair,G2863 it is a shameG819 to him?
But ifG1437 a womanG1135 have longG2863 hair,G2863 it is a gloryG1391 to her: for her hairG2864 is givenG1325 her for a covering.G4018
But ifG1487 anyG5100 man seemG1380 to be contentious,G5380 we haveG2192 noG3756 suchG5108 custom,G4914 neitherG3761 the churchesG1577 of God.G2316
NowG1161 in thisG5124 that I declareG3853 to you I praiseG1867 you not, that you comeG4905 togetherG4905 not for the better,G2909 but for the worse.G2276
For firstG4412 of all, when you comeG4905 togetherG4905 in the church,G1577 I hearG191 that there be divisionsG4978 amongG1722 you; and I partlyG3313 G5100 believeG4100 it.
For there mustG1163 be alsoG2532 heresiesG139 amongG1722 you, that they which are approvedG1384 may be madeG1096 manifestG5318 amongG1722 you.
When you comeG4905 togetherG4905 thereforeG3767 intoG1909 oneG3588 G846 place, this is not to eatG5315 the Lord'sG2960 supper.G1173
For in eatingG5315 everyG1538 one takesG4301 beforeG4301 other his ownG2398 supper:G1173 and oneG3739 G3303 is hungry,G3983 and anotherG3739 is drunken.G3184
What?G1063 haveG2192 you not housesG3614 to eatG2068 and to drinkG4095 in? orG2228 despiseG2706 you the churchG1577 of God,G2316 and shameG2617 them that haveG2192 not? WhatG5101 shall I sayG2036 to you? shall I praiseG1867 you in this?G5129 I praiseG1867 you not.
For I haveG2192 receivedG3880 of the LordG2962 that whichG3739 alsoG2532 I deliveredG3860 to you, That the LordG2962 JesusG2424 the sameG846 nightG3571 in whichG3739 he was betrayedG3860 tookG2983 bread:G740
And when he had given thanks,G2168 he brokeG2806 it, and said,G2036 Take,G2983 eat:G5315 thisG5124 is my body,G4983 whichG3588 is brokenG2806 for you: thisG5124 doG4160 in remembranceG364 of me.
AfterG5615 the sameG5615 mannerG5615 alsoG2532 he took the cup,G4221 whenG3326 he had supped,G1172 saying,G3004 ThisG5124 cupG4221 is the newG2537 testamentG1242 in my blood:G129 thisG5124 doG4160 you, as oftG3740 as you drinkG4095 it, in remembranceG364 of me.
For as oftenG3740 as you eatG2068 thisG5126 bread,G740 and drinkG4095 thisG5124 cup,G4221 you do showG2605 the Lord'sG2962 deathG2288 tillG891 G3757 he come.G2064
WhyG5620 whoeverG3739 G302 shall eatG2068 thisG5126 bread,G740 and drinkG4095 thisG5126 cupG4221 of the Lord,G2962 unworthily,G371 shall be guiltyG1777 of the bodyG4983 and bloodG129 of the Lord.G2962
But let a manG444 examineG1381 himself,G1438 and soG3779 let him eatG2068 of that bread,G740 and drinkG4095 of that cup.G4221
For he that eatsG2068 and drinksG4095 unworthily,G371 eatsG2068 and drinksG4095 damnationG2917 to himself,G1438 not discerningG1252 the Lord'sG2962 body.G4983
For thisG5124 causeG1223 manyG4183 are weakG770 and sicklyG732 amongG1722 you, and manyG2425 sleep.G2837
For ifG1487 we would judgeG1252 ourselves,G1438 we should not be judged.G2919
But when we are judged,G2919 we are chastenedG3811 of the Lord,G2962 that we should not be condemnedG2632 with the world.G2889
Why,G5620 my brothers,G80 when you comeG4905 togetherG4905 to eat,G5315 tarryG1551 oneG240 for another.G240
And ifG1487 anyG5100 manG444 hunger,G3983 let him eatG2068 atG1722 home;G3624 that you comeG4905 not togetherG4905 to condemnation.G2917 And the restG3062 will I setG1299 in orderG1299 whenG5613 I come.G2064
