King James Version1 Corinthians11

1 Corinthians

1 Be ye fol­low­ers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye re­mem­ber me in all things, and keep the or­di­nances, as I de­liv­ered them to you. 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. 4 Ev­ery man pray­ing or proph­esy­ing, hav­ing his head cov­ered, dis­hon­oureth his head. 5 But ev­ery wom­an that prayeth or proph­e­si­eth with her head un­cov­ered dis­hon­oureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 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. 7 For a man in­deed ought not to cov­er his head, foras­much as he is the im­age and glo­ry of God: but the wom­an is the glo­ry of the man. 8 For the man is not of the wom­an; but the wom­an of the man. 9 Nei­ther was the man cre­at­ed for the wom­an; but the wom­an for the man. 10 For this cause ought the wom­an to have pow­er on her head be­cause of the an­gels. 11 Nev­er­the­less nei­ther is the man with­out the wom­an, nei­ther the wom­an with­out the man, in the Lord. 12 For as the wom­an is of the man, even so is the man also by the wom­an; but all things of God. 13 Judge in your­selves: is it come­ly that a wom­an pray unto God un­cov­ered? 14 Doth not even na­ture it­self teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 15 But if a wom­an have long hair, it is a glo­ry to her: for her hair is giv­en her for a cov­er­ing. 16 But if any man seem to be con­tentious, we have no such cus­tom, nei­ther the church­es of God. 17 Now in this that I de­clare un­to you I praise you not, that ye come to­geth­er not for the bet­ter, but for the worse. 18 For first of all, when ye come to­geth­er in the church, I hear that there be di­vi­sions among you; and I part­ly be­lieve it. 19 For there must be also here­sies among you, that they which are ap­proved may be made man­i­fest among you. 20 When ye come to­geth­er there­fore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's sup­per. 21 For in eat­ing ev­ery one taketh be­fore other his own sup­per: and one is hun­gry, and an­oth­er is drunk­en. 22 What? have ye not hous­es to eat and to drink in? or de­spise ye 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. 23 For I have re­ceived of the Lord that which also I de­liv­ered unto you, That the Lord Je­sus the same night in which he was be­trayed took bread: 24 And when he had giv­en thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is bro­ken for you: this do in re­mem­brance of me. 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 ye, as oft as ye drink it, in re­mem­brance of me. 26 For as of­ten as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. 27 Where­fore whoso­ev­er shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, un­worthi­ly, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man ex­am­ine him­self, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drin­keth un­worthi­ly, eateth and drin­keth damna­tion to him­self, not dis­cern­ing the Lord's body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sick­ly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge our­selves, we should not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chas­tened of the Lord, that we should not be con­demned with the world. 33 Where­fore, my brethren, when ye come to­geth­er to eat, tar­ry one for an­oth­er. 34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not to­geth­er unto con­dem­na­tion. And the rest will I set in or­der when I come.
