1: Be ye imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ. 2: Now I praise you that ye remember me in all things, and hold fast the traditions, even 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, dishonoreth his head. 5: But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonoreth her head; for it is one and the same thing as if she were shaven. 6: For if a woman is not veiled, let her also be shorn: but if it is a shame to a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be veiled. 7: For a man indeed ought not to have his head veiled, 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: for neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man: 10: for this cause ought the woman to have [a sign of] authority on her head, because of the angels. 11: Nevertheless, neither is the woman without the man, nor the man without the woman, in the Lord. 12: For as the woman is of the man, so is the man also by the woman; but all things are of God. 13: Judge ye in yourselves: is it seemly that a woman pray unto God unveiled? 14: Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a dishonor to 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 seemeth to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God. 17: But in giving you this charge, 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 divisions exist among you; and I partly believe it. 19: For there must be also factions among you, that they that are approved may be made manifest among you. 20: When therefore ye assemble yourselves together, it is not possible to eat the Lord's supper: 21: for in your eating each 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 put them to shame that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you? In this I praise you not. 23: For I received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was betrayed took bread; 24: and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, This is my body, which is for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25: In like manner also the cup, after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do, as often as ye drink [it], in remembrance of me. 26: For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink the cup, ye proclaim the Lord's death till he come. 27: Wherefore whosoever shall eat the bread or drink the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. 28: But let a man prove himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup. 29: For he that eateth and drinketh, eateth and drinketh judgment unto himself, if he discern not the body. 30: For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep. 31: But if we discerned ourselves, we should not be judged. 32: But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world. 33: Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, wait one for another. 34: If any man is hungry, let him eat at home; that your coming together be not unto judgment. And the rest will I set in order whensoever I come.
