1: Followers of me become ye, as I also [am] of Christ. 2: And I praise you, brethren, that in all things ye remember me, and according as I did deliver to you, the deliverances ye keep, 3: and I wish you to know that of every man the head is the Christ, and the head of a woman is the husband, and the head of Christ is God. 4: Every man praying or prophesying, having the head covered, doth dishonour his head, 5: and every woman praying or prophesying with the head uncovered, doth dishonour her own head, for it is one and the same thing with her being shaven, 6: for if a woman is not covered -- then let her be shorn, and if [it is] a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven -- let her be covered; 7: for a man, indeed, ought not to cover the head, being the image and glory of God, and a woman is the glory of a man, 8: for a man is not of a woman, but a woman [is] of a man, 9: for a man also was not created because of the woman, but a woman because of the man; 10: because of this the woman ought to have [a token of] authority upon the head, because of the messengers; 11: but neither [is] a man apart from a woman, nor a woman apart from a man, in the Lord, 12: for as the woman [is] of the man, so also the man [is] through the woman, and the all things [are] of God. 13: In your own selves judge ye; is it seemly for a woman uncovered to pray to God? 14: doth not even nature itself teach you, that if a man indeed have long hair, a dishonour it is to him? 15: and a woman, if she have long hair, a glory it is to her, because the hair instead of a covering hath been given to her; 16: and if any one doth think to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the assemblies of God. 17: And this declaring, I give no praise, because not for the better, but for the worse ye come together; 18: for first, indeed, ye coming together in an assembly, I hear of divisions being among you, and partly I believe [it], 19: for it behoveth sects also to be among you, that those approved may become manifest among you; 20: ye, then, coming together at the same place -- it is not to eat the Lord's supper; 21: for each his own supper doth take before in the eating, and one is hungry, and another is drunk; 22: why, have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or the assembly of God do ye despise, and shame those not having? what may I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I do not praise! 23: For I -- I received from the Lord that which also I did deliver to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was delivered up, took bread, 24: and having given thanks, he brake, and said, 'Take ye, eat ye, this is my body, that for you is being broken; this do ye -- to the remembrance of me.' 25: In like manner also the cup after the supping, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant in my blood; this do ye, as often as ye may drink [it] -- to the remembrance of me;' 26: for as often as ye may eat this bread, and this cup may drink, the death of the Lord ye do shew forth -- till he may come; 27: so that whoever may eat this bread or may drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, guilty he shall be of the body and blood of the Lord: 28: and let a man be proving himself, and so of the bread let him eat, and of the cup let him drink; 29: for he who is eating and drinking unworthily, judgment to himself he doth eat and drink -- not discerning the body of the Lord. 30: Because of this, among you many [are] weak and sickly, and sleep do many; 31: for if ourselves we were discerning, we would not be being judged, 32: and being judged by the Lord, we are chastened, that with the world we may not be condemned; 33: so then, my brethren, coming together to eat, for one another wait ye; 34: and if any one is hungry, at home let him eat, that to judgment ye may not come together; and the rest, whenever I may come, I shall arrange.
