1 Corinthians 11

1 Become* imitators of me, just-as I also am of Christ.
2 Now I praise you* brethren that you* have been reminded of me in all things and are holding-onto the traditions, just-as I gave them to you*. 3 But I wish you* to know, that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of the Christ is God. 4 Every man praying or prophesying, having something on his head, shames his head. 5 But every woman praying or prophesying with the head unveiled shames her head; for* it is one and the same thing, as if she had been shaved. 6 For* if a woman is not veiling herself, let her hair also be sheared, but if it is shameful to a woman to be sheared or shaved, let her be veiled. 7 For* a man indeed ought not to have his head veiled, being* that he is the image and glory of God, but woman is the glory of the man. 8 For* the man is not from the woman, but the woman is from the man; 9 for* neither was the man created because of the woman, but the woman because of the man. 10 The woman ought to have a sign of authority upon her head because of this and because of the messengers. 11 However, neither is the man separate from the woman, nor the woman separate from the man, in the Lord. 12 For* just-like the woman is from the man, so the man is also through the woman, but all things are from God. 13 Judge* among you* yourselves. Is it suitable that a woman pray to God unveiled? 14 Or is not even nature itself teaching you*, that, if a man indeed has long-hair, it is a dishonor to him? 15 But if a woman has long-hair, it is a glory to her, because her hair has been given to her instead of a head dressing. 16 But if anyone seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, nor the congregations* of God. 17 But in commanding this, I am not praising you*, because you* are not coming together *for the best but *for the worst. 18 For* indeed, first of all, when you* are coming together in the congregation*, I am hearing that splits exist in you*, and I believe some part of it. 19 For* it is essential for sects to be also among you*, in order that those who are the approved ones may become apparent among you*. 20 Therefore, while coming together in the same place, it is not possible to eat the Lord's supper; 21 for* while you* ate, each one is taking his own supper before others can, and one is hungry and another is drunken. 22 For* do you* not have houses *that* you* should eat and drink in? Or do you* despise the congregation* of God and are shaming those who have nothing? What should I say to you*? Should I praise you*? I should not praise you* in this.

{Mar 14:22-25 & Mat 26:26-29 & Luk 22:19-20, 1Co 11:23-26.} 23 For* I received from the Lord what I also gave to you*, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was being given up, took bread; 24 and having given-thanks, he broke it and said, Take*, eat*. This is my body, which is being broken on your* behalf. Practice* this in my remembrance. 25 Likewise* also the cup, after the supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant* in my blood. Practice* this in my remembrance whenever you* drink it. 26 For* whenever you* eat this bread and drink this cup, you* are proclaiming the Lord's death till the time he should come.
27 So-then whoever eats this bread or drinks the cup of the Lord, unworthily of the Lord, will be liable to the body and of the blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man test himself and so let him eat from the bread and let him drink out of the cup. 29 For* he who unworthily eats and drinks, is eating and drinking condemnation to himself, if he is not discerning the body of the Lord. 30 Because of this, many among you* are weak and sick and a considerable number are falling-asleep {i.e. are dead} . 31 For* if we were discerning ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But being judged, we are disciplined by the Lord, in order that we should not be condemned together with the world. 33 So-then my brethren, after you* come together *that* you should eat, wait* for one another. 34 But if anyone is hungry, let him eat in his own house; in order that you* may not come together *for condemnation. Now I will be commanding accordingly the rest as I may come.
