1 Corinthians 11:1-11 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
1 Follow my example,1 as I follow the example of Christ.2

Propriety in Worship

2 I praise you3 for remembering me in everything4 and for holding to the teachings,a just as I passed them on to you.5 3 Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ,6 and the head of the woman is man,7 and the head of Christ is God.8 4 Every man who prays or prophesies9 with his head covered dishonors his head. 5 And every woman who prays or prophesies10 with her head uncovered dishonors her head--it is just as though her head were shaved.11 6 If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. 7 A man ought not to cover his head,b since he is the image12 and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. 8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man;13 9 neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.14 10 For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head. 11 In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman.
