Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ,1 and the head of the woman is man,2 and the head of Christ is God.34
Every man who prays or prophesies4 with his head covered dishonors his head.
And every woman who prays or prophesies5 with her head uncovered dishonors her head--it is just as though her head were shaved.66
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.
A man ought not to cover his head,a since he is the image7 and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.
For man did not come from woman, but woman from man;89
neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.910
For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head.
In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman.
For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.1013
Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
