1 Corinthians 11:10

Overview - 1 Corinthians 11
He reproves them, because in holy assemblies,
their men prayed with their heads covered,
and women with their heads uncovered;
17 and because generally their meetings were not for the better, but for the worse;
21 as, namely, in profaning with their own feast the Lord's supper.
25 Lastly, he calls them to the first institution thereof.

1 Corinthians 11:10  (King James Version)
For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.
 


power
That is, a covering in sign that she is under the power of her husband. [Exousia ,] appears here to be used for the sign or token of being under power or authority, that is, a veil, as Theophylact, (Ecumenius, and Photius) explain; and so one MS. of the Vulgate, the Sixtine edition, and some copies of the Itala, have {velamen.}
