Now I praise youa because you remember me in all things and keep the traditions just as I delivered them to you.
But I want you to know that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of the woman,b and God is the head of Christ.
Every man who prays or prophesies with something on his head dishonors his head.
But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since that is one and the same as having her head shaved.
So if a woman's headc is not covered, her hair should be cut off. But if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, she should be covered.
A man, in fact, should not cover his head, because he is God's image and glory, but woman is man's glory.
