but every wifea who prays or 1prophesies 2with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same 3as if her head were shaven.
For if a wife will not cover her head, then she should cut her hair short. But since it is disgraceful for a wife to cut off her hair or shave her head, let her cover her head.
For a man ought not to cover his head, since 4he is the image and glory of God, but 5woman is the glory of man.
For 6man was not made from woman, but woman from man.
Neither was man created for woman, but 7woman for man.
That is why a wife ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels.b
