Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Be imitators of me, even as I also am of Messiah. 1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.
2 Now I praise you, brothers, that you remember me in all things, and hold firm the traditions, even as I delivered them to you. 2 I praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to the teachings, just as I passed them on to you.
3 But I would have you know that the head of every man is Messiah, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Messiah is God. 3 Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.
4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head. 4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head.
5 But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonors her head. For it is one and the same thing as if she were shaved. 5 And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head--it is just as though her head were shaved.
6 For if a woman is not covered, let her also be shorn. But if it is shameful for a woman to be shorn or shaved, let her be covered. 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 For a man indeed ought not to have his head covered, because he is the image and glory of God, but the woman is the glory of the man. 7 A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.
8 For man is not from woman, but woman from man; 8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man;
9 for neither was man created for the woman, but woman for the man. 9 neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.
10 For this cause the woman ought to have authority on her head, because of the angels. 10 For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head.
11 Nevertheless, neither is the woman independent of the man, nor the man independent of the woman, in the Lord. 11 In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman.
12 For as the woman is from the man, so is the man also by the woman; but all things are from God. 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.
13 Judge for yourselves. Is it appropriate that a woman pray to God unveiled? 13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
14 Doesn't even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him? 14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him,
15 But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her, for her hair is given to her for a covering. 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.
16 But if any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither do God's assemblies. 16 If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice--nor do the churches of God.
17 But in giving you this command, I don't praise you, that you come together not for the better but for the worse. 17 In the following directives I have no praise for you, for your meetings do more harm than good.
18 For first of all, when you come together in the assembly, I hear that divisions exist among you, and I partly believe it. 18 In the first place, I hear that when you come together as a church, there are divisions among you, and to some extent I believe it.
19 For there also must be factions among you, that those who are approved may be revealed among you. 19 No doubt there have to be differences among you to show which of you have God's approval.
20 When therefore you assemble yourselves together, it is not possible to eat the Lord's supper. 20 When you come together, it is not the Lord's Supper you eat,
21 For in your eating each one takes his own supper before others. One is hungry, and another is drunken. 21 for as you eat, each of you goes ahead without waiting for anybody else. One remains hungry, another gets drunk.
22 What, don't you have houses to eat and to drink in? Or do you despise God's assembly, and put them to shame who don't have? What shall I tell you? Shall I praise you? In this I don't praise you. 22 Don't you have homes to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and humiliate those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you for this? Certainly not!
23 For I received from the Lord that which also I delivered to you, that the Lord Yeshua on the night in which he was betrayed took bread. 23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread,
24 When he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "Take, eat. This is my body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of me." 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me."
25 In the same way he also took the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of me." 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me."
26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes. 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks the Lord's cup in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. 27 Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord.
28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup. 28 A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.
29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn't discern the Lord's body. 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself.
30 For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep. 30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep.
31 For if we discerned ourselves, we wouldn't be judged. 31 But if we judged ourselves, we would not come under judgment.
32 But when we are judged, we are punished by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world. 32 When we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned with the world.
33 Therefore, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait one for another. 33 So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for each other.
34 But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, that your coming together may not be to judgment. The rest I will set in order whenever I come. 34 If anyone is hungry, he should eat at home, so that when you meet together it may not result in judgment. And when I come I will give further directions.
