Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Followers of me become ye, as I also [am] of Christ. 1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.
2 And I praise you, brethren, that in all things ye remember me, and according as I did deliver to you, the deliverances ye keep, 2 I praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to the teachings, just as I passed them on to you.
3 and I wish you to know that of every man the head is the Christ, and the head of a woman is the husband, and the head of Christ 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 the head covered, doth dishonour his head, 4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head.
5 and every woman praying or prophesying with the head uncovered, doth dishonour her own head, for it is one and the same thing with her being shaven, 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 -- then let her be shorn, and if [it is] a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven -- 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 cover the head, being the image and glory of God, and a woman is the glory of a 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 a man is not of a woman, but a woman [is] of a man, 8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man;
9 for a man also was not created because of the woman, but a woman because of the man; 9 neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.
10 because of this the woman ought to have [a token of] authority upon the head, because of the messengers; 10 For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head.
11 but neither [is] a man apart from a woman, nor a woman apart from a man, 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] of the man, so also the man [is] through the woman, and the all things [are] of God. 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.
13 In your own selves judge ye; is it seemly for a woman uncovered to pray to God? 13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
14 doth not even nature itself teach you, that if a man indeed have long hair, a dishonour it is 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 and a woman, if she have long hair, a glory it is to her, because the hair instead of a covering hath been given to her; 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.
16 and if any one doth think to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the assemblies of God. 16 If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice--nor do the churches of God.
17 And this declaring, I give no praise, because not for the better, but for the worse ye come together; 17 In the following directives I have no praise for you, for your meetings do more harm than good.
18 for first, indeed, ye coming together in an assembly, I hear of divisions being among you, and partly I 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 it behoveth sects also to be among you, that those approved may become manifest among you; 19 No doubt there have to be differences among you to show which of you have God's approval.
20 ye, then, coming together at the same place -- it is not to eat the Lord's supper; 20 When you come together, it is not the Lord's Supper you eat,
21 for each his own supper doth take before in the eating, and one is hungry, and another is drunk; 21 for as you eat, each of you goes ahead without waiting for anybody else. One remains hungry, another gets drunk.
22 why, have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or the assembly of God do ye despise, and shame those not having? what may I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I do not praise! 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 -- I received from the Lord that which also I did deliver to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was delivered up, 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 and having given thanks, he brake, and said, `Take ye, eat ye, this is my body, that for you is being broken; this do ye -- to the remembrance 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 like manner also the cup after the supping, saying, `This cup is the new covenant in my blood; this do ye, as often as ye may drink [it] -- to the remembrance 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 ye may eat this bread, and this cup may drink, the death of the Lord ye do shew forth -- till he may come; 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
27 so that whoever may eat this bread or may drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, guilty he shall be of the body and 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 and let a man be proving himself, and so of the bread let him eat, and of the cup let him drink; 28 A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.
29 for he who is eating and drinking unworthily, judgment to himself he doth eat and drink -- not discerning the body of the Lord. 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself.
30 Because of this, among you many [are] weak and sickly, and sleep do many; 30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep.
31 for if ourselves we were discerning, we would not be being judged, 31 But if we judged ourselves, we would not come under judgment.
32 and being judged by the Lord, we are chastened, that with the world we may not be condemned; 32 When we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned with the world.
33 so then, my brethren, coming together to eat, for one another wait ye; 33 So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for each other.
34 and if any one is hungry, at home let him eat, that to judgment ye may not come together; and the rest, whenever I may come, I shall arrange. 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.
