King James Version w/ Apocrypha (KJVA) New International Version (NIV)
1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.
2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, 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 Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; 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 his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head.
5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were 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 the woman be not covered , let her also be shorn : but if it be 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.
