1 Corinthians 11

NCV 1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. NIV 1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. NCV 2 I praise you because you remember me in everything, and you follow closely the teachings just as I gave them to you. NIV 2 I praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to the teachings, just as I passed them on to you. NCV 3 But I want you to understand this: The head of every man is Christ, the head of a woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God. NIV 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. NCV 4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered brings shame to his head. NIV 4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. NCV 5 But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered brings shame to her head. She is the same as a woman who has her head shaved. NIV 5 And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head--it is just as though her head were shaved. NCV 6 If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off. But since it is shameful for a woman to cut off her hair or to shave her head, she should cover her head. NIV 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. NCV 7 But a man should not cover his head, because he is the likeness and glory of God. But woman is man's glory. NIV 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. NCV 8 Man did not come from woman, but woman came from man. NIV 8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; NCV 9 And man was not made for woman, but woman was made for man. NIV 9 neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. NCV 10 So that is why a woman should have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. NIV 10 For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head. NCV 11 But in the Lord women are not independent of men, and men are not independent of women. NIV 11 In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. NCV 12 This is true because woman came from man, but also man is born from woman. But everything comes from God. NIV 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God. NCV 13 Decide this for yourselves: Is it right for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? NIV 13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? NCV 14 Even nature itself teaches you that wearing long hair is shameful for a man. NIV 14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, NCV 15 But long hair is a woman's glory. Long hair is given to her as a covering. NIV 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering. NCV 16 Some people may still want to argue about this, but I would add that neither we nor the churches of God have any other practice. NIV 16 If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice--nor do the churches of God. NCV 17 In the things I tell you now I do not praise you, because when you come together you do more harm than good. NIV 17 In the following directives I have no praise for you, for your meetings do more harm than good. NCV 18 First, I hear that when you meet together as a church you are divided, and I believe some of this. NIV 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. NCV 19 (It is necessary to have differences among you so that it may be clear which of you really have God's approval.) NIV 19 No doubt there have to be differences among you to show which of you have God's approval. NCV 20 When you come together, you are not really eating the Lord's Supper. NIV 20 When you come together, it is not the Lord's Supper you eat, NCV 21 This is because when you eat, each person eats without waiting for the others. Some people do not get enough to eat, while others have too much to drink. NIV 21 for as you eat, each of you goes ahead without waiting for anybody else. One remains hungry, another gets drunk. NCV 22 You can eat and drink in your own homes! You seem to think God's church is not important, and you embarrass those who are poor. What should I tell you? Should I praise you? I do not praise you for doing this. NIV 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! NCV 23 The teaching I gave you is the same teaching I received from the Lord: On the night when the Lord Jesus was handed over to be killed, he took bread NIV 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, NCV 24 and gave thanks for it. Then he broke the bread and said, "This is my body; it is for you. Do this to remember me." NIV 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." NCV 25 In the same way, after they ate, Jesus took the cup. He said, "This cup is the new agreement that is sealed with the blood of my death. When you drink this, do it to remember me." NIV 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." NCV 26 Every time you eat this bread and drink this cup you are telling others about the Lord's death until he comes. NIV 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes. NCV 27 So a person who eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in a way that is not worthy of it will be guilty of sinning against the body and the blood of the Lord. NIV 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. NCV 28 Look into your own hearts before you eat the bread and drink the cup, NIV 28 A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. NCV 29 because all who eat the bread and drink the cup without recognizing the body eat and drink judgment against themselves. NIV 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself. NCV 30 That is why many in your group are sick and weak, and many have died. NIV 30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep. NCV 31 But if we judged ourselves in the right way, God would not judge us. NIV 31 But if we judged ourselves, we would not come under judgment. NCV 32 But when the Lord judges us, he punishes us so that we will not be destroyed along with the world. NIV 32 When we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned with the world. NCV 33 So my brothers and sisters, when you come together to eat, wait for each other. NIV 33 So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for each other. NCV 34 Anyone who is too hungry should eat at home so that in meeting together you will not bring God's judgment on yourselves. I will tell you what to do about the other things when I come. NIV 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.
