1 Corinthians 11

NLT 1 And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ. NIV 1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. NLT 2 I am so glad that you always keep me in your thoughts, and that you are following the teachings I passed on 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. NLT 3 But there is one thing I want you to know: The head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is 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. NLT 4 A man dishonors his head if he covers his head while praying or prophesying. NIV 4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. NLT 5 But a woman dishonors her head if she prays or prophesies without a covering on her head, for this is the same as shaving her head. 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. NLT 6 Yes, if she refuses to wear a head covering, she should cut off all her hair! But since it is shameful for a woman to have her hair cut or her head shaved, she should wear a covering. 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. NLT 7 A man should not wear anything on his head when worshiping, for man is made in God’s image and reflects God’s glory. And woman reflects 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. NLT 8 For the first man didn’t come from woman, but the first woman came from man. NIV 8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; NLT 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. NLT 10 For this reason, and because the angels are watching, a woman should wear a covering on her head to show she is under authority. NIV 10 For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head. NLT 11 But among the Lord’s people, 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. NLT 12 For although the first woman came from man, every other man was born from a woman, and everything comes from God. NIV 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God. NLT 13 Judge for yourselves. Is it right for a woman to pray to God in public without covering her head? NIV 13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? NLT 14 Isn’t it obvious that it’s disgraceful for a man to have long hair? NIV 14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, NLT 15 And isn’t long hair a woman’s pride and joy? For it has been 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. NLT 16 But if anyone wants to argue about this, I simply say that we have no other custom than this, and neither do God’s other churches. NIV 16 If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice--nor do the churches of God. NLT 17 But in the following instructions, I cannot praise you. For it sounds as if more harm than good is done when you meet together. NIV 17 In the following directives I have no praise for you, for your meetings do more harm than good. NLT 18 First, I hear that there are divisions among you when you meet as a church, and to some extent I believe it. 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. NLT 19 But, of course, there must be divisions among you so that you who have God’s approval will be recognized! NIV 19 No doubt there have to be differences among you to show which of you have God's approval. NLT 20 When you meet together, you are not really interested in the Lord’s Supper. NIV 20 When you come together, it is not the Lord's Supper you eat, NLT 21 For some of you hurry to eat your own meal without sharing with others. As a result, some go hungry while others get drunk. NIV 21 for as you eat, each of you goes ahead without waiting for anybody else. One remains hungry, another gets drunk. NLT 22 What? Don’t you have your own homes for eating and drinking? Or do you really want to disgrace God’s church and shame the poor? What am I supposed to say? Do you want me to praise you? Well, I certainly will not praise you for 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! NLT 23 For I pass on to you what I received from the Lord himself. On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some 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, NLT 24 and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and said, “This is my body, which is given 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." NLT 25 In the same way, he took the cup of wine after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood. Do this to remember me as often as you drink it.” 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." NLT 26 For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are announcing the Lord’s death until he comes again. NIV 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes. NLT 27 So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of sinning against the body and 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. NLT 28 That is why you should examine yourself before eating the bread and drinking the cup. NIV 28 A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. NLT 29 For if you eat the bread or drink the cup without honoring the body of Christ, you are eating and drinking God’s judgment upon yourself. NIV 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself. NLT 30 That is why many of you are weak and sick and some have even died. NIV 30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep. NLT 31 But if we would examine ourselves, we would not be judged by God in this way. NIV 31 But if we judged ourselves, we would not come under judgment. NLT 32 Yet when we are judged by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be condemned 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. NLT 33 So, my dear brothers and sisters, when you gather for the Lord’s Supper, wait for each other. NIV 33 So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for each other. NLT 34 If you are really hungry, eat at home so you won’t bring judgment upon yourselves when you meet together. I’ll give you instructions about the other matters after I arrive. 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.
