1 Corinthians 11

Chapter 11

11:2  Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.


things delivered; often trans. traditions.

11:3  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.


Cf. Genesis 3:16 . The woman's veil, or head-covering, is a symbol of this subordination.

11:10  For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.

power authority, i.e. the sign of the husband's authority.

angels i.e. of the presence of the angels.

11:27  Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.


i.e. in an unworthy manner; cf. vs. 1 Corinthians 11:20-22 .

11:29  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.


judgment, in the sense of 1 Corinthians 11:32 .

11:31  For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.


Self-judgment is not so much the believer's moral condemnation of his own ways or habits, or of himself, for allowing such ways. Self-judgment avoids chastisement. If neglected, the Lord judges, and the result is chastisement, but never condemnation 1 Corinthians 11:32 ; 2 Samuel 7:14 2 Samuel 7:15 ; 2 Samuel 12:13 2 Samuel 12:14 ; 1 Corinthians 5:5 ; 1 Timothy 1:20 ; Hebrews 12:7 .

11:32  But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.


kosmos = mankind. (See Scofield "Matthew 4:8") .
