1 Be imitators of me, as I am of the Meshiha.
2 But I commend you, my brethren, that in every thing you remember me; and that as I have delivered to you precepts, you hold them.
3 But I would that you know that the Meshiha is the head of every man; and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of the Meshiha is Aloha.
4 Every man who prayeth or prophesieth having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.
5 And every woman who prayeth or prophesieth having her head uncovered, dishonoureth her head, for she is similar to one whose head is shaven.
6 For if a woman be not covered, let her be shorn; but if it be shameful for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.
7 For a man is not obligated to cover his head, because he is the likeness and the glory of Aloha; but woman is the glory of man.
8 For the man is not from woman, but the woman is from man.
9 Neither was the man created for the sake of woman, but woman for the sake of man.
10 Because of this the woman is a debtor, that the power shall be upon her head, on account of the angels.
11 Nevertheless man is not without woman, neither is woman without man, in our Lord.
12 For as a woman is from man, so is man by woman; but every thing is from Aloha.
13 Judge among yourselves, Is it comely for a woman with her head revealed to pray to Aloha?
14 Does not nature itself teach you, that when a man's hair standeth, it is a disgrace to him?
15 But when a woman increaseth her hair, it is a glory to her; because her hair for a covering was given to her.
16 But if any man contendeth about these things, we have no such usage as this, neither the church of Aloha.
17 But this I prescribe not as praising you, because you go not forward, but to the less you descend.
18 For, first, when you are assembled in the church, there are divisions, (as) I hear, among you, and in some measure I believe.
19 For it is to be that contentions be among you, that they who are approved with you may be known.
20 When then you are assembled, not as befitteth the day of the Lord you eat and drink,
21 but each man his own supper before eateth, and one is hungry, and one drunken.
22 What? have you not houses (in) which to eat and drink? Or do you despise the church of Aloha, and shame those who have nothing to eat? What do I say to you? Do I praise you in this? I praise you not.
23 FOR I received from our Lord that which I have delivered unto you: that our Lord Jeshu in that night when he was betrayed took bread;
24 and he blessed and brake, and said, Take, eat, this (is) my body which for you is broken: so do to my remembrance.
25 Likewise after they had supped he gave also the cup, and said, This cup is the new covenant in my blood; so do, whensoever you shall drink (it) to my remembrance.
26 For whensoever you eat this bread, and drink this cup, the death of our Lord you commemorate until his advent.
27 Whoever then eateth of the bread of the Lord, and drinketh of his cup, and is not worthy of it, is guilty of the blood of the Lord and of his body.
28 On this account a man should prove himself, and then eat of this bread, and drink of this cup.
29 For whoever eateth and drinketh of it while not worthy, condemnation to himself he eateth and drinketh, because he hath not distinguished the body of the Lord.
30 On this account many among you are sick and infirm, and many who sleep.
31 For if we judge ourselves, we shall not be judged.
32 But when we are judged of our Lord, we are chastised, that not with the world we might be condemned.
33 Wherefore, my brethren, when you assemble to eat, wait for one another.
34 But whoever hungereth, in his (own) house let him feed; that you may not assemble unto condemnation. Concerning the rest, when I come I will direct you.
