1 Coríntios 11

1 Be{+} imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ.

2 Now I praise you{+} that you{+} remember me in all things, and hold fast the traditions, even as I delivered them 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.

4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head.

5 But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonors her head; for it is one and the same thing as if she were shaven.

6 For if a woman is not veiled, let her also be shorn: but if it is a shame to a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be veiled.

7 For a man indeed ought not to have his head veiled, since he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man:

9 for neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man:

10 for this cause ought the woman to have [a sign of] authority on her head, because of the angels.

11 Nevertheless, neither is the woman without the man, nor the man without the woman, in the Lord.

12 For as the woman is of the man, so is the man also by the woman; but all things are of God.

13 Judge{+} in yourselves: is it seemly that a woman prays to God unveiled?

14 Does not even nature itself teach you{+}, that, if a man has long hair, it is a shame to him?

15 But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given to her for a covering.

16 But if any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

17 But in giving you{+} this charge, I do not praise you{+}, that you{+} come together not for the better but for the worse.

18 For first of all, when you{+} come together in the church, I hear that divisions exist among you{+}; and I partly believe it.

19 For there must also be factions among you{+}, that those who are approved may also be made manifest among you{+}.

20 When therefore you{+} assemble yourselves together, it is not possible to eat the Lord's supper:

21 for in your{+} eating each takes before [another] his own supper; and one is hungry, and another is drunk.

22 What, don't you{+} have houses to eat and to drink in? Or do you{+} despise the church of God, and put them to shame that do not have? What shall I say to you{+}? Shall I praise you{+}? In this I do not praise you{+}.

23 For I received of the Lord that which also I delivered to you{+}, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was delivered up took bread;

24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, This is my body, which is for you{+}: this do in remembrance of me.

25 In like manner also the cup, after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do, as often as you{+} drink [it], in remembrance of me.

26 For as often as you{+} eat this bread, and drink the cup, you{+} proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.

27 Therefore whoever will eat the bread or drink the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, will be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.

28 But let a man prove himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup.

29 For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he does not discern the body.

30 For this cause many among you{+} are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep.

31 But if we discerned ourselves, we should not be judged.

32 But when we are judged by the Lord, we are chastened, that we may not be condemned with the world.

33 Therefore, my brothers, when you{+} come together to eat, wait one for another.

34 If any man is hungry, let him eat at home; that your{+} coming together not be to judgment. And the rest I will set in order whenever I come.
