Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 11:6

_ _ A woman would not like to be “shorn” or (what is worse) “shaven”; but if she chooses to be uncovered (unveiled) in front, let her be so also behind, that is, “shorn.”

_ _ a shame — an unbecoming thing (compare 1 Corinthians 11:13-15). Thus the shaving of nuns is “a shame.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 11:1-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 11:6

Therefore if a woman is not covered — If she will throw off the badge of subjection, let her appear with her hair cut like a man's. But if it be shameful far a woman to appear thus in public, especially in a religious assembly, let her, for the same reason, keep on her veil.

but:

Numbers 5:18 And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which [is] the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse:
Deuteronomy 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God.
