Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 11:7-9

_ _ Argument, also, from man’s more immediate relation to God, and the woman’s to man.

_ _ he is ... image ... glory of God — being created in God’s “image,” first and directly: the woman, subsequently, and indirectly, through the mediation of man. Man is the representative of God’s “glory” this ideal of man being realized most fully in the Son of man (Psalms 8:4, Psalms 8:5; compare 2 Corinthians 8:23). Man is declared in Scripture to be both the “image,” and in the “likeness,” of God (compare James 3:9). But “image” alone is applied to the Son of God (Colossians 1:15; compare Hebrews 1:3). “Express image,” Greek, “the impress.” The Divine Son is not merely “like” God, He is God of God, “being of one substance (essence) with the Father.” [Nicene Creed].

_ _ woman ... glory of ... man — He does not say, also, “the image of the man.” For the sexes differ: moreover, the woman is created in the image of God, as well as the man (Genesis 1:26, Genesis 1:27). But as the moon in relation to the sun (Genesis 37:9), so woman shines not so much with light direct from God, as with light derived from man, that is, in her order in creation; not that she does not in grace come individually into direct communion with God; but even here much of her knowledge is mediately given her through man, on whom she is naturally dependent.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 11:1-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 11:7

A man indeed ought not to veil his head, because he is the image of God — In the dominion he bears over the creation, representing the supreme dominion of God, which is his glory. But the woman is only matter of glory to the man, who has a becoming dominion over her. Therefore she ought not to appear, but with her head veiled, as a tacit acknowledgment of it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 11:7

(6) For a man indeed ought not to cover [his] head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

(6) The taking away of an objection: have not men also hair given to them? "I grant that", says the apostle, "but there is another matter in it. For man was made to this end and purpose, that the glory of God should appear in his rule and authority. But the woman was made so that by profession of her obedience, she might more honour her husband."
