NASB — 1 Corinthians 11 — KJV

Christian Order

1 aBe imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.

[1] a1Co 4:16; Php 3:17

2 ¶ Now aI praise you because you bremember me in everything and chold firmly to the traditions, just as I delivered them to you. 3 But I want you to understand that IChrist is the ahead of every man, and bthe man is the head of a woman, and God is the chead of IChrist. 4 Every man who has [something] on his head while praying or aprophesying disgraces his head. 5 But every awoman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying disgraces her head, for she is one and the same as the woman Iwhose head is bshaved. 6 For if a woman does not cover Iher head, let her also IIhave her hair cut off; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to IIhave her hair cut off or Iher head shaved, let her cover Iher head. 7 For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the aimage and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. 8 For aman Idoes not originate from woman, but woman from man; 9 for indeed man was not created for the woman’s sake, but awoman for the man’s sake. 10 Therefore the woman ought to have [a symbol of] authority on her head, because of the angels. 11 However, in the Lord, neither is woman Iindependent of man, nor is man Iindependent of woman. 12 For as the woman Ioriginates from the man, so also the man [has his birth] through the woman; and aall things IIoriginate bfrom God. 13 aJudge Ifor yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God [with her head] uncovered? 14 Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor 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 one is inclined to be contentious, awe have no Iother practice, nor have bthe churches of God.

17 ¶ But in giving this instruction, aI do not praise you, because you come together not for the better but for the worse. 18 For, in the first place, when you come together Ias a church, I hear that IIadivisions exist among you; and in part I believe it. 19 For there amust also be factions among you, bso that those who are approved may become Ievident among you. 20 Therefore when you meet together, it is not to eat the Lord’s Supper, 21 for in your eating each one takes his own supper first; and one is hungry and aanother is drunk. 22 What! Do you not have houses in which to eat and drink? Or do you despise the achurch of God and bshame those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall cI praise you? In this I will not praise you.

The Lord’s Supper

23 ¶ For aI received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that bthe Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same way [He took] athe cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the bnew covenant in My blood; do this, 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 auntil He comes.

[23] a1Co 15:3; Ga 1:12; Col 3:24 b1Co 11:23-25: Mt 26:26-28; Mk 14:22-24; Lk 22:17-20; 1Co 10:16
[25] a1Co 10:16 bEx 24:6-8; Lk 22:20; 2Co 3:6
[26] aJn 21:22; 1Co 4:5

27 ¶ Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be aguilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. 28 But a man must aexamine himself, and in so doing he is to 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 judge the body rightly. 30 For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number Iasleep. 31 But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are adisciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with bthe world.

[32] a2S 7:14; Ps 94:12; He 12:7-10; Rv 3:19 b1Co 1:20

33 ¶ So then, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. 34 If anyone is ahungry, let him eat bat home, so that you will not come together for judgment. The remaining matters I will carrange dwhen I come.

He reproveth them, because in holy assemblies,

1 ¶ Be ye followers of me, even as I also [am] of Christ. 2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, 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.

their men prayed with their heads covered,

4 Every man praying or prophesying, having [his] head covered, dishonoureth his head. 5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with [her] head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

and women with their heads uncovered,

6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 7 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. 8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. 10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on [her] head because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. 12 For as the woman [is] of the man, even so [is] the man also by the woman; but all things of God. 13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? 14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for [her] hair is given her for a covering. 16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

and because generally their meetings were not for the better, but for the worse,

17 Now in this that I declare [unto you] I praise [you] not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. 18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. 19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you. 20 When ye come together therefore into one place, [this] is not to eat the Lord's supper.

as namely in profaning with their own feasts the Lord's supper.

21 For in eating every one taketh before [other] his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken. 22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise [you] not.

Lastly, he calleth them to the first institution thereof.

23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the [same] night in which he was betrayed took bread: 24 And when he had given thanks, he brake [it], and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25 After the same manner also [he took] the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink [it], in remembrance of me. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. 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. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of [that] bread, and drink of [that] cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30 For this cause many [are] weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. 33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. 34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.
