1 Corinthians 11
He reproveth them, because in holy assemblies,
1 Corinthians 11:1 Become imitators of me,even as, I also, [am] of Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:2 Now I praise you, that, in all things, ye have me in remembrance, and, even as I delivered unto you the instructions, ye hold them fast. 1 Corinthians 11:3 But I wish you to knowthat, the head of every man, is, the Christ, and, the head of a woman, is, the man; and, the head of the Christ, is, God.
their men prayed with their heads covered,
1 Corinthians 11:4 Every man, praying, or prophesying, having anything upon his head, putteth to shame his head; 1 Corinthians 11:5 But, every woman, praying, or prophesying, with her head, unveiled, putteth to shame her head,for it is, one and the same, with her having been shaven.
and women with their heads uncovered,
1 Corinthians 11:6 For, if a woman doth not veil herself, let her also be shorn; but, if it were a shame in a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be veiled. 1 Corinthians 11:7 For, a man, indeed, ought not to be veiling his head, being, the image and glory of God,but, the woman, is the glory of man; 1 Corinthians 11:8 For, man, is not, of woman, but, woman, of man; 1 Corinthians 11:9 For also man was not created, for the sake of the woman, but woman, for the sake of the man. 1 Corinthians 11:10 For this cause, ought the woman to have, permission, upon her head, because of the messengers. 1 Corinthians 11:11 Howbeit, neither is woman apart from man, nor man apart from womanin the Lord; 1 Corinthians 11:12 For, just as the woman is of the man, so, also the man, is through means of the woman;but, all things, are of God. 1 Corinthians 11:13 Among your own selves, judge ye,Is it becoming for a woman,unveiled, to be praying unto God? 1 Corinthians 11:14 Doth not, even nature herself, teach youthat, if, a man, have long hair, it is a dishonour to him; 1 Corinthians 11:15 But, if, a woman, have long hair, it is a glory to her, for, her long hair, instead of a veil, hath been given to her. 1 Corinthians 11:16 But, if anyone thinketh to be contentious, we, have no such custom,nor yet the assemblies of God.
and because generally their meetings were not for the better, but for the worse,
1 Corinthians 11:17 But, in giving you the following charge, I praise you not,in that, not for the better, but for the worse, ye come together. 1 Corinthians 11:18 For, first of all,when ye come together in assembly, I hear that divisions among you exist,and, in part, I believe it; 1 Corinthians 11:19 For there must needs be, even parties among you, that, the approved, [themselves] may become manifest among you. 1 Corinthians 11:20 When, therefore, ye come together into one place, it is not to eat, a supper unto the Lord;
as namely in profaning with their own feasts the Lord's supper.
1 Corinthians 11:21 For, each one, taketh beforehand, his own supper, in your eating, and, one, indeed, is hungry, whereas, another, is drinking to excess. 1 Corinthians 11:22 What! have ye not houses for your eating and drinking? or, the assembly of God, do ye despise, and, put to shame them who have nothing? What am I to say to you? Shall I praise you? In this, I praise you not.
Lastly, he calleth them to the first institution thereof.
1 Corinthians 11:23 For, I myself, received from the Lordthat which I also delivered unto you,how that, the Lord Jesus, in the night in which he was being delivered up, took a loaf, 1 Corinthians 11:24 And, giving thanks, brake it, and saidThis, is my body, which is for you,this, do ye, in remembrance of me; 1 Corinthians 11:25 In the same manner, the cup also, after they had taken supper, sayingThis cup, is, the new covenant in my blood, this, do ye, as often soever as ye may be drinking it, in remembrance of me. 1 Corinthians 11:26 For, as often as ye may be eating this loaf, and, the cup, may be drinking, The death of the Lord, do ye announce, until he come. 1 Corinthians 11:27 So that, whosoever may be eating the loaf, or drinking the cup of the Lord, in an unworthy manner, shall be responsible for the body and blood of the Lord. 1 Corinthians 11:28 But let a man be proving himself,and, so, of the loaf, let him eat, and, of the cup, let him drink; 1 Corinthians 11:29 For, he that is eating and drinking,judgment unto himself, doth eat and drink,if he be not setting apart the body. 1 Corinthians 11:30 For this cause, many among you are weak and sickly; and, not a few, are falling asleep. 1 Corinthians 11:31 If, however, we had been setting, ourselves, apart, we had not, in that case, been coming under judgment; 1 Corinthians 11:32 But, being brought under judgment, by the Lord, are we being disciplined, lest, with the world, we should be condemned. 1 Corinthians 11:33 So then, my brethren,when ye come together for the eating, unto one another, be giving welcome: 1 Corinthians 11:34 If anyone be hungry, at home, let him eat, lest, unto judgment, ye be coming together. And, the remaining things, whensoever I come, I will set in order.
