1 Corinthians 11
He reproveth them, because in holy assemblies,
1 Corinthians 11:1 I commende you 1 Corinthians 11:2 brethren that ye remeber me in all thinges and kepe the ordinaunces even as I delyvered them to you. 1 Corinthians 11:3 I wolde ye knew that Christ is the heed of every man. And the man is the womans heed. And God is Christes heed.
their men prayed with their heads covered,
1 Corinthians 11:4 Eevery ma prayinge or prophesyinge havynge eny thynge on his heed shameth his heed. 1 Corinthians 11:5 Every woman that prayeth or prophisieth bare hedded dishonesteth hyr heed. For it is even all one and the very same thinge even as though she were shaven.
and women with their heads uncovered,
1 Corinthians 11:6 If the woman be not covered lett her also be shoren. If it be shame for a woma to be shorne or shave let her cover her heed. 1 Corinthians 11:7 A man ought not to cover his heed for as moche as he is the image and glory of God. The woman is the glory of the man. 1 Corinthians 11:8 For the man is not of the woman but the woman of the ma. 1 Corinthians 11:9 Nether was the man created for ye womas sake: but the woma for the mannes sake 1 Corinthians 11:10 For this cause ought the woma to have power on her heed for the angels sakes. 1 Corinthians 11:11 Neverthelesse nether is the ma with oute the woma nether the woma with out the man in the lorde. 1 Corinthians 11:12 For as the woman is of the man eve so is the man by the woman: but all is of God. 1 Corinthians 11:13 Iudge in youre selves whether it be coly yt a woman praye vnto god bare heeded. 1 Corinthians 11:14 Or els doth not nature teach you that it is a shame for a man 1 Corinthians 11:15 if he have longe heere: and a prayse to a woman yf she have longe heere? For her heere is geven her to cover her with all. 1 Corinthians 11:16 If there be eny man amonge you yt lusteth to stryve let him knowe that we have no soche custome nether the congregacions of God.
and because generally their meetings were not for the better, but for the worse,
1 Corinthians 11:17 This I warne you of and commende not that ye come to gedder: not after a better maner but after a worsse. 1 Corinthians 11:18 Fyrst of all when ye come togedder in the cogregacion I heare that ther is dissencion amonge you: and I partly beleve it. 1 Corinthians 11:19 For ther must be sectes amonge you that they which are perfecte amonge you myght be knowen. 1 Corinthians 11:20 When ye come to gedder a man cannot eate the lordes supper. For every man begynneth a fore to eate his awne supper.
as namely in profaning with their own feasts the Lord's supper.
1 Corinthians 11:21 And one is hongrye and another is dronken. Have ye not houses to eate and to drinke in? 1 Corinthians 11:22 Or els despyse ye the congregacion of god and shame them that have not? What shall I saye vnto you? shall I prayse you: In this prayse I you not.
Lastly, he calleth them to the first institution thereof.
1 Corinthians 11:23 That which I delyvered vnto you I receaved of ye lorde. For ye lorde Iesus the same nyght in which he was betrayed toke breed: 1 Corinthians 11:24 and thanked and brake and sayde. Take ye and eate ye: this is my body which is broken for you. This do ye in the remembraunce of me. 1 Corinthians 11:25 After the same maner he toke the cup when sopper was done sayinge. This cup is the newe testament in my bloude. This do as oft as ye drynke it in the remebraunce of me. 1 Corinthians 11:26 For as often as ye shall eate this breed and drynke this cup ye shall shewe the lordes deeth tyll he come. 1 Corinthians 11:27 Wherfore whosoevere shall eate of this bred or drynke of the cup vnworthely shalbe giltie of the body and bloud of the Lorde 1 Corinthians 11:28 Let a ma therfore examen him silfe and so let hi eate of the breed and drynke of the cup. 1 Corinthians 11:29 For he yt eateth or drinketh vnworthely eateth and drynketh his awne damnacion because he maketh no difference of the lordis body. 1 Corinthians 11:30 For this cause many are weake and sicke amoge you and many slepe. 1 Corinthians 11:31 Yf we had truly iudged oure selves we shuld not have bene iudged. 1 Corinthians 11:32 But when we are iudged of the lorde we are chastened because we shuld not be daned with the worlde. 1 Corinthians 11:33 Wherfore my brethren when ye come to gedder to eate tary one for another. 1 Corinthians 11:34 Yf eny ma hoger let hi eate at home yt ye come not togedder vnto condenacio. Other thinges will I set in order whe I come.
