1 Corinthians 11 (WEBP)

[1] Be imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ.
[2] Now I praise you, brothers, that you remember me in all things, and hold firm the traditions, even 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 man, and the head§ of Christ is God.
[4] Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head.
[5] But every woman praying or prophesying with her head uncovered dishonors her head. For it is one and the same thing as if she were shaved.
[6] For if a woman is not covered, let her hair also be cut off. But if it is shameful for a woman to have her hair cut off or be shaved, let her be covered.
[7] For a man indeed ought not to have his head covered, because he is the image and glory of God, but the woman is the glory of the man.
[8] For man is not from woman, but woman from man;
[9] for man wasn’t created for the woman, but woman for the man.
[10] For this cause the woman ought to have authority over her own head, because of the angels.
[11] Nevertheless, neither is the woman independent of the man, nor the man independent of the woman, in the Lord.
[12] For as woman came from man, so a man also comes through a woman; but all things are from God.
[13] Judge for yourselves. Is it appropriate that a woman pray to God unveiled?
[14] Doesn’t 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 any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither do God’s assemblies.
[17] But in giving you this command I don’t praise you, because you come together not for the better but for the worse.
[18] For first of all, when you come together in the assembly, I hear that divisions exist among you, and I partly believe it.
[19] For there also must be factions among you, that those who are approved may be revealed among you.
[20] When therefore you assemble yourselves together, it is not the Lord’s supper that you eat.
[21] For in your eating each one takes his own supper first. One is hungry, and another is drunken.
[22] What, don’t you have houses to eat and to drink in? Or do you despise God’s assembly and put them to shame who don’t have enough? What shall I tell you? Shall I praise you? In this I don’t praise you.
[23] For I received from the Lord that which also I delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night in which he was betrayed took bread.
[24] When he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “Take, eat. This is my body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of me.”
[25] In the same way he also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of me.”
[26] For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
[27] Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks the Lord’s cup in a way unworthy of the Lord will be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
[28] But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
[29] For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy way eats and drinks judgment to himself if he doesn’t discern the Lord’s body.
[30] For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep.
[31] For if we discerned ourselves, we wouldn’t be judged.
[32] But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
[33] Therefore, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another.
[34] But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest your coming together be for judgment. The rest I will set in order whenever I come.

1 Corinthians 11 (KJVS)

[1] Be G1096 (PresMidPasDepImpr) ye followers G3402 of me G3450, even as G2531 I also G2504 [am] of Christ G5547.
[2] Now G1161 I praise G1867 (PresActInd) you G5209, brethren G80, that G3754 ye remember G3415 (PerfPasInd) me G3450 in all things G3956, and G2532 keep G2722 (PresActInd) the ordinances G3862, as G2531 I delivered G3860 (AorActInd) [them] to you G5213.
[3] But G1161 I would have G2309 (PresActInd) you G5209 know G1492 (PerfActInf), that G3754 the head G2776 of every G3956 man G435 is G2076 (PresInd) Christ G5547; and G1161 the head G2776 of the woman G1135 [is] the man G435; and G1161 the head G2776 of Christ G5547 [is] God G2316.
[4] Every G3956 man G435 praying G4336 (PresMidPasDepPtc) or G2228 prophesying G4395 (PresActPtc), having G2192 (PresActPtc) [his] head G2776 covered G2596, dishonoureth G2617 (PresActInd) his G846 head G2776.
[5] But G1161 every G3956 woman G1135 that prayeth G4336 (PresMidPasDepPtc) or G2228 prophesieth G4395 (PresActPtc) with [her] head G2776 uncovered G177 dishonoureth G2617 (PresActInd) her G1438 head G2776: for G1063 that is G2076 (PresInd) even G2532 all one G1520 as if G846 she were shaven G3587 (PerfPasPtc).
[6] For G1063 if G1487 the woman G1135 be G2619 not G3756 covered G2619 (PresPasInd), let her G2751 also G2532 be shorn G2751 (AorMidImpr): but G1161 if G1487 it be a shame G149 for a woman G1135 to be shorn G2751 (AorMidInf) or G2228 shaven G3587 (PresPasInf), let her be covered G2619 (PresPasImpr).
[7] For G1063 a man G435 indeed G3303 ought G3784 (PresActInd) not G3756 to cover G2619 (PresPasInf) [his] head G2776, forasmuch as he is G5225 (PresActPtc) the image G1504 and G2532 glory G1391 of God G2316: but G1161 the woman G1135 is G2076 (PresInd) the glory G1391 of the man G435.
[8] For G1063 the man G435 is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 of G1537 the woman G1135; but G235 the woman G1135 of G1537 the man G435.
[9] G1063 G2532 Neither G3756 was G2936 the man G435 created G2936 (AorPasInd) for G1223 the woman G1135; but G235 the woman G1135 for G1223 the man G435.
[10] For this G5124 cause G1223 ought G3784 (PresActInd) the woman G1135 to have G2192 (PresActInf) power G1849 on G1909 [her] head G2776 because G1223 of the angels G32.
[11] Nevertheless G4133 neither G3777 is the man G435 without G5565 the woman G1135, neither G3777 the woman G1135 without G5565 the man G435, in G1722 the Lord G2962.
[12] For G1063 as G5618 the woman G1135 [is] of G1537 the man G435, even so G3779 [is] the man G435 also G2532 by G1223 the woman G1135; but G1161 all things G3956 of G1537 God G2316.
[13] Judge G2919 (AorActImpr) in G1722 yourselves G5213 G846: is it G2076 (PresInd) comely G4241 (PresActPtc) that a woman G1135 pray G4336 (PresMidPasDepInf) unto God G2316 uncovered G177?
[14] Doth G2228 not even G3761 nature G5449 itself G846 teach G1321 (PresActInd) you G5209, that G3754, if G1437 G3303 a man G435 have long hair G2863 (PresActSubj), it is G2076 (PresInd) a shame G819 unto him G846?
[15] But G1161 if G1437 a woman G1135 have long hair G2863 (PresActSubj), it is G2076 (PresInd) a glory G1391 to her G846: for G3754 [her] hair G2864 is given G1325 (PerfPasInd) her G846 for G473 a covering G4018.
[16] But G1161 if any man G1536 seem G1380 (PresActInd) to be G1511 (PresInf) contentious G5380, we G2249 have G2192 (PresActInd) no G3756 such G5108 custom G4914, neither G3761 the churches G1577 of God G2316.
[17] Now G1161 in this G5124 that I declare G3853 (PresActPtc) [unto you] I praise G1867 (PresActInd) [you] not G3756, that G3754 ye come together G4905 (PresMidPasDepInd) not G3756 for G1519 the better G2909, but G235 for G1519 the worse G2276.
[18] For G1063 G3303 first of all G4412, when ye G5216 come together G4905 (PresMidPasDepPtc) in G1722 the church G1577, I hear G191 (PresActInd) that there be G5225 (PresActInf) divisions G4978 among G1722 you G5213; and G2532 I partly G3313 believe G4100 (PresActInd) it G5100.
[19] For G1063 there must G1163 (PresInd) be G1511 (PresInf) also G2532 heresies G139 among G1722 you G5213, that G2443 they which are approved G1384 may be made G1096 (Aor2MidDepSubj) manifest G5318 among G1722 you G5213.
[20] When ye G5216 come together G4905 (PresMidPasDepPtc) therefore G3767 into G1909 one place G846, [this] is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 to eat G5315 (Aor2ActInf) the Lord’s G2960 supper G1173.
[21] For G1063 in G1722 eating G5315 (Aor2ActInf) every one G1538 taketh before G4301 (PresActInd) [other] his own G2398 supper G1173: and G2532 one G3739 G3303 is hungry G3983 (PresActInd), and G1161 another G3739 is drunken G3184 (PresActInd).
[22] What G1063? have ye G2192 (PresActInd) not G3378 houses G3614 to eat G2068 (PresActInf) and G2532 to drink G4095 (PresActInf) in G1519? or G2228 despise ye G2706 (PresActInd) the church G1577 of God G2316, and G2532 shame G2617 (PresActInd) them that have G2192 (PresActPtc) not G3361? What G5101 shall I say G2036 (Aor2ActSubj) to you G5213? shall I praise G1867 (AorActSubj) you G5209 in G1722 this G5129? I praise G1867 (PresActInd) [you] not G3756.
[23] For G1063 I G1473 have received G3880 (Aor2ActInd) of G575 the Lord G2962 that which G3739 also G2532 I delivered G3860 (AorActInd) unto you G5213, That G3754 the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 the [same] night G3571 in G1722 which G3739 he was betrayed G3860 (ImpfPasInd) took G2983 (Aor2ActInd) bread G740:
[24] And G2532 when he had given thanks G2168 (AorActPtc), he brake G2806 (AorActInd) [it], and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Take G2983 (Aor2ActImpr), eat G5315 (Aor2ActImpr): this G5124 is G2076 (PresInd) my G3450 body G4983, which G3588 is broken G2806 (PresPasPtc) for G5228 you G5216: this G5124 do G4160 (PresActImpr) in G1519 remembrance G364 of me G1699.
[25] After the same manner G5615 also G2532 [he took] the cup G4221, when G3326 he had supped G1172 (AorActInf), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), This G5124 cup G4221 is G2076 (PresInd) the new G2537 testament G1242 in G1722 my G1699 blood G129: this G5124 do ye G4160 (PresActImpr), as oft as G3740 G302 ye drink G4095 (PresActSubj) [it], in G1519 remembrance G364 of me G1699.
[26] For G1063 as often as G302 G3740 ye eat G2068 (PresActSubj) this G5126 bread G740, and G2532 drink G4095 (PresActSubj) this G5124 cup G4221, ye do shew G2605 (PresActInd) the Lord’s G2962 death G2288 till G891 G302 he G3739 come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj).
[27] Wherefore G5620 whosoever G3739 G302 shall eat G2068 (PresActSubj) this G5126 bread G740, and G2228 drink G4095 (PresActSubj) [this] cup G4221 of the Lord G2962, unworthily G371, shall be G2071 (FutInd) guilty G1777 of the body G4983 and G2532 blood G129 of the Lord G2962.
[28] But G1161 let G1381 a man G444 examine G1381 (PresActImpr) himself G1438, and G2532 so G3779 let him eat G2068 (PresActImpr) of G1537 [that] bread G740, and G2532 drink G4095 (PresActImpr) of G1537 [that] cup G4221.
[29] For G1063 he that eateth G2068 (PresActPtc) and G2532 drinketh G4095 (PresActPtc) unworthily G371, eateth G2068 (PresActInd) and G2532 drinketh G4095 (PresActInd) damnation G2917 to himself G1438, not G3361 discerning G1252 (PresActPtc) the Lord’s G2962 body G4983.
[30] For G1223 this G5124 cause G1223 many G4183 [are] weak G772 and G2532 sickly G732 among G1722 you G5213, and G2532 many G2425 sleep G2837 (PresPasInd).
[31] For G1063 if G1487 we would judge G1252 (ImpfActInd) ourselves G1438, we should G302 not G3756 be judged G2919 (ImpfPasInd).
[32] But G1161 when we are judged G2919 (PresPasPtc), we are chastened G3811 (PresPasInd) of G5259 the Lord G2962, that G3363 we should G2632 not G3363 be condemned G2632 (AorPasSubj) with G4862 the world G2889.
[33] Wherefore G5620, my G3450 brethren G80, when ye come together G4905 (PresMidPasDepPtc) to G1519 eat G5315 (Aor2ActInf), tarry G1551 (PresMidPasDepImpr) one for another G240.
[34] And G1161 if any man G1536 hunger G3983 (PresActInd), let him eat G2068 (PresActImpr) at G1722 home G3624; that G3363 ye come G4905 not G3363 together G4905 (PresMidPasDepSubj) unto G1519 condemnation G2917. And G1161 the rest G3062 will I set in order G1299 (FutMidDepInd) when G5613 G302 I come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj).

Young’s Literal Translation

1 Corinthians 11 (YLT)

[1] Followers of me become ye, as I also am of Christ.
[2] And I praise you, brethren, that in all things ye remember me, and according as I did deliver to you, the deliverances ye keep,
[3] and I wish you to know that of every man the head is the Christ, and the head of a woman is the husband, and the head of Christ is God.
[4] Every man praying or prophesying, having the head covered, doth dishonour his head,
[5] and every woman praying or prophesying with the head uncovered, doth dishonour her own head, for it is one and the same thing with her being shaven,
[6] for if a woman is not covered-then let her be shorn, and if it is a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven-let her be covered;
[7] for a man, indeed, ought not to cover the head, being the image and glory of God, and a woman is the glory of a man,
[8] for a man is not of a woman, but a woman is of a man,
[9] for a man also was not created because of the woman, but a woman because of the man;
[10] because of this the woman ought to have a token of authority upon the head, because of the messengers;
[11] but neither is a man apart from a woman, nor a woman apart from a man, in the Lord,
[12] for as the woman is of the man, so also the man is through the woman, and the all things are of God.
[13] In your own selves judge ye; is it seemly for a woman uncovered to pray to God?
[14] doth not even nature itself teach you, that if a man indeed have long hair, a dishonour it is to him?
[15] and a woman, if she have long hair, a glory it is to her, because the hair instead of a covering hath been given to her;
[16] and if any one doth think to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the assemblies of God.
[17] And this declaring, I give no praise, because not for the better, but for the worse ye come together;
[18] for first, indeed, ye coming together in an assembly, I hear of divisions being among you, and partly I believe it,
[19] for it behoveth sects also to be among you, that those approved may become manifest among you;
[20] ye, then, coming together at the same place-it is not to eat the Lord’s supper;
[21] for each his own supper doth take before in the eating, and one is hungry, and another is drunk;
[22] why, have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or the assembly of God do ye despise, and shame those not having? what may I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I do not praise!
[23] For I-I received from the Lord that which also I did deliver to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was delivered up, took bread,
[24] and having given thanks, he brake, and said, ‘Take ye, eat ye, this is my body, that for you is being broken; this do ye-to the remembrance of me.’
[25] In like manner also the cup after the supping, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood; this do ye, as often as ye may drink it-to the remembrance of me;’
[26] for as often as ye may eat this bread, and this cup may drink, the death of the Lord ye do shew forth-till he may come;
[27] so that whoever may eat this bread or may drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, guilty he shall be of the body and blood of the Lord:
[28] and let a man be proving himself, and so of the bread let him eat, and of the cup let him drink;
[29] for he who is eating and drinking unworthily, judgment to himself he doth eat and drink-not discerning the body of the Lord.
[30] Because of this, among you many are weak and sickly, and sleep do many;
[31] for if ourselves we were discerning, we would not be being judged,
[32] and being judged by the Lord, we are chastened, that with the world we may not be condemned;
[33] so then, my brethren, coming together to eat, for one another wait ye;
[34] and if any one is hungry, at home let him eat, that to judgment ye may not come together; and the rest, whenever I may come, I shall arrange.
