1st Corinthians 11
WBMS

CHAPTER 11
1Be ye my followers, as I am of Christ.
2And, brethren, I praise you, that by all things ye be mindful of me; and as I betook to you my commandments, ye hold [or ye keep].
3But I will that ye know, that Christ is [the] head of each man; but the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
4Each man praying, or prophesying, when his head is covered, defouleth his head.
5But each woman praying, or prophesying, when her head is not covered, defouleth her head; for it is one, as if she were polled, [or were made bald, or clipped].
6And if a woman be not covered [or veiled], be she polled; and if it is foul thing to a woman to be polled, or to be made bald, cover she her head.
7But a man shall not cover his head, for he is the image and glory of God; but a woman is the glory of man.
8For a man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man.
9And the man is not made for the woman, but the woman for the man.
10Therefore the woman shall have a covering on her head, also for angels.
11Nevertheless neither the man is without the woman, neither the woman is without [the] man, in the Lord.
12For why as the woman is of the man, so the man is by the woman; but all things be of God.
13Deem ye yourselves; beseemeth [or becometh] it a woman not covered on the head to pray to God?
14Neither the kind itself teacheth us [that], for if a man nourish long hair, it is shame to him;
15but if a woman nourish long hair, it is glory to her, for hairs be given to her for covering.
16But if any man is seen to be full of strife, we have none such custom, neither the church of God.
17But this thing I command, not praising, that ye come together not into the better, but into the worse.
18First for when ye come together into the church, I hear that dissensions, either partings, be, and in part I believe.
19For it behooveth heresies to be, that they that be approved, be openly known in you.
20Therefore when ye come together into one, now it is not to eat the Lord’s supper;
21for why each man before taketh his supper to eat, and one is hungry, and another is drunken.
22Whether ye have not houses to eat and drink, or ye despise the church of God, and confound, [or shame], them that have none? [or that have not?] What shall I say to you? I praise you, but herein [or in this thing] I praise you not.
23For I have taken of the Lord that thing, which I have betaken to you. For the Lord Jesus, in what night he was betrayed, took bread,
24and did thankings [or graces], and brake, and said, Take ye, and eat ye; this is my body, which shall be betrayed for you; do ye this thing into my mind.
25Also [he took] the cup, after that he had supped, and said, This cup is the new testament in my blood; do ye this thing, as oft as ye shall drink [it], into my mind.
26For as oft as ye shall eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye shall tell [or show] the death of the Lord, till that he come [or till he come].
27Therefore whoever eateth the bread, or drinketh the cup of the Lord unworthily, he shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord.
28But prove a man himself, and so eat he of that bread, and drink he of the cup.
29For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh doom, [or damnation], to him[self], not wisely deeming the body of the Lord.
30Therefore among you many be sick and feeble [or unstrong], and many sleep, [or die].
31And if we deemed wisely us-selves, we should not be deemed;
32but while we be deemed of the Lord, we be chastised, that we be not condemned with this world.
33Therefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, abide ye together.
34If any man hungereth, eat he at home, that ye come not together into doom. And I shall dispose other things, when I come.
