Christian Order

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:1 - Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:2 - Now I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold firmly to the traditions, just as I delivered them to you.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:3 - But I want you to understand that [fn]Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of [fn]Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:4 - Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:5 - But every woman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying disgraces her head, for she is one and the same as the woman [fn]whose head is shaved.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:6 - For if a woman does not cover [fn]her head, let her also [fn]have her hair cut off; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to [fn]have her hair cut off or [fn]her head shaved, let her cover [fn]her head.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:7 - For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:8 - For man [fn]does not originate from woman, but woman from man;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:9 - for indeed man was not created for the woman’s sake, but woman for the man’s sake.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:10 - Therefore the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:11 - However, in the Lord, neither is woman [fn]independent of man, nor is man [fn]independent of woman.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:12 - For as the woman [fn]originates from the man, so also the man has his birth through the woman; and all things [fn]originate from God.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:13 - Judge [fn]for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:14 - Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:15 - but if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her? For her hair is given to her for a covering.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:16 - But if one is inclined to be contentious, we have no [fn]other practice, nor have the churches of God.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:17 - But in giving this instruction, I do not praise you, because you come together not for the better but for the worse.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:18 - For, in the first place, when you come together [fn]as a church, I hear that [fn]divisions exist among you; and in part I believe it.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:19 - For there must also be factions among you, so that those who are approved may become [fn]evident among you.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:20 - Therefore when you meet together, it is not to eat the Lord’s Supper,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:21 - for in your eating each one takes his own supper first; and one is hungry and another is drunk.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:22 - What! Do you not have houses in which to eat and drink? Or do you despise the church of God and shame those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you? In this I will not praise you.

The Lord's Supper

(Mat 26:26–29; Mar 14:22–25; Luk 22:14–23 )
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:23 - For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread;
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:24 - 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.”
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:25 - In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:26 - For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:27 - Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:28 - But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:29 - For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:30 - For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number [fn]sleep.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:31 - But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:32 - But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:33 - So then, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 11:34 - If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, so that you will not come together for judgment. The remaining matters I will arrange when I come.
