New International Version
If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice--nor do the churches of God.
King James Bible
But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
Darby Bible Translation
But if any one think to be contentious, *we* have no such custom, nor the assemblies of God.
World English Bible
But if any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither do God's assemblies.
Young's Literal Translation

We have already seen that the verb δοκειν, which we translate to seem, generally strengthens and increases the sense. From the attention that the apostle has paid to the subject of veils and hair, it is evident that it must have occasioned considerable disturbance in the Church of Corinth. They have produced evil effects in much later times.
