Roles in Worship
1Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
2Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 3But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. 4Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoreth his head. 5But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered, dishonoreth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaved. 6For if the woman is not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it is a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaved, let her be covered. 7For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. 8For the man is not from the woman, but the woman from the man. 9Neither was the man created for the woman, but the woman for the man. 10For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head, because of the angels. 11Nevertheless, neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man in the Lord. 12For as the woman is from the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things from God. 13Judge in yourselves: Is it comely that a woman should pray to God uncovered? 14Doth not even nature itself teach you, that if a man hath long hair, it is a shame to him? 15But if a woman hath long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. 16But if any man seemeth to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
Observing the Lord's Supper
17Now in this that I declare to you, I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. 18For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there are divisions among you; and I partly believe it. 19For there must be also heresies among you, that they who are approved may be made manifest among you. 20When therefore ye come together in one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper. 21For in eating every one taketh before another his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken. 22What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not.
23For I have received from the Lord, that which also I delivered to you, That the Lord Jesus, the same night in which he was betrayed, took bread: 24And when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. 25After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as often as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. 26For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till he shall come.
27Wherefore, whoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh condemnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
33Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. 34And if any man hungereth, let him eat at home; that ye come not together to condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.
