2 Now I praise you, brothers, because you remember me in all things, and you hold fast the traditions just as I handed down to you.
2 Now I praise you that ye remember me in all things, and hold fast the traditions, even as I delivered them to you.
3 But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.
3 So I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ. But the head of woman is man. Yet truly, the head of Christ is God.
3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the wife is her husband; and the head of Christ is God.
4 Every man who prays or who prophesies with his head covered, dishonors his head.
4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoreth his head.
5 But every woman who prays or who prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her own head, for that is one and the same as if her [head] were shaved.
5 But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonoreth her head; for it is one and the same thing as if she were shaven.
5 And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered, dishonors her head: for she is equal to her whose head is shaven.
6 For if a woman is not covered, let her also have her hair cut. But if it is a shameful [thing ]for a woman to have her hair cut, or to be shaved, let her be covered.
6 So if a woman is not veiled, let her hair be cut off. Truly then, if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off, or to have her head shaven, then she should cover her head.
6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.
7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man.
7 Certainly, a man ought not to cover his head, for he is the image and glory of God. But woman is the glory of man.
8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man.
8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man
8 For the man was not created from the woman; but the woman was created from the man.
9 Nor was man created for woman, but woman for the man.
9 for neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man
9 And indeed, man was not created for woman, but woman was created for man.
10 Because of this, the woman ought to have a [symbol] [of] authority on her head, because of the angels.
10 Therefore, a woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head, because of the Angels.
10 For this reason the woman ought to be modest and cover her head, as a mark of respect to the angels.
11 Nevertheless, neither is the man apart from the woman, nor the woman apart from the man, in YHWH.
11 Yet truly, man would not exist without woman, nor would woman exist without man, in the Lord.
12 For as the woman is from the man, even so the man is by the woman; but all things are of God.
12 For just as woman came into existence from man, so also does man exist through woman. But all things are from God.
13 Judge among yourselves. Is it proper for a woman to pray to God uncovered?
13 Judge ye in yourselves: is it seemly that a woman pray unto God unveiled?
13 Judge for yourselves, Is it comely for a woman to pray to God with uncovered head?
14 Does not nature itself teach you, that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him?
14 Does not even nature herself teach you that, indeed, if a man grows his hair long, it is a disgrace for him?
14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
15 But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory for her; because her long hair has been given [to her] in place of a covering.
15 Yet truly, if a woman grows her hair long, it is a glory for her, because her hair has been given to her as a covering.
16 But if anyone seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, nor do the churches of God.
16 But if any man dispute these things, we have no precedent, neither has the church of God.
