Christian Order

11 Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.

Now I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold firmly to the traditions, just as I delivered them to you. But I want you to understand that [a]Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of [b]Christ. Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head. 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 [c]whose head is shaved. For if a woman does not cover [d]her head, let her also [e]have her hair cut off; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to [f]have her hair cut off or [g]her head shaved, let her cover [h]her head. 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. For man [i]does not originate from woman, but woman from man; for indeed man was not created for the woman’s sake, but woman for the man’s sake. 10 Therefore the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. 11 However, in the Lord, neither is woman [j]independent of man, nor is man [k]independent of woman. 12 For as the woman [l]originates from the man, so also the man has his birth through the woman; and all things [m]originate from God. 13 Judge [n]for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him, 15 but if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her? For her hair is given to her for a covering. 16 But if one is inclined to be contentious, we have no [o]other practice, nor have the churches of God.

17 But in giving this instruction, I do not praise you, because you come together not for the better but for the worse. 18 For, in the first place, when you come together [p]as a church, I hear that [q]divisions exist among you; and in part I believe it. 19 For there must also be factions among you, so that those who are approved may become [r]evident among you. 20 Therefore when you meet together, it is not to eat the Lord’s Supper, 21 for in your eating each one takes his own supper first; and one is hungry and another is drunk. 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

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; 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.” 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.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.

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. 28 But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly. 30 For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number [s]sleep. 31 But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world.

33 So then, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. 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.

1 Corinthians 11 New International Version (NIV)

11 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.

On Covering the Head in Worship

I praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to the traditions just as I passed them on to you. But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man,[a] and the head of Christ is God. Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is the same as having her head shaved. For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.

A man ought not to cover his head,[b] since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10 It is for this reason that a woman ought to have authority over her own[c] head, because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.

13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering. 16 If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice—nor do the churches of God.

Correcting an Abuse of the Lord’s Supper

17 In the following directives I have no praise for you, for your meetings do more harm than good. 18 In the first place, I hear that when you come together as a church, there are divisions among you, and to some extent I believe it. 19 No doubt there have to be differences among you to show which of you have God’s approval. 20 So then, when you come together, it is not the Lord’s Supper you eat, 21 for when you are eating, some of you go ahead with your own private suppers. As a result, one person remains hungry and another gets drunk. 22 Don’t you have homes to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God by humiliating those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you? Certainly not in this matter!

23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 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.” 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

27 So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. 29 For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves. 30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep. 31 But if we were more discerning with regard to ourselves, we would not come under such judgment. 32 Nevertheless, when we are judged in this way by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be finally condemned with the world.

33 So then, my brothers and sisters, when you gather to eat, you should all eat together. 34 Anyone who is hungry should eat something at home, so that when you meet together it may not result in judgment.

And when I come I will give further directions.

A man ought not to have long hair

Christian Order

11 Imitate me, just as I imitate Christ.

I praise and appreciate you because you remember me in everything and you firmly hold to the [a]traditions [the substance of my instructions], just as I have passed them on to you. But I want you to understand that Christ is the head (authority over) of every man, and man is the head of woman, and God is the head of Christ. Every man who prays or [b]prophesies with something on his head dishonors his head [and the One who is his head]. And every woman who prays or prophesies when she has her [c]head uncovered disgraces her head; for she is one and the same as the [d]woman whose head is shaved [in disgrace]. If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and [e]if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, she should cover her head. A man ought not have his head covered [during worship], since he is the image and [reflected] glory of God; but the woman is [the expression of] man’s glory. For man does not originate from woman, but woman from man; for indeed man was not created for the sake of woman, but woman for the sake of man. 10 Therefore the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head, [f]for the sake of the angels [so as not to offend them]. 11 Nevertheless, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12 For as the woman originates from the man, so also man is born through the woman; and all things [whether male or female] originate from God [as their Creator]. 13 [g]Judge for yourselves; is it proper for a woman to offer prayer to God [publicly] with her head uncovered? 14 Does not common sense itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him, 15 but if a woman has long hair, it is her ornament and glory? For her long hair is given to her as a covering. 16 Now if anyone is inclined to be contentious [about this], we have no other practice [in worship than this], nor do the churches of God [in general].

17 But in giving this next instruction, I do not praise you, because when you meet together it is not for the better but for the worse. 18 For, in the first place, when you meet together in church, I hear that there are divisions among you; and in part I believe it, 19 for [doubtless] there have to be factions among you, so that those who are of approved character may be clearly recognized among you. 20 So when you meet together, it is not to eat the [h]Lord’s Supper, 21 for when you eat, each one hurries to get his own supper first [not waiting for others or the poor]. So one goes hungry while another gets drunk. 22 What! Do you not have houses in which to eat and drink? Or do you show contempt for the church of God and humiliate those [impoverished believers] who have nothing? What will I say to you? Shall I praise you for this? In this I will not praise you!

The Lord’s Supper

23 [i]For I received from the Lord Himself that [instruction] which I passed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is (represents) My body, which is [offered as a sacrifice] for you. Do this in [affectionate] remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same way, after supper He took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant [ratified and established] in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in [affectionate] remembrance of Me.” 26 For every time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you are [symbolically] proclaiming [the fact of] the Lord’s death until He comes [again].

27 So then whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in a way that is unworthy [of Him] will be guilty of [profaning and sinning against] the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But a person must [prayerfully] examine himself [and his relationship to Christ], and only when he has done so should he eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For anyone who eats and drinks [without solemn reverence and heartfelt gratitude for the sacrifice of Christ], eats and drinks a judgment on himself if he does not [j]recognize the body [of Christ]. 30 That [careless and unworthy participation] is the reason why many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep [in death]. 31 But if we evaluated and judged ourselves honestly [recognizing our shortcomings and correcting our behavior], we would not be judged. 32 But when we [fall short and] are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined [by undergoing His correction] so that we will not be condemned [to eternal punishment] along with the world.

33 So then, my brothers and sisters, when you come together to eat [the Lord’s Supper], wait for one another [and see to it that no one is left out]. 34 If anyone is too hungry [to wait], let him eat at home, so that you will not come together for judgment [on yourselves]. About the remaining matters [of which I was informed], I will take care of them when I come.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 Corinthians 11:2 The following discourse covers appropriate conduct and relationships within the church, as well as within church-related activities.
  2. 1 Corinthians 11:4 The references to men or women prophesying (here and v 5) indicate that Paul has church meetings in mind, where the speaker is leading the congregation in prayer or addressing them.
  3. 1 Corinthians 11:5 In public, respectable women wore their hair done up in a modest style. In the Greco-Roman-Jewish culture of the time, hair worn down and loose would suggest a woman of questionable morals.
  4. 1 Corinthians 11:5 Possibly the mark of an adulteress or prostitute, but likely a sign of disgrace for any number of reasons. In one of Aristophanes’ comedies, for example, head shaving is recommended for a woman whose son is cowardly or otherwise worthless.
  5. 1 Corinthians 11:6 There is little doubt that this would appear disgraceful and embarrassing, but Paul is essentially providing his readers a simple way to determine for themselves if a woman should cover her head while prophesying or leading prayer in church.
  6. 1 Corinthians 11:10 This may be an indication that angels are present at gatherings of believers.
  7. 1 Corinthians 11:13 This verse acknowledges custom as another, separate argument for a woman’s head covering (v 5).
  8. 1 Corinthians 11:20 When Christ instituted the Lord’s Supper (or the Lord’s Table), it was the Passover meal with the special rituals and explanations that He introduced (Matt 26:26 ff; Luke 22:15 ff). The description given here indicates that the early church celebrated the Lord’s Supper in similar fashion by having a full meal (the so-called agape “love” feast) that included the special rites with the bread and wine (see v 21).
  9. 1 Corinthians 11:23 Many scholars believe this may be the first written description of the Lord’s Supper since this letter from Paul is dated earlier than any of the Gospels.
  10. 1 Corinthians 11:29 I.e. respect Christ’s sacrifice and his fellow believers for whom Christ also died.

1 Coríntios 11 Almeida Revista e Corrigida 2009 (ARC)

11 Sede meus imitadores, como também eu, de Cristo.

Como as mulheres devem apresentar-se na igreja

E louvo-vos, irmãos, porque em tudo vos lembrais de mim e retendes os preceitos como vo-los entreguei. Mas quero que saibais que Cristo é a cabeça de todo varão, e o varão, a cabeça da mulher; e Deus, a cabeça de Cristo. Todo homem que ora ou profetiza, tendo a cabeça coberta, desonra a sua própria cabeça. Mas toda mulher que ora ou profetiza com a cabeça descoberta desonra a sua própria cabeça, porque é como se estivesse rapada. Portanto, se a mulher não se cobre com véu, tosquie-se também. Mas, se para a mulher é coisa indecente tosquiar-se ou rapar-se, que ponha o véu. O varão, pois, não deve cobrir a cabeça, porque é a imagem e glória de Deus, mas a mulher é a glória do varão. Porque o varão não provém da mulher, mas a mulher, do varão. Porque também o varão não foi criado por causa da mulher, mas a mulher, por causa do varão. 10 Portanto, a mulher deve ter sobre a cabeça sinal de poderio, por causa dos anjos. 11 Todavia, nem o varão é sem a mulher, nem a mulher, sem o varão, no Senhor. 12 Porque, como a mulher provém do varão, assim também o varão provém da mulher, mas tudo vem de Deus. 13 Julgai entre vós mesmos: é decente que a mulher ore a Deus descoberta? 14 Ou não vos ensina a mesma natureza que é desonra para o varão ter cabelo crescido? 15 Mas ter a mulher cabelo crescido lhe é honroso, porque o cabelo lhe foi dado em lugar de véu. 16 Mas, se alguém quiser ser contencioso, nós não temos tal costume, nem as igrejas de Deus.

Dissensões nas ceias de irmãos. O modo de celebrar a Santa Ceia do Senhor

17 Nisto, porém, que vou dizer-vos, não vos louvo, porquanto vos ajuntais, não para melhor, senão para pior. 18 Porque, antes de tudo, ouço que, quando vos ajuntais na igreja, há entre vós dissensões; e em parte o creio. 19 E até importa que haja entre vós heresias, para que os que são sinceros se manifestem entre vós. 20 De sorte que, quando vos ajuntais num lugar, não é para comer a Ceia do Senhor. 21 Porque, comendo, cada um toma antecipadamente a sua própria ceia; e assim um tem fome, e outro embriaga-se. 22 Não tendes, porventura, casas para comer e para beber? Ou desprezais a igreja de Deus e envergonhais os que nada têm? Que vos direi? Louvar-vos-ei? Nisso não vos louvo.

23 Porque eu recebi do Senhor o que também vos ensinei: que o Senhor Jesus, na noite em que foi traído, tomou o pão; 24 e, tendo dado graças, o partiu e disse: Tomai, comei; isto é o meu corpo que é partido por vós; fazei isto em memória de mim. 25 Semelhantemente também, depois de cear, tomou o cálice, dizendo: Este cálice é o Novo Testamento no meu sangue; fazei isto, todas as vezes que beberdes, em memória de mim. 26 Porque, todas as vezes que comerdes este pão e beberdes este cálice, anunciais a morte do Senhor, até que venha. 27 Portanto, qualquer que comer este pão ou beber o cálice do Senhor, indignamente, será culpado do corpo e do sangue do Senhor. 28 Examine-se, pois, o homem a si mesmo, e assim coma deste pão, e beba deste cálice. 29 Porque o que come e bebe indignamente come e bebe para sua própria condenação, não discernindo o corpo do Senhor. 30 Por causa disso, há entre vós muitos fracos e doentes e muitos que dormem. 31 Porque, se nós nos julgássemos a nós mesmos, não seríamos julgados. 32 Mas, quando somos julgados, somos repreendidos pelo Senhor, para não sermos condenados com o mundo.

33 Portanto, meus irmãos, quando vos ajuntais para comer, esperai uns pelos outros. 34 Mas, se algum tiver fome, coma em casa, para que vos não ajunteis para condenação. Quanto às demais coisas, ordená-las-ei quando for ter convosco.

1 Coríntios 11 Nova Versão Internacional (NVI-PT)

11 Tornem-se meus imitadores, como eu o sou de Cristo.

Instruções sobre a Adoração

Eu os elogio por se lembrarem de mim em tudo e por se apegarem às tradições exatamente como eu as transmiti a vocês.

Quero, porém, que entendam que o cabeça de todo homem é Cristo, e o cabeça da mulher é o homem, e o cabeça de Cristo é Deus. Todo homem que ora ou profetiza com a cabeça coberta desonra a sua cabeça; e toda mulher que ora ou profetiza com a cabeça descoberta desonra a sua cabeça; pois é como se a tivesse rapada. Se a mulher não cobre a cabeça, deve também cortar o cabelo; se, porém, é vergonhoso para a mulher ter o cabelo cortado ou rapado, ela deve cobrir a cabeça. O homem não deve cobrir a cabeça, visto que ele é imagem e glória de Deus; mas a mulher é glória do homem. Pois o homem não se originou da mulher, mas a mulher do homem; além disso, o homem não foi criado por causa da mulher, mas a mulher por causa do homem. 10 Por essa razão e por causa dos anjos, a mulher deve ter sobre a cabeça um sinal de autoridade.

11 No Senhor, todavia, a mulher não é independente do homem, nem o homem independente da mulher. 12 Pois, assim como a mulher proveio do homem, também o homem nasce da mulher. Mas tudo provém de Deus. 13 Julguem entre vocês mesmos: é apropriado a uma mulher orar a Deus com a cabeça descoberta? 14 A própria natureza das coisas não lhes ensina que é uma desonra para o homem ter cabelo comprido, 15 e que o cabelo comprido é uma glória para a mulher? Pois o cabelo comprido foi lhe dado como manto. 16 Mas se alguém quiser fazer polêmica a esse respeito, nós não temos esse costume, nem as igrejas de Deus.

A Ceia do Senhor

17 Entretanto, nisto que lhes vou dizer não os elogio, pois as reuniões de vocês mais fazem mal do que bem. 18 Em primeiro lugar, ouço que, quando vocês se reúnem como igreja, há divisões entre vocês, e até certo ponto eu o creio. 19 Pois é necessário que haja divergências entre vocês, para que sejam conhecidos quais dentre vocês são aprovados. 20 Quando vocês se reúnem, não é para comer a ceia do Senhor, 21 porque cada um come sua própria ceia sem esperar pelos outros. Assim, enquanto um fica com fome, outro se embriaga. 22 Será que vocês não têm casa onde comer e beber? Ou desprezam a igreja de Deus e humilham os que nada têm? Que lhes direi? Eu os elogiarei por isso? Certamente que não!

23 Pois recebi do Senhor o que também lhes entreguei: Que o Senhor Jesus, na noite em que foi traído, tomou o pão 24 e, tendo dado graças, partiu-o e disse: “Isto é o meu corpo, que é dado em favor de vocês; façam isto em memória de mim”. 25 Da mesma forma, depois da ceia ele tomou o cálice e disse: “Este cálice é a nova aliança no meu sangue; façam isso sempre que o beberem em memória de mim”. 26 Porque, sempre que comerem deste pão e beberem deste cálice, vocês anunciam a morte do Senhor até que ele venha.

27 Portanto, todo aquele que comer o pão ou beber o cálice do Senhor indignamente será culpado de pecar contra o corpo e o sangue do Senhor. 28 Examine-se cada um a si mesmo, e então coma do pão e beba do cálice. 29 Pois quem come e bebe sem discernir o corpo do Senhor, come e bebe para sua própria condenação. 30 Por isso há entre vocês muitos fracos e doentes, e vários já dormiram. 31 Mas, se nós tivéssemos o cuidado de examinar a nós mesmos, não receberíamos juízo. 32 Quando, porém, somos julgados pelo Senhor, estamos sendo disciplinados para que não sejamos condenados com o mundo.

33 Portanto, meus irmãos, quando vocês se reunirem para comer, esperem uns pelos outros. 34 Se alguém estiver com fome, coma em casa, para que, quando vocês se reunirem, isso não resulte em condenação.

Quanto ao mais, quando eu for lhes darei instruções.
