1 Corinthians 11:7-9 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

A man, in fact, should not cover his head, because he is God’s image and glory, but woman is man’s glory. For man did not come from woman, but woman came from man. And man was not created for woman, but woman for man.

Wives and Husbands

Your beauty should not consist of outward things like elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold ornaments[b] or fine clothes. Instead, it should consist of what is inside[c] the heart with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very valuable in God’s eyes. For in the past, the holy women who put their hope in God also beautified themselves in this way, submitting to their own husbands, just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. You have become her children when you do what is good and are not frightened by anything alarming.
