1 Corinthians 11:11-16 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

11 Nevertheless neither the man is without the woman, neither the woman is without [the] man, in the Lord.

12 For why as the woman is of the man, so [and] the man is by the woman; but all things be of God.

13 Deem ye yourselves; beseemeth it a woman not covered on the head to pray to God? [Ye yourselves deem; becometh, or beseemeth, it a woman not veiled, or covered, to pray to God?]

14 Neither the nature itself teacheth us [that], for if a man nourish long hair, it is shame to him; [Neither the kind itself teacheth us that, for if a man nourish long hair, it is evil fame to him;]

15 but if a woman nourish long hair, it is glory to her, for hairs be given to her for covering.

16 But if any man is seen to be full of strife, we have none such custom, neither the church of God.

1 Corinthians 11:11-16 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

11 Nevertheless, neither is the man independent of the woman, nor the woman independent of the man in the Lord. 12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man by the woman; but all is of God.

13 Judge in yourselves if it is befitting that a woman pray to God bare-headed. 14 Or does not nature teach you that it is discreditable for a man if he has long hair, 15 and brings praise to a woman if she has long hair? For her hair is given her to cover her with. 16 If there is anyone among you who is inclined to argue, let him know that we have no such custom, nor do the congregations of God.

1 Corinthians 11:11-16 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

11 [a]Nevertheless, neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man [b]in the Lord.

12 For as the woman is of the man, so is the man also by the woman: but all things are of God.

13 [c]Judge in yourselves, Is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?

14 Doth not nature itself teach you, that if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a praise unto her: for her hair is given her for a [d]covering.

16 [e]But if any man list to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the Churches of God.

  1. 1 Corinthians 11:11 A digression which the Apostle useth, lest that which he spake of the superior tie of men, and the lower degrees of women in consideration of the policy of the Church, should be so taken as though there were no measure of this inequality. Therefore he teacheth that men have in such sort the preeminence, that God made them not alone, but women also: and woman was so made of man, that men also are born by the means of women, and this ought to put them in mind to observe the degree of every sex, in such sort that mutual conjunction may be cherished.
  2. 1 Corinthians 11:11 By the Lord.
  3. 1 Corinthians 11:13 He urgeth the argument taken from the common sense of nature.
