1 Corinthians 11:2-16

1 Corinthians 11:2-16 (ESV)  Now I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions even as I delivered them to you.  [3]  But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.  [4]  Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head,  [5]  but every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven.  [6]  For if a wife will not cover her head, then she should cut her hair short. But since it is disgraceful for a wife to cut off her hair or shave her head, let her cover her head.  [7]  For a man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God, but woman is the glory of man.  [8]  For man was not made from woman, but woman from man.  [9]  Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.  [10]  That is why a wife ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels.  [11]  Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man nor man of woman;  [12]  for as woman was made from man, so man is now born of woman. And all things are from God.  [13]  Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a wife to pray to God with her head uncovered?  [14]  Does not nature itself teach you that if a man wears long hair it is a disgrace for him,  [15]  but if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For her hair is given to her for a covering.  [16]  If anyone is inclined to be contentious, we have no such practice, nor do the churches of God.
