1 Corinthians 11:2-16New American Standard Bible (NASB)
2 Now I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold firmly to the traditions, just as I handed them down to you.3 But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and [a]the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ.4 Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head.5 But every woman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying disgraces her head, for it is one and the same as the woman [b]whose head is shaved.6 For if a woman does not cover [c]her head, have her also [d]cut her hair off; however, if it is disgraceful for a woman to [e]have her hair cut off or [f]her head shaved, have her cover [g]her head.7 For a man should not have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.8 For man [h]does not originate from woman, but woman from man;9 for indeed man was not created for the woman’s sake, but woman for the man’s sake.10 Therefore the woman should have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels.11 However, in the Lord, neither is woman [i]independent of man, nor is man [j]independent of woman.12 For as the woman originated from the man, so also the man has his birth through the woman; and all things originatefrom God.13 Judge [k]for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?14 Does even nature itself not 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 as a covering.16 But if anyone is inclined to be contentious, we have no [l]such practice, nor have the churches of God.
