1 Corinthians 11:1-34, NLT
1 Corinthians 11
Instructions for Public Worship
2I am so glad that you always keep me in your thoughts, and that you are following the teachings I passed on to you.
7A man should not wear anything on his head when worshiping, for man is made in God’s image and reflects God’s glory. And woman reflects man’s glory.
11But among the Lord’s people, women are not independent of men, and men are not independent of women.
13Judge for yourselves. Is it right for a woman to pray to God in public without covering her head?
Order at the Lord’s Supper
17But in the following instructions, I cannot praise you. For it sounds as if more harm than good is done when you meet together.
20When you meet together, you are not really interested in the Lord’s Supper.
23For I pass on to you what I received from the Lord himself. On the night when he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread
27So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of sinning against*11:27 Or is responsible for. the body and blood of the Lord.
31But if we would examine ourselves, we would not be judged by God in this way.
33So, my dear brothers and sisters,*11:33 Greek brothers. when you gather for the Lord’s Supper, wait for each other.
