1 Corinthians 11
Imitate a me, just as I also imitate Christ.
Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things and keep the traditions just as I delivered them to you.
But I want you to know that b the head of every man is Christ, c the head of woman is man, and d the head of Christ is God.
Every man praying or e prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head.
But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, for that is one and the same as if her head were f shaved.
For if a woman is not covered, let her also be shorn. But if it is g shameful for a woman to be shorn or shaved, let her be covered.
For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since h he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man.
For man is not from woman, but woman i from man.
Nor was man created for the woman, but woman j for the man.
For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels.
Nevertheless, k neither is man independent of woman, nor woman independent of man, in the Lord.
For as woman came from man, even so man also comes through woman; but all things are from God.
Judge among yourselves. Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him?
But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her for a covering.
But l if anyone seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, m nor do the churches of God.
Now in giving these instructions I do not praise you, since you come together not for the better but for the worse.
For first of all, when you come together as a church, n I hear that there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it.
For o there must also be factions among you, p that those who are approved may be recognized among you.
Therefore when you come together in one place, it is not to eat the Lord's Supper.
For in eating, each one takes his own supper ahead of others; and one is hungry and q another is drunk.
What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise r the church of God and s shame those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I do not praise you.
For t I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: u that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread;
and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me."
In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me."
For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death v till He comes.
Therefore whoever eats w this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
But x let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep.
For y if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.
But when we are judged, z we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
Therefore, my brethren, when you a come together to eat, wait for one another.
But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest you come together for judgment. And the rest I will set in order when I come.

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.
And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church.
But, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head - Christ -
For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.
And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.
And not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from God.
To the woman He said: I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; In pain you shall bring forth children; Your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you.
For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.
You have heard Me say to you, 'I am going away and coming back to you.' If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, 'I am going to the Father,' for My Father is greater than I.
1 Corinthians 12:10

Then the priest shall stand the woman before the LORD, uncover the woman's head, and put the offering for remembering in her hands, which is the grain offering of jealousy. And the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that brings a curse.
Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
This is the book of the genealogy of Adam. In the day that God created man, He made him in the likeness of God.
Whoever sheds man's blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man.
With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.

"(yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed."
