For we indeed have many members in one body, but all the members have not the same office: so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and members one of another. But having gifts differing according to the grace given unto us, whether prophecy, it is according to the analogy of faith; read more.
or ministry, it is in the ministry; or he that teacheth, in teaching; or he that exhorteth, in exhortation; or he that giveth, with a single eye; he that presideth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness.

Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? then taking the members of Christ, shall I make them the members of a harlot? it could not be so. Do you not know that he who is joined to the harlot is one body? for it says, They two shall be one flesh. But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit.

The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? Because we, being many, are one bread, one body: for we all partake of one bread.


and what the excellent majesty of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of the power of his might which he has wrought in Christ, raising him from the dead, and seating him on his right hand in the heavenlies, above all government, and authority, and power, and lordship, and every name named, not only in this age, but in the age to come: read more.
and has subordinated all things beneath his feet, and given him to be head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fulness of him who fills all things in all.

Therefore I, the prisoner in the Lord, exhort you to walk worthily of the calling with which you are called, with all humility and meekness, with long suffering, forbearing one another in divine love; endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. read more.
There is one body and one Spirit, as ye indeed are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and above you all, and in all. And to each one of you grace is given according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Therefore he says, Having ascended upon high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts to the people. But what is that which ascended, except that which descended into the lower parts of the earth? But the one having descended and the one having ascended above all the heavens, that he might fill all things, is the same. And he gave some, apostles; some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; unto the perfection of the saints, in the work of the ministry, in the edification of the body of Christ: until we may all come into the unity of the faith, and of the perfect knowledge of the Son of God, into a perfect man, into the measure of the likeness of the fulness of Christ: in order that we may be no longer infants, tossed by the waves and carried about by every wind of teaching, in the caprice of the people, in their craftiness, pursuant to their method of delusion; but speaking the truth in divine love, let its grow up in him in all things, who is the head, Christ; from whom the whole body, being assimilated and knitted together through every joint of the supply, according to the working in each several part, makes increase of the body in the edification of itself in divine love.

Wives, be submissive to your own husbands, as to the Lord, because the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is also the head of the church, being himself the saviour of the body. But as the church is submissive to Christ, so also let the wives be to their husbands in everything. read more.
Husbands, love your wives with divine love, as Christ also loved the church with divine love, and gave himself for her; in order that he might sanctify her, having purified her by the washing of water through the word, in order that he might present to himself the glorious church, having not spot or wrinkle or any of such things; but that she might be holy and blameless. So the husbands ought to love their own wives with divine love as their own bodies. The one loving his own wife is loving himself: for no one ever yet hated his own flesh; but he nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ also the church; because we are members of his body: on account of this a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave unto his wife: and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak in reference to Christ and the church. Moreover you also each one thus love his own wife with divine love as himself; and that the wife also reverence the husband.

giving thanks to the Father, who has made us worthy unto a participation of the inheritance of the saints in light; who delivered us from the power of darkness, and transplanted us into the kingdom of the Son of his love; in whom we have redemption, the remission of sins: read more.
who is the image of the invisible God, being the first begotten of all creation, because in him all things are created, in the heavens and upon the earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All things were created by him, and unto him; and he before all things, and all things consist in him: and himself is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the first begotten from the dead, in order that in all things himself may be preeminent: because in him all fulness is pleased to dwell; and through him, to reconcile all things unto himself, having made peace through the blood of his cross: through him, whether things upon the earth, or things in the heavens.

ruling his own house beautifully; having children in subordination with all gravity; but if any one does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?


For a man ought not to cover his head, being the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not from the woman; but the woman is from the man; for man indeed was not created on account of the woman; but the woman on account of the man.

But I praise you because you remember me in all things, and hold fast the commandments, as I delivered them unto you. But I wish you to know, that Christ is the head of every man; and the man is the head of the woman, and God is the head of Christ.

But I praise you because you remember me in all things, and hold fast the commandments, as I delivered them unto you. But I wish you to know, that Christ is the head of every man; and the man is the head of the woman, and God is the head of Christ. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonors his head. read more.
But every woman praying or prophesying with her head uncovered dishonors her head: for that is one and the same to her being shaven. If a woman is not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it is a disgrace for a woman to be shorn or shaven; let her be covered. For a man ought not to cover his head, being the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not from the woman; but the woman is from the man; for man indeed was not created on account of the woman; but the woman on account of the man. Therefore the woman ought to have authority on her head, on account of the angels. Moreover neither is the woman without the man in the Lord, nor the man without the woman. For as the woman is from the man, so the man also is by the woman; and all things from God. Judge ye among yourselves: is it becoming for a woman to pray to God uncovered? Does not nature itself teach you, that, if a man may indeed have long hair, it is a dishonor to him? But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory unto her: because the hair has been given to her for a covering. If any one seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, nor do the churches of God.

Let a woman learn in silence in all submission; but I do not permit a woman to dictate or usurp authority over her husband, but to be in silence. For Adam was first created, then Eve. read more.
And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression;
