    VERSE (15) -
    :15

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:15

    Por el contrario, a la mujer criar el cabello le es honroso; porque por cubierta le es dado el cabello.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 11:15

    Verse 15. But if a
    woman have long hair] The Author of their being has given a larger proportion of hair to the head of women than to that of men; and to them it is an especial ornament, and may in various cases serve as a veil.

    It is a certain fact that a man's long hair renders him contemptible, and a woman's long hair renders her more amiable. Nature and the apostle speak the same language; we may account for it as we please.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. But if a woman have long hair , etc.] And wears it, without cutting it, as men do: it is a glory to her ; it is comely and beautiful; it is agreeable to her sex, she looks like herself; it becomes and adorns her: for her hair is given her for a covering ; not instead of a covering for her head, or any other part of her body, so that she needs no other: we read indeed of the daughter of Nicodemus ben Gorion, that she was obliged to make use of her hair for a covering in such a sense f226 ; it happened to R. Jochanan ben Zaccai that he rode upon an ass, and went out of Jerusalem, and his disciples went after him; he saw a young woman gathering barley corns out of the dung of the Arabian cattle; when she saw him, hr[b hpj[tn , she covered herself with her hair, and stood before him: but this covering was made use of, not of choice, but by force, through her poverty, she having no other; this was not the custom of the nation, nor was the hair given to women for a covering in this sense, nor used by them as such, unless by Eve before the fall; but is rather an indication that they want another covering for their head, it not being so decent that their long hair should be seen. The Jewish women used to esteem it an immodest thing for their hair to be seen, and therefore they took care, as much as possible, to hide it under another covering; one woman, whose name was Kimchith, had seven sons, and they all ministered in the high priesthood; the wise men said unto her, what hast thou done, that thou art so worthy? she replied to them, all my days the beams of my house never saw yr[ y[lq , the plaits of my hair f227 ; that is, they were never seen by any person, even within her house.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 2-16 - Here begin particulars respecting the
    public assemblies, ch. 1Co 14. I the abundance of spiritual gifts bestowed on the Corinthians, some abuses had crept in; but as Christ did the will, and sought the honou of God, so the Christian should avow his subjection to Christ, doin his will and seeking his glory. We should, even in our dress and habit avoid every thing that may dishonour Christ. The woman was made subjec to man, because made for his help and comfort. And she should d nothing, in Christian assemblies, which looked like a claim of being equal. She ought to have "power," that is, a veil, on her head, becaus of the angels. Their presence should keep Christians from all that is wrong while in the worship of God. Nevertheless, the man and the woma were made for one another. They were to be mutual comforts an blessings, not one a slave, and the other a tyrant. God has so settle matters, both in the kingdom of providence and that of grace, that the authority and subjection of each party should be for mutual help an benefit. It was the common usage of the churches, for women to appea in public assemblies, and join in public worship, veiled; and it wa right that they should do so. The Christian religion sanctions nationa customs wherever these are not against the great principles of trut and holiness; affected singularities receive no countenance from an thing in the Bible.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    11:15 {Have
    long hair} (komai). Present active subjunctive of komaw (from kome, hair), old verb, same contraction (-aei=ai) as the indicative (aei = ai), but subjunctive here with ean in third class condition. Long hair is a glory to a woman and a disgrace to a man (as we still feel). The long-haired man! There is a papyrus example of a priest accused of letting his hair grow long and of wearing woollen garments. {For a covering} (anti peribolaiou). Old word from periballw to fling around, as a mantle (#Heb 1:12) or a covering or veil as here. It is not in the place of a veil, but answering to (anti, in the sense of anti in #Joh 1:16), as a permanent endowment (dedotai, perfect passive indicative).
