    VERSE (6) -
    Nu 5:18 De 22:5

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:6

    Porque si la mujer no se cubre, trasquílese tambin; y si es vergonzoso a la mujer trasquilarse o raerse, cbrase (la cabeza).

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 11:6

    Verse 6. For if the
    woman be not covered] If she will not wear a veil in the public assemblies, let her be shorn-let her carry a public badge of infamy: but if it be a shame-if to be shorn or shaven would appear, as it must, a badge of infamy, then let her be covered-let her by all means wear a veil. Even in mourning it was considered disgraceful to be obliged to shear off the hair; and lest they should lose this ornament of their heads, the women contrived to evade the custom, by cutting off the ends of it only. Euripides, in Orest., ver. 128, speaking of Helen, who should have shaved her head on account of the death of her sister Clytemnestra, says: eidete par akrav wv apeqrisen tricav, swzousa kallov, esti de h palai gunh: "see how she cuts off only the very points of her hair, that she may preserve her beauty, and is just the same woman as before." See the note on the preceding verse.

    In Hindostan a woman cuts off her hair at the death of her husband, as a token of widowhood; but this is never performed by a married woman, whose hair is considered an essential ornament. The veil of the Hindoo women is nothing more than the garment brought over the face, which is always very carefully done by the higher classes of women when they appear in the streets. - Ward's Customs.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. For if the woman be not covered , etc.] That is, if her head is not covered with some sort of covering, as is the custom of the place where she lives, let her also be shorn ; let her hair be cut short; let her wear it as men do theirs; and let her see how she will look, and how she will like that, and how she will be looked upon, and liked by others; everybody will laugh at her, and she will be ashamed of herself: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven : as it is accounted in all civilized nations: the very Heathens speak of it as a thing abominable, and of which there should not be one single dreadful example: then let her be covered; with a veil, or any sort of covering in common use.

    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.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    6. Shorn or shaven (keirasqai h xurasqai). To have the
    hair cut close, or to be entirely shaved as with a razor.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    11:6 {Let her also be shorn} (kai keirasqw). Aorist middle imperative of keirw, to
    shear (as sheep). Let her cut her hair close. A single act by the woman. {If it is a shame} (ei de aiscron). Condition of first class assumed to be true. aiscron is old adjective from aiscos, bareness, disgrace. Clearly Paul uses such strong language because of the effect on a woman's reputation in Corinth by such conduct that proclaimed her a lewd woman. Social custom varied in the world qen as now, but there was no alternative in Corinth. {To be shorn or shaven} (to keirasqai kai xurasqai). Articular infinitives subject of copula estin understood, keirasqai first aorist middle, xurasqai present middle. Note change in tense. {Let her be veiled} (katakaluptesqw). Present middle imperative of old compound kata-kaluptw, here alone in N.T. Let her cover up herself with the veil (down, kata, the Greek says, the veil hanging down from the head).
