Women’s head covering



1. Why ought the woman to cover her head with a veil when she prays or prophesies?



She ought to cover her head because of the angels, for Paul says: “For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels” (1 Corinthians 11:10) – NKJV). And what will happen if she does not cover her head? She will dishonor man, that is, her head.

Obviously, when the Scripture says that the woman ought to cover her head, it refers to believing women who are married as well as to believing women who are not married, and also to widows and divorced women, for in each one of these cases the head of woman is man.
