Bible: 1 Corinthians 14:34-40

14:34 the women 1  should be silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak. 2  Rather, let them be in submission, as in fact the law says. 14:35 If they want to find out about something, they should ask their husbands at home, because it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in church. 3  14:36 Did the word of God begin with you, 4  or did it come to you alone?

14:37 If anyone considers himself a prophet or spiritual person, he should acknowledge that what I write to you is the Lord’s command. 14:38 If someone does not recognize this, he is not recognized. 14:39 So then, brothers and sisters, 5  be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid anyone from speaking in tongues. 6  14:40 And do everything in a decent and orderly manner.
