“Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:”
King James Version (KJV)

Isaiah 30:1 is referring to the Holy Spirit as the only legitimate covering for a person.
1 Chorinthians 2 Verses 1 and 2 are an exhortation to follow Christ. Verses 3-15 state a practice that was prevalent
in the Chorinthian church and the reasons to justify it.
Verse 16 states that what is described in verses 3-15 does not come from God - 'But if any man seem to be
contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.'

The lord god is a son and shield to all who believe and will also give same grace and glory and bever will he with hold anything good from such people.

1 Corinthians chapter 11 gives the ruling on head covering, of both men & women. The instruction is clearly that of a physical head covering & the reason for that is because of the order of creation (Christ is the head of man, as man is the head of woman) & for the observance of angelic beings in our corporate worship (v 10). This instruction was never to be a burden for women, as in those days particularly, it was quite natural for the head to be covered. But there may have been some who refused to do so, & therefore this instruction was given. And this applied to men who wilfully refused to remove their covering. All these actions were dishonouring to the Lord & showed contempt for each other.
Why is this not generally practised today? Various reasons are given, chiefly because of it not being culturally done/acceptable in general society, except for protection from the sun or for fashion at events. Each one of us must be convinced in our own hearts over this matter & to be careful not to be in judgement over another thus falling into sin.

When the Bible speaks of women covering the head, is it talking biblically to cover with the spirit of the Lord ? Or an actual head covering before we pray?
