Covering, For The Head

COVERING, FOR THE HEAD [ISBE]

COVERING, FOR THE HEAD - kuv'-er-ing, (peribolaion): Mentioned in the New Testament only in 1 Cor 11:15: "For her hair is given her for a covering," literally, "something cast round," probably equivalent to "veil" (which see). Read in the light of the context: "Every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonoreth her head" (verse 5). The meaning would seem to be that Nature itself, in providing women with a natural veil, has taught the lesson underlying the prevailing custom, that woman should not be unveiled in the public assemblies.
