[b-greek] 1 cor 11:14

i wonder if others would object to my translating 1 cor 11:14 as follows-

"does not nature itself teach you that if a male has plumed hair it is a
dishonorable thing?"

i have translated "komaw" with "plumed" instead of the standard "long". it
seems to me that Paul is not talking about the length of hair but with folk
over concerned with physical appearance.



*sometimes gadfly of the list*
