Sec.xx, end). (Vines)

this sound judgment and focus on spiritual matters is to have the effect of removing our attentions from this worldConform - This word carries the idea of changing that which is outward. This passage is not merely saying not to have certain lusts but to not to participate in the outward things which would cause such lust.

Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness. (1 Timothy 2:910, NAS) The well-ordering is not of dress and demeanor only, but of the inner life, uttering indeed and expressing itself in the outward conversation (Trench, Syn., Sec.xcii).

When is One Naked?

The Real QuestionWhen is One Naked?Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings. Then the Lord God called to the man, and said to him, Where are you? He said, I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself. (Genesis 3:710, NAS)

Then the Lord God called to the man, and said to him, Where are you? He said, I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself. (Genesis 3:710, NAS)

The Real QuestionNaked = ShameBecause you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and a glad heart, for the abundance of all things; therefore you shall serve your enemies whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in the lack of all things; and He will put an iron yoke on your neck until He has destroyed you.

Original I.S.B.E. article on Dress says chiton resembled the Roman tunic, corresponding most nearly to our long shirt, reaching below the knee always, and, in case it was designed for dress occasions, reaching almost to the ground (I.S.B.E., II:877). . . . the chiton of the peasantry was shorter like modern kamis of Syrian fellah which is to the knee.Now the man called his wifes name Eve, because she was the mother of all the living. The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them. (Genesis 3:2021, NAS)

When is One Clothed?

The tunic . . . was a shirt which was worn next to the skin. It was made of leather, hair-cloth, wool, linen, or in modern times, usually of . . . The simplest form of it was without sleeves and reached to the knees or sometimes to the ankles. . . . Women as well as men wore it [see Cant. 5:3, A.R.V.], although there was no doubt a difference in style and pattern in what was worn by the two (Fred H. Wight, Manners and Customs of Bible Lands, 91).Now the man called his wifes name Eve, because she was the mother of all the living. The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them. (Genesis 3:2021, NAS) The Real QuestionWhen is One Naked?You shall make for them linen breeches to cover their bare flesh; they shall reach from the loins even to the thighs. They shall be on Aaron and on his sons when they enter the tent of meeting, or when they approach the altar to minister in the holy place, so that they do not incur guilt and die. It shall be a statute forever to him and to his descendants after him. (Exodus 28:4243, NAS) The Real QuestionWhen is One Naked?Take the millstones and grind meal. Remove your veil, strip off the skirt, Uncover the leg, cross the rivers. Your nakedness will be uncovered, Your shame also will be exposed; I will take vengeance and will not spare a man.
