Modesty in the Bible

   "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works."
~ I Timothy 2:9-10

"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."
~ I Corinthians 6:19-20

"Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price."
~ I Peter 3:3-4

"Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised."
~ Proverbs 31:30

"As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion."
~ Proverbs 11:22

"...For man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart."
~ I Samuel 16:7

"The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God."
~ Deuteronomy 22:5

"Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God."
~ I Corinthians 10:31

"Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be ubject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble."
~ I Peter 5:5

"Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment."
~ John 7:24

"But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."
~ Matthew 5:28

"Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart."
~ II Timothy 2:22

"Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty."
~ II Corinthians 6:17-18

 But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God. Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head, but every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven. For if a wife will not cover her head, then she should cut her hair short. But since it is disgraceful for a wife to cut off her hair or shave her head, let her cover her head. For a man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God, but woman is the glory of man. ...

~1 Corinthians 11:3-16
