For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.
Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you.
For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
For you have possessed my reins: you have covered me in my mother's womb.
I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are your works; and that my soul knows right well.
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with reverence and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
But (which becomes women professing godliness) with good works.
The grass withers, the flower fades: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what all of you shall eat, or what all of you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what all of you shall put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than raiment?
But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of braiding 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, (o. pneuma) which is in the sight of God of great price.
You are all fair, my love; there is no spot in you.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
