Is it Lawful for Women of any age to Speak in the Church?

According to the ordinances of Adọnọ Yache for the washing of the Church by the word unto sanctification, he has ordained it to be unlawful for any woman to speak in the Church. Yache in his sincere love for his Body, has set righteous laws that his congregation may attain unto righteousness. Adọnọ Yache gave Paul the Gospel and the ordinances by revelation to deliver to the churches, so that we ought to know how to behave ourselves in the Church, the Pillar and Ground of Truth. The ordinances are for the well being and protection of the members of the body that there be no schisms in the Church, but rather peace in the Love of the Holy Spirit. The disciples continued to teach the same ordinances handed down from Yache through Paul as well.   

 Gal 1:1  

Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Yache Christ, and Alahayim the Father, who raised him from the dead;) 

Gal 1:11  

But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 
Gal 1:12  

For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Yache Christ. 

1Co 11:1  

Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. 
1Co 11:2  

Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. 

1Co 14:34  Let your women keep silence G4601 in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.





From G4602; to keep silent (transitive or intransitive): - keep close (secret, silence), hold peace.

(This law is not new, it originates from Genesis 3:16)


  • The righteous women in the testimonies would not talk out loud, but prayed in their heart of old time. We have an example of this in Elkanah's wife named Hannah, who though she was outside of the Temple, she spoke within herself, so that her voice could not be heard. Sarah also did not let her voice be heard when her husband was speaking with the men in Genesis 18, but rather spake within herself out of reverence for her husband. These are examples of women who show forth the moderation of their tongue by their silence in the Church and among men. 

1Sa 1:9  

So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the Ahayah. (Notice they were outside of the temple, so it was lawful for Hannah to speak when he spoke to her first. She was a righteous woman because she even spoke within her heart that she be not a reproach unto her husband, as a gadder abroad Sir 26:8)
1Sa 1:10  

And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the Ahayah, and wept sore. 
1Sa 1:11  

And she vowed a vow, and said, O Ahayah of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the Ahayah all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head. 
1Sa 1:12  

And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the Ahayah, that Eli marked her mouth. (She was not speaking out loud, but within herself. This is a great example for sisters to understand, praying without ceasing doesn't have to be out loud, and it is lawful to speak within oneself, so long as one is silent.)
1Sa 1:13  

Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. 
1Sa 1:14  

And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee. 
1Sa 1:15  

And Hannah answered and said, No, my adono, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the Ahayah. (She did not transgress by responding because she was not in the temple, and he spake to her first, so it was seemly to respond cordially.)
1Sa 1:16  

Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto. 
1Sa 1:17  

Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the Alahayim of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him. (She was blessed of the priest for her righteous behavior.)
1Sa 1:18  

And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad. 

  • Now we have understanding that women were operating in the righteousness of silence of old. Here is an example of Sarah as well.

Genesis 18:1-12

1  And Ahayah appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;

2  And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,

3  And said, My Adono, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

4  Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:

5  And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.

6  And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth.

7  And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetch a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.

8  And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.

9  And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. (notice Sarah was not sitting among the men, but in the tent silently.)

10  And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.

11  Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.

12  Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my adono being old also? (Sarah laughed and spake within herself that her voice should not be heard among the men out of reverence for her husband.)

Sir 26:14

A silent and loving woman is a gift of AHAYAH, and there is nothing so much worth, as a mind well instructed
. Sir 26:15

A shamefaced and faithfull woman is a double grace, and her continent mind cannot be valued.

1 Clem. 21:1

Look ye, brethren, lest His benefits, which are many, turn unto judgment to all of us, if we walk not worthily of Him, and do those things which are good and well pleasing in His sight with concord.

1 Clem. 21:6

Let us fear the Adono Yache [Christ], whose blood was given for us. Let
us reverence our rulers; let us honor our elders;
let us instruct our young men in the
lesson of the fear of Alahayim. Let us guide our women toward that which is good:

1 Clem. 21:7

let them show forth their lovely disposition of purity; let them prove
their sincere affection of gentleness; let them make manifest the moderation of their
tongue through their silence; let them show their love, not in factious preferences
but without partiality towards all them that fear Alahayim, in holiness.
Let our children be
partakers of the instruction which is in Christ:

  • So one can understand a woman being of a meek and quiet spirit has been righteous from the ancient times. On the contrary, when the people are in unrighteousness their women speak boldly in the presence of others.

Sir 22:5  

She that is bold dishonoureth both her father and her husband, but they both shall despise her.

Sir 25:20  

As the climbing up a sandy way is to the feet of the aged, so is a wife full of words to a quiet man. 

Jeremiah 44:9-10

9  Have ye forgotten the wickedness of your fathers, and the wickedness of the kings of Judah, and the wickedness of their wives, and your own wickedness, and the wickedness of your wives, which they have committed in the land of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem?

10  They are not humbled even unto this day, neither have they feared, nor walked in my law, nor in my statutes, that I set before you and before your fathers.

Jeremiah 44:15-20

15  Then all the men which knew that their wives had burned incense unto other alahayims, and all the women that stood by, a great multitude, even all the people that dwelt in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying, (The unbelieving women were bold to speak in the presence of their husbands and all the people. The unbelieving men did not entreat them to desist from doing so either.)

16  As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of Ahayah, we will not hearken unto thee.

17  But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.

18  But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.

19  And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men? (This response in particular came from those women who even justified their sins in their pride.)

20  Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men, and to the women, and to all the people which had given him that answer, saying,

Jeremiah 44:25

25  Thus saith Ahayah of hosts, the Alahayim of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: ye will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows.

  • Now we see the dichotomy of righteous women as oppose to idolatrous women to better understand how righteous the law is for women to keep silence in the Church. 

Ti 2:11  

Let the woman learn in silenceG2271 with all subjection
1Ti 2:12  

But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. G2271





Feminine of G2272; (as noun) stillness, that is, desistance from bustle or language: - quietness, silence.

1Co 14:35 

 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak G2980 in the church. 




laleō A prolonged form of an otherwise obsolete verb; to talk, that is, utter words: - preach, say, speak (after), talk, tell, utter. Compare G3004.

1Ti 2:12  

But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence

1Ti 2:13  

For Adam was first formed, then Chiuwah.

1Ti 2:14  

And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. (Please reference the "admonition to the women" to understand the attack on the woman by the devil to speak through her to deceive her husband, hence women are commanded to be in silence for their protection and in aid to their husband.)

1Ti 2:15  

Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety. (Adọnọ Yache gave these commandments that our dear women may be protected from the wiles of the enemy. Women are exhorted to continue in faith and charity, which is the end of goal of the commandment {I Tim 1:5}, so keeping the commandment is a part of a woman's salvation along with sobriety. Women are exhorted to have self control and guard their hearts and minds against emotions.)

  • Paul exhorted the church to be mindful that these commandments came from Adono, and if anyone thought otherwise, we were to let them be, and not to congregate with them, in hopes that they would repent and do what Adono said.

1Co 14:36  

What? came the word of Alahayim out from you? or came it unto you only? 
1Co 14:37  

If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Adono
1Co 14:38  

But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. (If one does not understand these are Adono's commands we are to let him be, but we cannot congregate with him in his contentions.)

1Co 11:16  But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom,G4914 neither the chruches of Alahayim




sunētheia From a compound of G4862 and G2239; mutual habituation, that is, usage: - custom.

Thayers Definition: 1) intercourse (with one), intimacy, custom, a being used to, accustomed

2Th 3:14  

And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company G4874 with him, that he may be ashamed. 



Strong's Definition: from 4862 and a compound of 303 and 3396; to mix up together, i.e. (figurative) associate with:— (have, keep) company (with).

Thayer's Definition: to mix up together, to keep company with, be intimate with one.
2Th 3:15  

Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother. (So one can see that the separation from the unbeliever is for the sake of their repentance to believe and obey the truth, because all the law is given for us to operate in love. )

  •  A talkative woman is unfavorable in the Testimonies, thus Ahayah set righteous ordinances to keep his daughters from reproach. 

Sir 25:25

Give the water no passage: neither a wicked woman liberty to gad abroad.
Sir 25:20

As the climbing up a sandy way is to the feet of the aged, so is a wife full of words to a quiet man.

Sir 26:8

A drunken woman and a gadder abroad, causeth great anger, and she will not cover her own shame.
Pro 9:13

A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing. 
Pro 7:11

She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
Sir 26:11

Watch over an impudent eye: and marvel not, if she trespass against thee.
Sir 26:12

She will open her mouth as a thirsty traveler, when he hath found a fountain: and drink of every water near her: by every hedge will she sit down, and open her quiver against every arrow.

Sir 26:26

A woman that honoureth her husband, shall be judged wise of all: but she that dishonoureth him in her pride, shall be counted unholy of all.


Shepard of Hermas vision II
2[6]:2 "Thy seed, Hermas, have sinned against Alahayim, and have blasphemed AHAYAH, and have betrayed their parents through great wickedness, yea, they have got the name of betrayers of parents, and yet they did not profit by their betrayal; and they still further added to their sins wanton deeds and reckless wickedness; and so the measure of their transgressions was filled up.
2[6]:3 But make these words known to all thy children,
and to thy wife who shall be as thy sister; for she too refraineth not from using her tongue, wherewith she doeth evil. But, when she hears these words, she will refrain, and will find mercy.
2[6]:4 After that thou hast made known unto them all these words, which the Master commanded me that they should be revealed unto thee, then all their sins which they sinned aforetime are forgiven to them; yea, and to all the saints that have sinned unto this day, if they repent with their whole heart, and remove double-mindedness from their heart.

  • Women are exhorted unto righteousness with the garments of a meek and quite spirit. 

1Pe 3:1  

Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; 
1Pe 3:2  

While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. 
1Pe 3:3  

Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; 
1Pe 3:4  

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 Alahayim of great price. 
1Pe 3:5  

For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in Alahayim, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: 

  • Sarah was that example of operating in righteousness when Abraham had visitors, she sat in the tent silently, and even when she did speak she did not speak out loud, but spoke within herself, so that her voice may not be heard among the people out of reverence for her husband. 

  • A woman may not let her voice be heard in the Church, she may speak within her heart, but it is unlawful for her to speak at all in the Church. When there is group prayer, it is lawful for her to agree with the prayer in her heart, but not to let her voice be heard.
