What is Lawful for Aged Women to Teach?
Tit 2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
Please reference the video lesson on "What is sound doctrine" for full understanding of what the sound doctrine of the Church is. It is important to understand because an aged woman has to be in behavior that is becoming of holiness, which means she has to be an example of a believer, before she is qualified to teach other people's young children. An aged woman must indeed teach her own children and bring them up in the nurture of the doctrine of Alahayim, but there are requirements for a aged woman to be qualified to teach another's child anything according to the scriptures. Please reference the tab "how to raise righteous children" for exhortation on raising one's own children.
An aged woman is defined as an old woman in Titus 2:3, which is a woman of 60 years of age or older according to I Tim 5:9. One can also substantiate it by the reckoning of age groups in Lev 27:3-7. The women under the age of 60 are considered younger women and are instructed to marry, bear children, guide the house, and give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
Strong's Definition: Feminine of G4246; an oldwoman: - aged woman
1 Timothy 5:9
9 Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man, (Through this precept we get understanding of what age is considered old woman by the Apostles. Paul understood what an aged woman was considered through the law in Lev ch. 27.
All women under the age of 60 are commanded to marry, so that they do not give occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
1 Timothy 5:11-15
11 But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;
12 Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.
13 And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
14 I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
15 For some are already turned aside after Satan.
Now that we understand what is considered an "aged woman," we can identify the qualifications needed. This is for aged women, whether married or unmarried.
1. An unqualified aged woman is exhorted to teach her own children and continue growing to meet the qualifications of a true believer in sound doctrine. Until one fulfills those requirements, it is not lawful or expedient to teach anyone except one's own children lest one be found in hypocrisy.
Aged women teach their own children according to the following: (please visit the section on raising children as well.)
I Clem 21:7
.......Let our children be partakers of the instruction which is in Meshiyacha:
1 Clem. 21:8
let them learn how lowliness of mind prevaileth with Alahayim, what power chaste love hath with Alahayim, how the fear of Him is good and great and saveth all them that walk therein in a pure mind with holiness.
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the
On the other hand, there are qualifications that must be met in order to teach someone else's children. One has to be grounded and stable in the fruits of the Spirit before one is qualified to teach others outside of one's own children. Yache said one must get the beam out of one's own eye first, to see clearly to get the mote of of another's eye, which means we can't be hypocrites, not keeping the faith and trying to teach it to others.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in
thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in
thine own eye?
Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the
mote out of thy brother's eye. (It is hypocrisy to teach another things we do not do ourselves. This is the leaven of the pharisees. Yache said "beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy"[luke12:1]..And again
he says, " do not after their works,for they say, and do not."[Matt 23:3] He has admonished us not to
be like this because it is not according to the truth of the Gospel. We are unrighteous if we lay burdens
on others by instructing them to do something that we ourselves have not taken the time to do, that the
person may have an example.)
For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them
may be clean also. (We have to cleanse ourselves within by bearing all the fruits of righteousness first that
we may be clean.)
Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. (We
are no different if we don't achieve soundness in the faith of Yache and be grounded in the end goal of
Yache has given us the example in himself, he was a doer of righteousness which is what truly teaches
others how to be righteous. He set an example by his good works as his teaching tool.
Testament of Dan 6:9
And the things which ye have heard from your father, do ye also impart to your children [that the Saviour of the Gentiles may receive you; for he is true and long-suffering, meek and lowly, and 10 teacheth by his works the law of Alahayim].
For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his Adono; neither he that is sent greater
than he that sent him.
If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.
One was to walk worthy of the Gospel to be a disciple of Yache. We are commanded even as Paul exhorted Timothy to be an example of a believer.
1 Timothy 4:12
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in
charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
1 Timothy 1:5
Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith
I Tim 4:15-16
Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save
thyself, and them that hear thee.
Paul was an example himself because that is how we truly preach and teach the gospel.
And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of Alahayim.
• This calling is for all who call upon Yache and desire to be a part of his Church. Hebrew and Gentile.
I therefore, the prisoner of the Adono, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are
With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (We have to walk in the faith in order
to keep unity, or else there will be divisions due to hypocrisy.)
That ye might walk worthy of the Adono unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and
increasing in the knowledge of Alahayim; (We must walk as he walked by bearing fruit to be worthy of him, since he set the example for us.)
Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in
Yache's disciples walk in his word so that all men may know they are his disciples.
Then said Yache to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
With this understanding, we can be encouraged to get ourselves right before teaching other people's children. Now we can review the qualifications to teach other people's children.

These are all the qualities one must exemplify in one's self and teach to one's children first.
As the sun when it ariseth in the high heaven; so is the beauty of a good wife in the ordering of her house.(A wife professing holiness will be an example of holiness and teacher of these right and good things to her children.)
Women are to avoid getting involved in other men's household.
A foolish man's foot is soon in his neighbour's house: but a man of experience is ashamed of him.
A fool will peep in at the door into the house: but he that is well nurtured will stand without.
It is the rudeness of a man to hearken at the door: but a wise man will be grieved with the disgrace.
A man is a male that can bear children which makes him is of age for marriage, so women are not to associate with a man once he has reached manhood if he is not her husband, father, or near kin brothers, which are the son's of her father and mother.
Testament of Rueben
6:2 woman. And command the women likewise not to associate with men, that they also may be pure in
mind. (Women are not to associate with men either, so they are not to be connected, involved with, meet with, or having dealings with other men than their heads (father/husband) or near kinsmen, which are brothers by their father or mother. Cousins according to the bible are "other men" because they can marry the woman according to the law.)
A silent and loving woman is a gift of the Ahayah; and there is nothing so much worth as a mind well
A shamefaced and faithful woman is a double grace, and her continent mind cannot be valued.
(A righteous woman is shamefaced to speak to another man besides her husband, father, or near kin brothers.
Shamefacedness and faith are behaviors becoming of holiness according to I Tim 2:9-10)
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: (A wife ought to be indulged and connected to
her husband, as she was commanded that her desire shall be toward her husband. Gen 3:16)
While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear: (When another person sees the
righteousness of a woman who is desirous and in subjection to her own husband, her behavior will
convert the unbelievers.)
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 Alahayim of great price. (This behavior of holiness is of great
1 Clem. 21:6
Let us fear the Adọnọ Yache [Meshiyacha], 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 Meshiyacha: (Women
professing holiness, show it forth by holding their tongue and walking in love without dissimulation.)
1 Timothy 2:9-10
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness G127 and
sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
But (which becometh women professing holiness) with good works.
a sense of shame or honour, modesty, bashfulness, reverence, regard for others, respect.
Strong's Definition: Perhaps from G1 (as a negative particle) and G1492 (through the idea
of downcast eyes); bashfulness, that is, (towards men), modesty or (towards Alahayim) awe: - reverence,
Shamefaced: feeling or expressing shame or embarrassment.
Modesty: the quality or state of being unassuming in the estimation of one's abilities
Bashful: reluctant to draw attention to oneself; shy
A woman professing holiness will be bashful towards men and show her reverence of Alahayim
through her modesty and shamefacedness, by not holding conversations with men who are not her husband or father, or near-kin brother.
A dishonest woman contemneth shame: but an honest woman will reverence her husband. (Honesty is
shown in reference.)
A shameless woman shall be counted as a dog; but she that is shamefaced will fear Ahayah.
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. (Pride will lead a woman to be associated with other men after she has
been commanded "thy desire shall be to thy husband," but humility will make a woman wise to reverence her
husband with her desire toward him as commanded.)
Blessed is the man that hath a virtuous wife, for the number of his days shall be double.
A virtuous woman rejoiceth her husband, and he shall fulfil the years of his life in peace.
A good wife is a good portion, which shall be given in the portion of them that fear Ahayah.
Ahayah has given such righteous laws so that the we may stand in the faith as ambassadors and women may be true examples of the holiness of the Gospel. Aged men and aged women have to understand that being old in age is not the true sign of being honourable, but being full of wisdom in the law is the sign of honorable age. Hence Adono Yache is prompting the older people to be examples of the Gospel of Alahayim.
31 The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.
Wisdom of Solomon 4:8-9
 For honourable age is not that which standeth in length of time, nor that is measured by number of years.
 But wisdom is the gray hair unto men, and an unspotted life is old age.
An aged person must exemplify all of the fruits of the Spirit and characteristics of righteousness mentioned before being permitted to teach to anyone else, besides their children.
So with the understanding of what aged men and aged women must do and exemplify to be in behaviour that is becoming of holiness, we can look at what the aged women would be permitted to teach other people's children once they themselves have attained to being examples of believers:
But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to
much wine, teachers of good things;
Those are the qualification required to be permitted to teach other people's children. It is out of the love of Adono Yache that he set these rules for us, so that we do not walk in hypocrisy by not putting on the truth of his name and the 12 holy spirits. He doesn't want us to be blind leaders which lead others into a ditch.
Understanding what "teach" means: The word "teach G4994" in Titus 2:4 means "restore one to his senses; to hold one to his duty, to admonish, to exhort earnestly; to make of sound mind." So one can see the purpose of teaching is to bring a person back to a sensible thinking, which is to think according to the mind of Meshiyacha and be obedient unto their parents as He was unto his parents which is their duty.
Thayer Definition: restore one to his senses, to moderate, control, curb, disciple, to hold one to his duty, to admonish, to exhort earnestly
Strong's Definition: From G4998; to make of sound mind, that is, (figuratively) to discipline or correct: -teach to be sober.
When the opportunity arises, the righteous aged women will exhort the person back to a sound mind in meekness, not upbraiding, railing, pride, or rough speech, but in speech seasoned with salt that it may minister grace to the hearer.
Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
That they may teach G4994 the young G3501 women G3588 to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
Young menG3501 likewise exhort to be sober minded
Original: νέος νεώτερος
Transliteration: neos neōteros
Thayer Definition: recently born, young, youthful, new
Strong's Definition: A primary word, including the comparative (second form); " new", that is, (of persons) youthful, or (of things) fresh ; figuratively regenerate: - new, young
In the admonitions to Titus, "young men" by definition was referring "to recently born or youthful" males, which are young children, not men, whether young or old, that are of age for marriage or married. A man of marriageable age is a male that has reached the age that he can have children which is manhood. It is not permitted for an aged woman to teach married men or men of marriageable age because a woman ought not "to usurp authority over a man G435." [I Tim 2:12] Also women, married or unmarried, ought not to associate with other men,[Rueben 6:2] but rather be in subjection to their own husband, [Col 3:18] so she does not teach other men. Also men are taught not to sit or associate with another man's wife.[Sirach 9:9;Reuben 3:10] All things must be done decently and in order [I Cor 14:40 ] so there is a proper way to operate within the Body.
Testament of Rueben 6:2
6:2 woman. And command the women likewise not to associate with men, that they also may be pure in
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Adono.
Sit not at all with another man's wife, nor sit down with her in thine arms, and spend not thy money with her at the wine; lest thine heart incline unto her, and so through thy desire thou fall into destruction.
10 Pay no heed to the face of a woman, Nor associate with another man’s wife, Nor meddle with affairs of
associate: connect someone with someone else in one's mind; be involved with; allow oneself to be connected with or seen to be supportive of; meet or have dealings with someone regarded with disapproval.
Young children: Aged women are a support for the parents to help raise their children in an upright environment, so the first step to help promote a supportive environment for the children is to set an example of being a believer so that they see how righteousness has power with Alahayim by the aged women's demonstration of the Spirit [I Cor 2:4-5] which is the first method of teaching. Also the children will know through observation that the commands of their parents are right and good seeing as though the people around them are walking in the same ways of uprightness. Aged women may teach and exhort other people's young children if their parents aren't present as a support to their parents by telling them to be obedient to their masters and remember their adono's commands if the children are being disorderly in the absence of their parents. We do not discipline other people's children with the rod because it is their parents responsibility to correct and instruct their children with the rod when needed. We are supporters of one another by looking out for one another. If one sees a child doing something that is not right or dangerous, while their parents are there, one must tell one's husband, so that he may speak unto the child's father about the issue. If the aged woman is not married then she shall speak unto the Ministers of the Church whom she is subject unto just as Judith the righteous spake unto the rulers of the city when there was a fault, so that the ministers may talk to the man about the matters concerning his family. Of course if a child is in danger, use wisdom and help the child if the parent is not attentive to the endangerment of their child at the moment.
A daughter is the possession of her father until she be married to a man, so until the time she is given in marriage, she is under the power of her brothers, the sons of her father, that she may be guided and nurtured to learn reverence for her head and shamefacedness towards men, so that she may reverence her husband when she is of age to marry by her experience and nurturing from a youth through her reverential love toward her father and brethren. Hence aged women do not teach other men's daughters unless her parents are not there. The purpose is to ensure that the child is brought up in an environment where she is in subjection to her parents, while the other adults support the parents by notifying them of their child's behavior and encouraging their child to do the things that her parents have instructed her, so that she may know that obeying her parents is the right thing to do. The older women that are qualified, just exhort her to obey her parents if they see her going astray and her parents aren't around. That daughter is her father's maid [Gal 4:1;Sir3:7] and we are not to judge another man's servant. [Rom 14:4] Her parents and males of her household shall teach her and raise her up in the nurture of Yache while the aged women, are only to exhort or teach her to follow her parents if they see her going astray and her parents are not around. As servants of Alahayim we must show due respect unto our neighbors and not disrespect or diminish their authority given them as parents of the children.
Virgins: A virgin is a female that has reached the age of being able to bear children by having her issue of blood, which enables her to be eligible for marriage. Aged women are a support for the parents to help raise their children in an upright environment, so the first step one takes to support the parents in raising their virgins is to set an example of being a believing woman and wife for the virgins so that they see how they ought to be as a woman by the aged women's demonstration of the Spirit. An aged woman would teach and exhort virgins when their parents are not present to do the things pleasing unto Adono Yache and obey their adono, their father, if they are behaving contrary to sound doctrine. If one's sees a virgin going astray from the right path and her parents aren't present, exhort her unto righteousness even as Paul admonished Titus that the aged women should do T[Titus 2:4-5] and then report what transpired unto the your husband (or the Ministers of the Church if one is unmarried) so that he may tell the father of the virgin what transpired with his house. When the parents of the virgin are present, an aged woman is to act as a support for the parents by notifying them when their virgin has done something contrary to sound doctrine that they may nurture her concerning the matter. An aged woman ought not to usurp authority over the head of the house by speaking unto their virgin when their parents are present to do so themselves.
Married women: An aged woman may exhort another man's wife if her husband is not present and she sees the wife doing anything contrary to sound doctrine. The aged woman must teach her to be obedient unto her master by her example and words of righteousness to restore her to a sound mind in meekness. Then the aged woman must speak unto her husband of the matter so that he may relay to the woman's husband of the matters that transpired so that he may exhort his household. If a aged woman is not married, then she must report the matter unto the Ministers of the Church, to whom she is subject, that they may speak unto the man concerning what transpired with his household. On the other hand, if the wife's husbands is present, then older woman should speak unto her own husband about the matter that he may speak to the wife's husband about it. If the aged woman is not married, then she may speak unto to the ministers of the Church concerning the matter that they may speak unto the man concerning his wife. Remember a woman ought not to usurp authority over a man so there a proper measures that aged women must take to ensure all things are done in righteousness to show respect unto the head of the household and the Head of the Church, Adono Yache.
These are the things to exhort young female children, virgins , and wives to do that they may be nourished in words of righteousness
to be or become good wives:
That they may teach the young women G3501 to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of Alahayim
be not blasphemed. (All the things an older woman would say to a young woman are the same exhortations that her parents give her for her to know and understand they are teaching her the right things.)
Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again; (The main thing aged men and women ought to exhort young women to do is to be obedient to their parents as is pleasing [Col 3:20] and/or husbands, whom they are to serve as unto Adono Yache.[Eph 5:22])
He that feareth Ahayah, will honour his father, and will do service unto his parents, as to his masters.
Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of Alahayim our Saviour in all things.
Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, (women, young and adult, must understand to have respect for the leaders of the Church, and be ready to bear the fruits of good works.)
To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. (We are to exhort the them not to be slanderers, nor contentious, but gentle and meek in the fruits of the spirit.)
This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in Alahayim might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men
These are the things to teach and exhort young male children to do.
Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded. (Teach young ones to be self controlled, so they may guide their households when they come of age to be married. This also helps them prepare for being temperate and sensible guides from a youth if they have sisters who they have to guide to obey their father along with the aged women who set an example for them and exhort them unto righteousness when their parents are not present..)
Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not
answering again; (The children are to be exhorted to obey their masters, which are their parents.)
He that feareth Ahayah, will honour his father, and will do service unto his parents, as to his masters.
Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of Alahayim our Saviour in all things. (As we see, these are the things we ought to exhort young boys and girls to do so that the doctrine of Alahayim be glorified.)
Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good
work, (Young children must understand to have respect for the leaders of the Church, and be ready to bear the fruits of good works.)
To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. (Young children must also be exhorted to be examples of believers in all things and be at peace with all men through their gentleness.)
This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed
in Alahayim might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.
1 Clem. 21:6
Let us fear the Adọnọ Yache [Meshiyacha], 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:
Here we see an example of how parents lead their own children in righteousness by how Timothy's mother raised him up in faith and taught him the scriptures.
2 Timothy 1:5
When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois,
and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.
2 Timothy 3:15
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto
salvation through faith which is in Christ Yache.
In righteousness, a woman may teach to young male children as was shown in Titus 2:5, but a woman doesn’t speak to a man, that is not her husband, father, brothers from her parents, or her own sons. A woman does not speak to a man unless she is spoken to, neither is it convenient to have extended conversation. Greetings in peace and good manners suffice, if the man is not present. Any much further, gives opportunity for reproach, since a man ought not to associate with other men's wives. That man can speak with her husband/father to do things in proper order. We have Abraham for example of how women speak when they are spoken to and keep conversations as short as they need to be in hospitality. Both the bad and the good woman alike did not speak until they were spoken to as an example of how women are to operate. The good woman had good manners in nourishing her father-in law, the guest of her husband while he tarried, which is a righteous thing to do. She was very meek and hospitable, but did not make the conversation with him more than she was asked and her hospitality was given in reverence of her husband.
22 And in some time after, Abraham said to Sarah his wife, I will go and see my son Ishmael, for I have a desire to see him, for I have not seen him for a long time.
23. And Abraham rode upon one of his camels to the wilderness to seek his son Ishmael, for he heard that he was dwelling in a tent in the wilderness with all belonging to him.
24. And Abraham went to the wilderness, and he reached the tent of Ishmael about noon, and he asked after Ishmael, and he found the wife of Ishmael sitting in the tent with her children, and Ishmael her husband and his mother were not with them.
25. And Abraham asked the wife of Ishmael, saying, where has Ishmael gone? And she said, he has gone to the field to hunt, and Abraham was still mounted upon the camel, for he would not get off to the ground as he had sworn to his wife Sarah that he would not get off from the camel.
26. And Abraham said to Ishmael’s wife, my daughter give me a little water that I may drink, for I am fatigued from the journey. (Notice he is speaking to his daughter in law, which is righteous, he is not speaking to his neighbors wife. Also, he only spoke to her because her husband was not there. Sadly the unrighteous woman did not acknowledge her father in law.)
27.And Ishmael's wife answered and said to Abraham, we have neither water nor bread, and she continued sitting in the tent and did not notice Abraham, neither did she ask him who he was.
28. But she was beating her children in the tent, and she was cursing them, and she also cursed her husband Ishmael and reproached him, and Abraham heard the words of Ishmael's wife to her children, and he was very angry and displeased. (This is an admonition to the women that Abraham is not pleased with this type of behavior.)
29. And Abraham called to the woman to come out to him from the tent, and the woman came and stood opposite to Abraham, for Abraham was still mounted upon the camel.
30. And Abraham said to Ishmael's wife, when thy husband Ishmael returneth home say these words to him:
31. A very old man from the land of the Philistines came hither to seek thee, and thus was his appearance and figure; I did not ask him who he was, and seeing thou wast not here he spoke unto me and said when Ishmael thy husband returneth tell him thus did this man say, when thou comest home put away this nail of the tent which thou hast placed here, and place another nail in its stead. (This helps understand that he only spoke to her since her husband was not there because, in righteousness, men don't hold conversations with the other men's wives in the Faith, rather we speak to the man.)
32. And Abraham finished his instructions to the woman, and he turned and went off on the camel homeward.
33. And after that Ishmael come from the chase, he and his mother, and returned to the tent, and his wife spoke these words to him:
34. A very old man from the land of the Philistines came to seek thee, and thus was his appearance and figure; I did not ask him who he was, and seeing thou wast not at home he said to me, when they husband cometh home tell him, thus saith the old man, put away the nail of the tent which thou hast placed here and place another nail in its stead.
35. And Ishmael heard the words of his wife, and he knew that it was his father, and that his wife did not honor him. (She broke the law because she should have honored her father-in law.)
36. And Ishmael understood his father's words that he had spoken to his wife, and Ishmael hearkened to the voice of his father, and Ishmael cast off that woman and she went away.
37. And Ishmael afterward went to the land of Canaan, and he took another wife and he brought her to his tent to the place where he then dwelt.
38. And at the end of three years Abraham said, I will go again and see Ishmael my son, for I have not seen him for a long time.
39. And he rode upon his camel and went to the wilderness, and he reached the tent of Ishmael about noon.
40. And he asked after Ishmael, and his wife came out of the tent and she said, he is not here my adono, for he has gone to hunt in the fields, and to feed the camels, and the woman said to Abraham, turn in my adono into the tent and eat a morsel of bread, for thy soul must be wearied on account of the journey. (Through her general hospitality and shamefacedness towards men, she reverenced her father in law as adono unawares to who he was.)
41. And Abraham said to her, I will not stop for I am in haste to continue my journey, but give me a little water to drink, for I have thirst; and the woman hastened and ran into the tent and she brought out water and bread to Abraham, which she placed before him and she urged him to eat, and he ate and drank and his heart was comforted and he blessed his son Ishmael. (Hospitality is a good work in the spirit of Charity.)
42. And he finished his meal and he blessed Ahayah, and he said to Ishmael's wife, when Ishmael cometh home say these words to him:
43. A very old man from the land of the Philistines came hither and asked after thee, and thou wast not here, and I brought him out bread and water and he ate and drank and his heart was comforted.
44. And he spoke these words to me: When Ishmael thy husband cometh home, say unto him, the nail of the tent which thou hast is very good, do not put it away from the tent.
45a. And Abraham finished commanding the woman, and he rode off to his home to the land of the Philistines.
45b. When Ishmael came to his tent, his wife went forth to meet him with joy and a cheerful heart.
46. And she said to him: An old man came here from the land of the Philistines and thus was his appearance. And he asked after thee and thou wast not here, so I brought out bread and water, and he ate and drank and his heart was comforted.
47. And he spoke these words: When Ishmael thy husband cometh home, say to him, the nail of the tent which thou hast is very good, do not put it away from the tent.
48. And Ishmael knew it was his father, and that his wife had honored him, and Ahayah blessed Ishmael.
We have an exhortation for women to keep silent in the presence of men as well.
1 Clement 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 Meshiyacha.
A silent and loving woman is a gift of Ahayah; and there is nothing so much worth as a mind well instructed.
