Women's Head Coverings, Garments & Appearance

Women's Head Coverings

  • In the culture of the Believers, women wear head coverings when going about in the world. When at home, they don't have to wear head-coverings in the presence of their husband, immediate family that is not a male cousin, and their own children unless they are praying, prophesying, teaching scripture, learning scripture, discussing scripture, or reading scripture. On the other hand, when at home, in the presence of male cousins, non -relatives, or others children they would cover their heads as a token of obedience unto their Head and examples of believers in the modesty and shamefacedness of the faith of Christ Yache. 

  • According to the scriptures, any woman who is not ashamed, married or unmarried, to go about in the world uncovered,, there is a place prepared for them to be hung by their hair in hell according to Acts of Thomas 56

Acts of Thomas 56 

.".... Concerning these the man who accompanied me said the following: ‘the souls hung up by the tongue are slanderers and such as have spoken false and disgraceful words and are not ashamed. Those hung up by their hair are the shameless, who are not ashamed at all to go about with uncovered heads in the world...."

  • It is confirmed in the law that the women covered their heads when out in the world since they had to remove their head covering to imprecate the curse of jealousy.

Numbers 5:18

And the priest shall set the woman before AHAYAH, and uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse:

  • There is also another witness that the women wore head  coverings when out in the world in the songs of Solomon when the woman went out into the city to look for her man and was attacked by the watchmen  who took her veil from her.

Son 5:6  

I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer. 
Son 5:7  

The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil from me. ​

  • The head covering is a token of the humility of obedience a woman has in her life as was commanded in the law.

1 Corinthians 11:3

[3] But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Meshiyacha; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Meshiyacha is Alahayim.

1 Corinthians 14:34

Let your women keep silence 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. {the law was Gen 3:16}

Genesis 3:16

Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

1 Corinthians 11:1-6

[1] Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Meshiyacha.

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

[5] But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.

Thayer's definition:  4d) a sign of the husband’s authority over his wife 4d1) the veil with which propriety required a women to cover herself

 

  • The head covering is a token of the power of authority Alahayim has delegated unto the mai in a woman's life. In simplicity,  the woman's submission unto her husband's authority as her head is even as Christ is the head of the Church.

Eph 5:23  

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 

  • A good example is found when Rebekah veils herself as token of submission, as soon as she comes into the presence of her husband. 

Gen 24:65  

For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a vail, and covered herself. 

  • Rebecca exemplified how the wife ought to to be in subjection unto her husband as unto Yache as is fit for a believer. {Col 3:18}

Col 3:18  Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

The Examples of righteous women  

  • The righteousness of head coverings in the world are a similitude of the appearance and modesty of the righteous women in the invisible world. The Church, the Body of Christ, wears a head-covering as an example to all the daughters of the Church to wear one also in obedience to the Head, which is Christ, even as She herself is in obedience to Yache, her Husband. 

Hermas Vision 4 

(2{23}1)

Behold, there meeteth me a virgin arrayed as if she were going forth from the bridal-chamber all in white and with white sandals, veiled up to her forehead and her head-covering consisted of a turban, and her hair was white.

2{23}:2 I knew from the former visions that it was the church, and I became cheerful. She saluted me, saying, "Good morrow, my good man", and I saluted her in turn, "Lady, Good morrow.

  •  The righteous women show forth their faith by modestly adorning themselves in subjection even as the Church is unto Christ. 

Eph 5:24  Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 

  • The young women also show obedience unto their parents in respect of the commands of the Lord

Eph 6:1  

Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 
Eph 6:2  

Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) 

Sir 3:2  

For the Lord hath given the father honour over the children, and hath confirmed the authority of the mother over the sons. 

  •  .The 12 holy virgins also dress modestly in honor unto the Father as a similitude of how the daughters ought to adorn themselves in the world giving honour unto their father.  

Shepard of Hermas Parable 9

2[79]:3 And around the gate stood twelve virginsThe four then that stood at the corners seemed to me to be more glorious (than the rest); but the others likewise were glorious; and they stood at the four quarters of the gate, and virgins stood in pairs between them.

2[79]:4 And they were clothed in linen tunics and girt about in seemly fashion, having their right shoulders free, as if they intended to carry some burden. Thus were they prepared, for they were very cheerful and eager. (A tunic is a garment for the body, simple in style, that goes down to one's feet. They were girt about in seemly fashion and they had modest apparel without exposing their shoulders, nor physique wth tight clothing.)

Definition:

Seemly: conforming to accepted notions of propriety or good taste; decorous. appropriate; fitting.

2[79]:5 After I had seen these things, I marvelled in myself at the greatness and the glory of what I was seeing And again I was perplexed concerning the virgins, that delicate as they were they stood up like men, as if they intended to carry the whole heaven. (The righteousness of the seemly virgins left him in awe.)
15[92]:1 "Declare to me, Sir,
" say I, "the names of the virgins, and of the women that are clothed in the black garments." "Hear, " saith he, "the names of the more powerful virgins, those that are stationed at the corners.
15[92]:2
The first is Faith, and the second, Continence, and the third, Power, and the fourth, Long-suffering. But the others stationed between them have these names-Simplicity, Guilelessness, Purity, Cheerfulness, Truth, Understanding, Concord, Love. He that beareth these names and the name of the Son of Alahayim shall be able to enter into the kingdom of Alahayim.

  • The examples of modest apparel and head coverings by the righteous women in the invisible world is a good example of the way women in the faith ought to adorn themselves when going about in the world. The Apostles gav commandments for the women to  adorn themselves in modest apparel in profession of alahyimliness like the Church and the holy virgins.

1Ti 2:9  

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; 

1Ti 2:10  

But (which becometh women professing alahayimliness) with good works.

Why is going about uncovered a shame? 

  • Going about uncovered in the world is a similitude of the evil spirits that are at work in world. In the holy books when it comes to appearance, The female evil spirits are women with their heads uncovered, physique exposed, and shoulders bare for a testimony that going about in the world uncovered and dressed immodestly is not a profession of faith in Christ:

Hermas Parable 9

9{86}:5 So twelve women were called, most beautiful in form, clad in black, {girded about and having the shoulders bear} with their hair hanging loose. And these women, I thought had a savage look. And the shepherd ordered them to take up the stones which had been cast away from the building, and to carry them off to the same mountains from which also they had been brought. (These women looked savage due to their shoulders being exposed, physique visible through immodest clothing, and uncovered heads.)

Definition:

Savage: an uncultured or brutish person; severe, (of an animal) uncontrolled; a brutal or vicious

13[90]:7 These all," [saith he,] "received the name of the Son of Alahayim, and received likewise the power of these virgins. When then they received these spirits, they were strengthened, and were with the servants of Alahayim, and they had one spirit and one body [and one garment]; for they had the same mind, and they wrought righteousness.

13[90]:8 After a certain time then they were persuaded by the women whom thou sawest clad in black raiment, and having their shoulders bare and their hair loose, and beautiful in form. When they saw them they desired them, and they clothed themselves with their power, but they stripped off from themselves the power of the virgins.

  •  The twelve women with the savage look weren't merely savage in appearance, but were the very evil spirits that can lead the faithful away from the kingdom.

 

15[92]:3 Hear," saith he, "likewise the names of the women that wear the black garments. Of these also four are more powerful than the rest; the first is Unbelief; the second, Intemperance; the third, Disobedience; the fourth, Deceit; and their followers are called, Sadness, Wickedness, Wantonness, Irascibility, Falsehood, Folly, Slander, Hatred. The servant of Alahayim that beareth these names shall see the kingdom of Alahayim, but shall not enter into it."

  • In the physical world, there are women who are misguided from the simplicity of the faith to adorn themselves as these 12 evil women in their outward apparel and actions. 

Pro 7:9  

In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night: 
Pro 7:10  

And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart. 
Pro 7:11  

(She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house
Pro 7:12  

Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.) 
Pro 7:13  

So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him, 
Pro 7:14  

I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows. 
Pro 7:15  

Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee. ​​

  • As one can see, a woman's behavior and attire correlates to what spirit she is being influenced by. The 12 evil women entice believers unto spiritual fornication, while the women in the world who dress like they do are settting a stumblingblock for others through the spirit of fornication.  Reuben warned against fornication and how it leads to unseemly adorning to deceive the mind so that women don't adorned themselves in the world like these evil spirits to deceive the minds of others. 

Reuben 5:1-6

1 For evil are women, my children; and since they have no power or strength over man,

2 they use wiles by outward attractions that they might draw him to themselves. And whom they cannot bewitch by outward attractions, him they overcome by craft.

3 For moreover concerning them, the angel of Ahayah told me, and taught me that women are overcome by the spirit of fornication more than men, and in their heart they plot against men; and by means of their adornment they deceive first their minds, and by the glance of the eye instill the poison, and then through the accomplished act they take them captive.

4 For a women cannot force a man openly, but by a harlot's bearing she beguiles him.

5 Flee, therefore, fornication, my children and command your wives and your daughters, that they adorn not their heads and faces to deceive the mind; because every women who uses these wiles hath been reserved for eternal punishment.

6 For thus they allured the watchers who were before the flood; for as these continually beheld them, they lusted after them, and they conceived the act in their mind; for they changed themselves into the shape of men, and appeared to them when they were with their husbands.

  • The women are commanded to avoid adorning themselves to deceive men because such women are reserved for punishment. In the spiritual world, the other evil spirits that are awaiting their judgment are also  uncovered as a testimony of the unrighteousness of being uncovered when going about in the world. 

Testament of Solomon 

57. And I adored Ahayah Alahayim of Israel, and bade another demon present himself. And there came before me a spirit in woman's form, that had a head without any limbs, and her hair was dishevelled

58...What art thou?" And she said: "I am called among men Obizuth; ...

59. When I Solomon heard this, I marvelled at her appearance, for I beheld all her body to be in darkness. But her glance was altogether bright and greeny, and her hair was tossed wildly like a dragon's; and the whole of her limbs were invisible

 

  • When in humility, the daughters of Zion are clothed in modest apparel and ornaments, sccording to the curses of Isaiah 3, the daughters, would have their righteous garments and ornaments taken away, which included head coverings, due to their haughtiness. Hence we predominantly see the daughters of Zion not being ashamed to go about in the world uncovered currently.

Isaiah 3:16-23

[16] Moreover Ahayah saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:

[17] Therefore Ahayah will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Ahayah will discover their secret parts.

[18] In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon,

[19] The chains, and the  braclets, and the mufflers,

[20] The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,

[21] The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins,

[23]  The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails 

  • In conclusion, going about in the world being uncovered is a shame unto women due to the following reasons: 1) being uncovered in the world is a similitude of evil spirits; 2) Being uncovered when going about in the world is a sign the Lord is displeased at bthe haughtiness of his daughter who is called unto shamefacedness and sobriety in modest apparel; 3) being uncovered when praying or prophesying is a dishonour to her head. The Apostles, being teachers of good things according to the Spirit, taught for the women to adorn themselves in meek and quiet spirit within while adorning themselves in modest apparel with shamefacedness and sobriety. these commands help the women avoid the temptations of the spirit of fornication in heart and being a representation of evil spirits in the world to dishonour the Head of us all, Christ Yache.

1 Peter 3:1-6

[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;

[2] While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.

1 Timothy 2:9-10

[9] 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;

[10] But (which becometh women professing alahayimliness) with good works.

I Peter 3:3-6

[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;

[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.

[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 husband

 

  • These commands were to ensure the daughters would not end up in torments.  In the Acts of Thomas he went to India to preach and a certain women went to hell, being escorted by an angel showing her the torments to come upon sinners. 

Acts of Thomas 56 

And he brought me to another chasm, and as I looked into it I saw mud and worms spouting forth, and souls wallowing there; and I heard a great gnashing of teeth come from them. And that man said to me, ‘these are the souls of women who left their husbands and committed adultery with others, and they have been brought to this torment.’ And he showed me another chasm, and looking into it, I saw souls hung up, some by their tongue, some by their hair, some by their hands, others by their feet, head downward, and reeking with smoke and sulfur. Concerning these the man who accompanied me said the following: ‘the souls hung up by the tongue are slanderers and such as have spoken false and disgraceful words and are not ashamed. Those hung up by their hair are the shameless, who are not ashamed at all to go about with uncovered heads in the world. Those hung by their hands are they who took that which did not belong to them and have stolen, and who never gave anything to the poor, nor helped the afflicted; but they did so because they wished to get everything, and cared neither for law nor right. And these hung up by their feet are those who lightly and eagerly walked in wicked ways and disorderly paths, not visiting the sick nor escorting those who depart this life. On this account each soul receives what it has done.’

Lawful Jewelry

 

  •  Adono Yache gave ordinances that women are not to dress in ornaments of gold, pearls or costly array, which is flamboyant clothing, and He admonished in Reuben for the women not to adorn themselves to deceive the mind. 

1 Timothy 2:9-10

[9] 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;

[10]But (which becometh women professing holiness) with good works.

1 Peter 3:3-4

[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;

Testamet of Reuben 5:5

5 Flee, therefore, fornication, my children and command your wives and your daughters, that they adorn not their heads and faces to deceive the mind; because every women who uses these wiles hath been reserved for eternal punishment.

  • An example can be found Testament of Judah how a woman can be adorned with the intent to deceive in ornaments of gold and pearls. 

Testamnt of Judah 12:4-8

4...the spirits of jealousy and of fornication arrayed themselves against me, until I lay with Bathshua the Canaanite, and Tamar, who was espoused to my sons. For I said to my father-in-law: I will take counsel with my father, and so will I take thy daughter. And he was unwilling, but he showed me a boundless store of gold in his daughter’s behalf; for he was 5 a king. And he adorned her with gold and pearls, and caused her to pour out wine for us at the 6 feast with the beauty of women. And the wine turned aside my eyes, and pleasure blinded my 7 heart. And I became enamoured of and I lay with her, and transgressed the commandment of 8 AHAYAH and the commandment of my fathers, and I took her to wife.

  • Remember, Jewelry isn't required for a woman to adorn herself with the intent to deceive as was seen in Proverbs chapter seven wherein the woman had the attire of an harlot, but when it comes to ornaments, the Lord has commanded the women not to wear gold or pearls. The jewelry is lawful so long as it modest  and it is not of gold or pearls. The issue women have to be mindful of when wearing jewelry is the intents of their heart, which the Lord looks upon. Let us look at Isaiah chapter 3 to identify the ornaments the the Lord had given unto his daughters  to see how and what things can be worn in modesty.

Isaiah 3:18
[18]In that day the Adono will take away the bravery of their
tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their
cauls, and their round tires like the moon,
[19]The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers
[20]The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,
[21]The rings, and nose jewels

[22] The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins,

[23] the glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods and the vails.

 

  • The blue highlighted items are modest garments that are worn by women so long as they are not flamboyant or worn with the intent to deceive the mind of a man. The green highlighted items are accessories that women have that are not in transgression of the command so long as they are modestly worn in simplicity of heart. The red highlighted items are items that women can wear so long as they are modest and not gold or pearls.

 

  1. Cauls: hair net or hair band; it can be modest or it can be made of gold or silver, with jewels set at intervals in the band.

  2. Headbands: girdles, belts.

  3. The crisping pins: purses (2Kings 5:23), the small bags, or reticules, attached to the girdles

  4. Tablets: perfumes. Fragrances are lawful, but one must be mindful of the chemicals and ingredients that are in the perfumes, so as to not defile one's temple by putting unclean ingredients or chemicals upon one's flesh.

  5. Glasses: mirrors.

  6. (18) Tinkling ornaments.—These were anklets, i.e., rings of metal, with or without bells,• connecting the anklets of Isaiah 3:18, and so regulating the “mincing” or “tripping” motion of the wearer.

  7. The tablets.—Literally, houses of the soul—i.e., of the spirit or essence of a perfume. These seem
    to have been of the nature of scent-bottles, or the modern vinaigrettes. It is no transgression to put on perfumes or ointments in itself because The Church used ointments which her Husband Yache loved in Songs of Solomon 4:10 and Proverbs 27:9 shows ointments and perfumes rejoice the heart, yet one must be on guard against the spirit of fornication which are in the senses according to Reuben 3:3 so that one is not adorning one's self to allure a man by one's scent for the sake of fornication. Its a matter of one's heart to do things in simplicity and not to set a stumbling block before another like the idolatrous women who burn perfumes to allure men to sleep with them in Baruch 6:43 and the unrighteous woman in Proverbs 7:10-13,17 who perfumed her bed to allure a man to commit adultery with her. Also, be mindful to check the ingredients of the perfumes due to the harmful ingredients that may be found in them so that one may not be defiled unknowingly.  

  8. The earrings.—So long as they are modest and not of gold or pearls 
     

  9. (21) The rings, and nose jewels.—The first word points to the signet ring, worn both by men
    and women of wealth (Exodus 35:22; Numbers 31:50; Esther 3:12; Esther 8:8; Jeremiah 22:24);
    the latter to the ornaments worn pendent from the nostrils as by modern Arabian women (Genesis 24:22).

  10. Round tires like the moon.—The crescent ornaments which were hung on the necks of the came of the Midianites in the time of Gideon (Judges 8:21), and are still worn by Arabian women.

  11. (19) The chains.—ornament, pendant for the ears (especially of pearls):- chain, collar, as in Judges 8:26. they are usually of gold.

  12. (20) The bonnets —The English word is perhaps, too modern in its associations, and should be replaced by “diadems” (Exodus 39:28; Isaiah 61:10). tire, ornament, fancy headdress, diadems like a band of jewels on top of a turban.

  13. The ornaments of the legs.—These were chains

  14. (22) The changeable suits of apparel.—Better, state, or festal, dresses. 

  15. The mantles.—Better, tunics. The uppermost of the two garments, commonly richly embroidered.

  16. Wimples.—The obsolete English word describes accurately enough the large shawl, like a Scotch plaid, worn over the tunic, as in the “vail” worn by Ruth (Ruth 4:15).

  17. The crisping pins.—Better, purses (2 Kings 5:23), the smal l embroidered bags, or reticules, attached to the girdles. The girdle itself was used as a purse by men. This was a refinement of female luxury.

  18. (23) The glasses—i.e., the polished metal mirrors. Women can walk around with pocket mirrors seeing as though it is not unlawful.

  19. The fine linen—i.e., the chemise worn under the tunic next the skin. Chemise is a long, loose piece of undergarment or dress. Historically, a chemise was a simple garment worn next to the skin to protect clothing from sweat and body oils, the precursor to the modern shirts commonly worn in Western nations.

  20. The hoods--the turbans which completed the attire, and over which was thrown the “vail,” or gauze mantle.


Women cannot wear men's garments of any kind

Deuteronomy 22:5

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 Ahayah thy Alahayim. 

1Ti 2:9  

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; 

1Ti 2:10  

But (which becometh women professing alahayimliness) with good works.

  • It is unlawful for women to wear men's garments, so a woman can wear any clean garment, including women's pants, that is made for them and modest. There are men's long garments, which are evident by the masculine design, so women must be mindful not to wear that which pertains to a man. (1 sam 24:11,psa 133:2, Ruth 3:9). We see in the scriptures that women wore mantles (overtunic, cloak, robe of state), hoods, veils, mufflers (flowing veil/mantilla), wimples (shawls) in Isaiah 3:19-22 which are all flowing garments that do not reveal the physique of a woman, so women's pants need to be unrevealing if they are going to be worn as an outward garment. Tights, leggings, tight jeans, and/or spandex should be worn as undergarments to maintain a modest appearance of apparel.

Females of the house of Israel must refrain from strange apparel, which is any clothing contrary to the laws Ahayah commanded,  Please visit the tab on "Clean vs Unclean Garments" for understanding of "Strange apparel" and what garments and appearance are righteous for the servants of Alahayim

 

Laws on Tattoos 

Tattoos are against the law, as it is written "Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks H7085 upon you." Lev 19:28.  

Definition:

H7085

קעקע

BDB Definition: incision, imprintment, tattoo, mark.

Strong's Definition: From the same as 6970; an incision or gash:— + mark.

If one already has tattoos, come unto Alahayim as you are, yet sin no more. For your baptism into Yache was for the remission of former sins, {Rom 3:25} so there is no need to turn to a carnal element of seeking to be justified in the flesh by removing the tattoos when you have already been justified in the Spirit by the blood of the Son of Alahayim to purge the conscience from dead works. 

Concerning writing on one's self with ink or pencils, be admonition that the body is the temple of Alahayim and it is Holy, and one has to be mindful of the harmful chemicals upon the flesh, so it is not expedient to write upon one's self, seeing as though it will defile the temple of Alahayim and be a transgression of the law. For one who defiles the Temple of Alahayim, him shall Alahayim destroy. 

1 Corinthians 3:17

17  If any man defile the temple of Holy, him shall Alahayim destroy; for the temple of Alahayim is holy, which temple ye are.
