What does the bible say about looking at a woman

Yes, I can say that the Lord is not against admiring or looking at a woman, that’s admiring the beauty of humanity but He wants to look beyond the physical appearance just like it is said in the bible verse below

1 Peter 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 God of great price.

1 Peter 3:4

This means we should guide our hearts zealously inorder not to allow flesh to take over and make us lust. The Lord warns us in the book of Proverbs 31:30.

God loves beautiful things because it works are magnificent. A woman and her beauty is part of God’s creation and at such the Lord wants us to be marvelled by the works of His hand including ourselves (Psalms 139:14), just like Solomon who praised the beauty of God’s creation (Songs of Solomon 6:4-9 and 7:1-9)

Thou art beautiful, O my love, as Tirzah, comely as Jerusalem, terrible as an army with banners. Turn away thine eyes from me, for they have overcome me: thy hair is as a flock of goats that appear from Gilead. Thy teeth are as a flock of sheep which go up from the washing, whereof every one beareth twins, and there is not one barren among them

How should a woman dress according to the bible

Proverbs 31:30

Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

Proverbs 31:30

This tells us that a woman’s fear of God is more valuable than her beauty.

Proverbs 31:25 – Strength and honor are her clothing

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.

Proverbs 31:25

 

meaning a woman should be cloth with strength and dignity.

1 Timothy 2:9-10

In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array. But which becometh women professing godliness with good works.

1 Timothy 2:9-10

Here, two things are stated clearly:

1. God calls women to dress modestly in their appearance and not to dress excessively drawing attention to themselves or their Beauty.

2. A Godly woman should focus on making herself attractive by the good things she does and not by the things she wears.

1 Peter 3:3-5

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.

For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands.” This is about being focus from within (focus on the heart) not outward beauty or outer appearance. This will make a woman more attractive because true beauty comes from knowing who she is in Christ.

1 Peter 3:3-5

What does the bible say about physical beauty

Beauty is good, is a wonderful work of God and is a gift from God. But the most important thing about beauty is really about a godly inward character.

We all know that physical beauty can be destroy in a process of time (that’s by aging), by situations of life, circumstances surrounding a person’s life, environment, ones finances (that’s not having enough money to take care of ourselves), stress of life and sicknesses but inward beauty can not be destroy by all the above mentioned reasons.

What is truly beautiful should be humble, meek and above all fears the Lord. Fearing the Lord means working according to God’s intent and purpose and this applies to both men and women.

Psalms 103:15-16

As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone, and the place thereof shall know it no more.

Psalms 103:15-16

This means as a grass and flowers it will sure wither away someday but what will not be destroy is God’s deposit in man.

 Job 19:26

says that every Christian should have hope in Christ.

What does the bible say about private parts

Yes, we know and we were taught by our mothers right from our childhood that being naked before anyone is a sin and also shameful. And I mean everyone including our siblings.

And when we grew up the scripture made us to understand that being naked in the presence of others is a sin and also shameful unless ones wife, husband or medical personnel.

Revelation 16:15 stated clearly that being naked is shameful – Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

Romans 1:27 says “And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another;, men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.” this means dishonor or to behave improperly.

Other scriptures:- 2 Chronicles 28:15, Job 22:6, Isaiah 58:7, Ezekiel 16:22, 39, Hosea 2:3 also confirms that it is shameful to allow other people to see our naked bodies, for us to be naked and that is why we clothes ourselves.

It is also shameful and sin for unmarried people to see others who are not married to them  naked.
