B. INWARD ADORNMENT(:3-4)

:3—“Do not let your adornment be merely outward--arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel--“

:4—“rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle & quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.”

********************************************

Explanation:

:3—“Do not let your adornment be merely outward--arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel--“

“Do not let” is a command to the Christian wife that it is within her power, to either allow flesh to rule, or not to allow flesh to overrule the Spirit of God.

“Do Not Let...Be/Let It Not Be”—estw ouc =‘LET IT NOT BE’——estw—Present -X- Imperative 3rd Sing.—1) third person singular imperative of “to be”. Strong—second person singular present imperative of eimi[I exist/am]; Be thou; also estwsan; third person of the same; Let them be.

“Adornment/Adorning”—kosmov—Noun Sing. Masc.—1) An apt & harmonious arrangement or constitution, order, government; 2) Ornament, decoration, adornment, i.e. The arrangement of the stars, 'the heavenly hosts', as the ornament of the heavens. 1Pe 3:3; 3) The world, the universe; 4) The circle of the earth, the earth; 5) The inhabitants of the earth, men, the human family; 6) The ungodly multitude; the whole mass of men alienated from God, & therefore hostile to the cause of Christ; 7) World affairs, the aggregate of things earthly—7a) The whole circle of earthly goods, endowments riches, advantages, pleasures, etc, which although hollow & frail & fleeting, stir desire, seduce from God & are obstacles to the cause of Christ; 8) Any aggregate or general collection of particulars of any sort. Aiwn is usually better expressed by age, it is the world at a given time, a particular period in the world's history. Kosmov has very frequently an unfavorable meaning, denoting the inhabitants of the world, mankind in general, as opposed to God. Strong—Orderly arrangement, i.e. Decoration; by implication--The world(in a wide or narrow sense, including its inhabitants, literally or figuratively [morally]). RWP—“The whole cosmos of men, including Gentiles, the whole human race.” Kosmov has here its old meaning of ornament(cf. our cosmetics).
