Instructions For Women

8 It is my desire, then, that in every place men may give themselves to prayer, lifting up holy hands, without wrath or argument. 9 And that women may be dressed in simple clothing, with a quiet and serious air; not with twisted hair and gold or jewels or robes of great price; 10 But clothed with good works, as is right for women who are living in the fear of God.
