Good KJV Bible Verses About Clothing

by Pamela Rose Williams · Print Print · Email Email

Throughout the years it is interesting to see how clothing and fashion changes. It is even sort of fun to see when an old style becomes new again. In the developed parts of the world, humans have worn clothing since God dressed them in animal skins way back in the garden:

“Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.” Genesis 3:21

Let’s take a look at some other KJV Bible verses about clothing.

1 Peter 3:3–4 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.
