1 Timothy 2:10 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Professing (ἐπαγγελλομέναις)

In the sense of professing only in the Pastorals. In Titus 1:2, and everywhere else in N.T. it means promise. See Acts 7:5; Romans 4:21; Galatians 3:19, etc.

Godliness (θεοσεβείαν)

N.T.o. Several times in lxx. The adjective θεοσεβής worshipping God, John 9:31. It is equals εὐσέβεια. See 1 Timothy 2:2. Const. by good works with professing godliness: omit the parenthesis which - godliness; take which (ὅ) as equals with that which (ἐν τούτῳ ὅ) and construe it with adorn. The whole will then read: "That women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefastness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array, but (adorn themselves) with that which becometh women professing godliness through good works."
