I was naked, and you clothed me.

 

When all the people asked John ‘What must we do then?’ he answered ‘If anyone has two tunics, he must share with the man who has none’ [Luke 3 10-11]

 

Awake, awake! Clothe yourself in strength, Zion. Put on your richest clothes, Jerusalem, holy city. (Isaiah 52:1)

 

If you clothe the man you see to be naked, Your light will rise in the darkness And your shadows become like noon. (Isaiah 58: 7-10)

 

You are God’s chosen race, his saints, he loves you; and you should be clothed in sincere compassion, in kindness and humility, gentleness and patience. Over all these clothes, to keep them together and complete them, put on love. ( Collossians 3: 12, 14)
