Previous Verse < Exodus 20 > Next Verse

Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not uncovered thereon. (ASV)


One wonders why exposing oneself to an altar is supposed to be such a terrible calamity.

This may be why priests are supposed to wear special underwear (Exodus 28:42-43) inside holy places.


Try exposing yourself in a modern church and see what happens. Nothing really errant about this.
