braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses;
but let it be the hidden person of the heart,
with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit,

who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves,

just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord,
and you have become her children if you do what is right
without being frightened by any fear.
