[Concerning 1 Cor. 11:1-16 and Is. 4:5] "The NKJV translates it this way: 'For over all the glory there will be a covering.' This is what Paul is referring to -- a godly wife is to her husband what the Shekinah glory was to the tabernacle. Now this is how it all ties in with our foundational theology of marriage, and what we believe marriage actually is. The Bible teaches that a woman is the glory of her husband. She is his crown: 'A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband' (Prov. 12:4a). And a man does not walk down the street kicking his diadem in front of him in the hopes of making himself look better or more important" (For a Glory and a Covering, p. 37).
