Jul 27 '15 at 16:59 comment added Lee Woofenden "Uncovering the nakedness" of someone is an idiom that occurs mostly in Leviticus 18 and 20, where it is a euphemism for having sexual relations with a woman, and by extension, dishonoring the husband or family relations of that woman. It occurs a few times in the Prophets, where it refers to the humiliation of a people or nation. It does not mean merely being naked.

Mar 31 '15 at 20:42 comment added ShemSeger @MattGutting I acknowledge that "nakedness" can mean a great many things in the bible, which makes it difficult to answer questions biblically about nudity specifically.
Mar 31 '15 at 20:36 comment added Matt Gutting @ShemSeger Certainly there are; but I don't think that being naked automatically gives someone more of an opportunity to look on another with lust than being clothed does. And not uncovering/looking on someone's nakedness might mean no more than "don't embarrass someone on purpose."
Mar 31 '15 at 20:35 comment added user2864740 This 'hope' assumes cultural upbringing where breasts cannot be looked at without 'causing lust'. The question is about such cultures were such is not a view held about breasts. (If every woman were to cover here wrists and expose her breasts, it would the wrists that were objects of desire..)
Mar 31 '15 at 20:33 comment added ShemSeger @MattGutting That's why I said, "I hope". Because I don't think it's explicitly stated that it is a commandment to not be naked in public, although I imagine it falls under the "Thou Shalt not commit adultery", and "Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery in his heart" categories. There are however countless scriptures about not uncovering someone else's nakedness, or looking upon someone else's nakedness.
Mar 31 '15 at 20:26 comment added Matt Gutting I'm not sure we can all agree that it's a commandment to not walk around naked. Where do you see that?
