Bible Verses List

There are many Bible Verses you will find for Pro-Nudity (Nudity which is biblically good) and anti-clothed (where being clothed is wrong). There are also further examples of passages which include references of public or semipublic nudity that are either not condemned by God, or are facilitated and commanded by him.

Here is a list of verses. In the menu, these are separated by Old and New testaments with the Bible text. There are also verse challenges too.

Genesis 2:25 The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.
Genesis 3:11 Adam and Eve first wore fig leaves to cover their nakedness, God asks them (perhaps rhetorically), "Who told you that you are naked?" The implication, as Christian naturists see it, is that the devil (in the form of a serpent) told them so. Furthermore, not only is God displeased that the forbidden fruit was eaten and sin had occurred, but also that they were now attempting to cover it up with clothing. No longer nude by their own accord, God made them garments from animal skins, possibly implying that sin requires a sacrifice.
Genesis 9:22-23 Whatever Noah's "nakedness" was, it wasn't just about sleeping in the nude in his very own tent, and then being seen by his same-gender relatives.
Genesis 38:15 Does the Bible Teach Not to Be Nude in Tents?
Exodus 22:26-27 The Law of Moses - It's OK to be Nude In Public All Day, But Sleep Warm
Exodus 28:42

If God was really anti-nudity, why didn't he command all the Israelites to wear breeches over their naked flesh?  In fact there is no such commandment in the Bible, anywhere!

Leviticus 18:6 Here the Lord is specifying which relatives counted as incestuous sex when people had sex.  This is not about family skinny-dipping.
