Satur-deja Vu

The armor of God (Ephesians 6) has no pants. That’s because men preparing for hard labor or going into battle were commanded to gird up their loins:

The Proverbs 31 woman girds her loins in strength but it’s usually associated with men. Most modern translations render the Hebrew “she girds her loins with strength” as she dresses herself or she wraps herself in strength but I’ve linked several translations side by side here. God tells Job to gird up his loins like a man in Job 38:3 but there again you have to go to the KJV for that translation, some modern translation give it in the footnotes. 1 Peter 1:13 is rendered “gird up the loins of your mind” in the King James but simply “prepare your minds for action” in the ESV. Girding one’s loins is an old concept because we’re dealing with another culture(s) millenia ago on the other side of the world. Men didn’t wear pants and thus the full armor of God has no pants.

You will see tweets from The Church Curmudgeon get copied and pasted on Facebook and sometimes appear in Happy Monday or other places around The Master’s Table. “Go to bed you sinners” is a famous line but there is also a lot of thought put into some of the hymn parodies. The CrossPolitic podcast screenshotted above is still available, click here for the one hour episode. He comes on right after the 20 minute mark.
