    Smile Cleaniness is indeed close to godliness.

    Cleaniness is indeed close to godliness.

    Does the above amount to the following? If not, what does it mean to you? Thanks.

    Hygiene is in truth close to obeying and respecting God.

    Re: Cleaniness is indeed close to godliness.

    It is an old Hebrew saying.

    It is saying that To be clean in your person is a great virtue, only exceeded by your reverence to God.

    Thanks, Anglika.
    I like your version, but I'm not very sure of its meaning 100%. Does it amount to "To be clean personally is a great virtue, which is only surpassed by our respect to God?"
