Isa. 3:16 Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion (and all the West of today) are
haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing
as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:
Isa. 3:17 Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the
crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts.
Isa. 3:18 In
that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments
about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon,
Isa. 3:19 The chains, and the bracelets,
and the mufflers,
The bonnets, and the ornaments
of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,
Isa. 3:21 The rings, and nose jewels,
Isa. 3:22 The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles,
and the wimples, and the crisping
Isa. 3:23 The glasses,
and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the veils.
3:24 And, (the consequences of the matriarchy that emerges from
these sexual negotiations is) it shall come to pass, that instead of
sweet smell (of suburban success) there shall be stink
(of the dead in Holocaust); and instead of a (seductive) girdle a (tear), rent,
(in the social order); and instead of well set hair, baldness; and
instead of a (beautiful and expensive) stomacher, a girding
of sackcloth (on those concentration encampments); and burning
(in the crematoriums of Nazi Germany) instead of beauty.
Isa. 3:25 Thy
men, (time and again), shall fall by the sword (to the
enemies at the gates of your rich society), and thy (highs sand)
mighty (economic and political leaders) in the war.
Isa. 3:26 And
(the matriarchy of these women), her gates shall lament (the
misfortune) and mourn; (the carnage of her children) and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.
