Ornaments of shame
Isa 3:16 Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:
The LORD has two things he dislikes among the women of this time. He will judge their arrogance and pride; also their immoral seductive behavior.
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.
Babylon would invade Jerusalem, there would be great poverty and sickness. The women would be molested and defiled by the invaders; they would be shamed.
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,
In that day, they would no longer be so carried away with jewelry and ornaments, as described here.
Isa 3:19 The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,
Isa 3:20 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 pins,
Isa 3:23 The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the veils.
All this was vanity, pride and of an unclean heart. The Bible says we are to have more concern for the heart, and our relationship to God.
Isa 3:24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty.
These would be terrible times, but we should also take heed and draw close to God, putting away vain pride and lustful behavior.This applies to men too.
Prov 1:8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
Prov 1:9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
Prov 1:10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
Prov 25:11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Prov 25:12 As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.
1 Pet 3:1 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
1 Pet 3:2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
1 Pet 3:3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
1 Pet 3:4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
1 Pet 3:5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
1 Tim 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.
1 Tim 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
1 Tim 2:10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
Isa 3:25 Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war.
Isa 3:26 And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.
They would be taken as slaves, their ways would be changed. For sure the devil will not treat you well. Our hope is in the Lord, not empty vanity.
Psa 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
Psa 18:3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
Job 22:29 When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.
