The LORD says, "The women of Zion1 are haughty, walking along with outstretched necks,2 flirting with their eyes, tripping along with mincing steps, with ornaments jingling on their ankles.
Therefore the Lord will bring sores on the heads of the women of Zion; the LORD will make their scalps bald.3"
In that day4 the Lord will snatch away their finery: the bangles and headbands and crescent necklaces,519
the earrings and bracelets6 and veils,720
the headdresses8 and ankle chains and sashes, the perfume bottles and charms,
the signet rings and nose rings,922
the fine robes and the capes and cloaks,10 the purses
and mirrors, and the linen garments11 and tiaras12 and shawls.
Instead of fragrance13 there will be a stench;14 instead of a sash,15 a rope; instead of well-dressed hair, baldness;16 instead of fine clothing, sackcloth;17 instead of beauty,18 branding.1925
Your men will fall by the sword,20 your warriors in battle.2126
The gates22 of Zion will lament and mourn;23 destitute,24 she will sit on the ground.25
