Isaiah 3:16

Washing Away Impurity

3:16 The Lord says,

“The women 1  of Zion are proud.

They walk with their heads high 2 

and flirt with their eyes.

They skip along 3 

and the jewelry on their ankles jingles. 4 

Isaiah 3:18


3:18 5 At that time 6  the sovereign master will remove their beautiful ankle jewelry, 7  neck ornaments, crescent shaped ornaments,

Isaiah 3:20

3:20 headdresses, ankle ornaments, sashes, sachets, 8  amulets,

1 tn Heb “daughters” (so KJV, NAB, NRSV).

2 tn Heb “with an outstretched neck.” They proudly hold their heads high so that others can see the jewelry around their necks.

3 tn Heb “walking and skipping, they walk.”

4 tn Heb “and with their feet they jingle.”

5 sn The translation assumes that the direct quotation ends with v. 17. The introductory formula “in that day” and the shift from a poetic to prosaic style indicate that a new speech unit begins in v. 18.

6 tn Or “in that day” (KJV).

7 tn Or “the beauty of [their] ankle jewelry.”

8 tn Heb “houses of breath.” HALOT 124 s.v. בַּיִת defines them as “scent-bottles”; cf. NAB, NRSV “perfume boxes.”
