Modern translation of Hebrew term for the luxuriousness of the jewelry and clothing worn by the society women of Jerusalem (Isaiah 3:18 ). KJV reads “bravery”; NAS, “beauty.” The Hebrew word describes the beauty or glory of Aaron's priestly clothes (Exodus 28:2 ), the glory of God's house (Isaiah 60:7 ), battle field honor (Judges 4:9 ), and the pompous (NAS) pride (NIV) of the Assyrian king (Isaiah 10:12 ). Thus finery in itself is not bad, but prideful human attitudes concerning it soon became sinful.
