SHARE THE GOSPEL
1 Corinthians 11:15
If a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for hair is given her for a covering.
1 Corinthians 11:5
But every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven.
The Lord will make bald the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and Jehovah will lay bare their secret parts.
Clarke’s Commentary on Isaiah 3:17:
It was the barbarous custom of the conquerors of those times to strip their captives naked, and to make them travel in that condition, exposed to the inclemency of the weather; and the worst of all, to the intolerable heat of the sun. But this to the women was the height of cruelty and indignity; and especially to such as those here described, who had indulged themselves in all manner of delicacies of living, and all the superfluities of ornamental dress; and even whose faces had hardly ever been exposed to the sight of man. This is always mentioned as the hardest part of the lot of captives.
Behold, I am against you,” declares the LORD of Hosts. “I will lift your skirts over your face. I will show your nakedness to the nations and your shame to the kingdoms.
I will pelt you with filth and treat you with contempt; I will make a spectacle of you.
Pulpit Commentary on Nahum 3:5-6
Nineveh shall be like a vile woman exposed to the insults and ill treatment of the rabble (comp. Ezekiel 16:37, etc.). A gazing-stock. That all may see thee and take warning. LXX., εἰς παράδειγμα, “for a public example,” which recalls Matthew 1:19.
On that day the Lord will use a razor hired from beyond the Euphrates—the king of Assyria—to shave your head and the hair of your legs, and to remove your beard as well.
Elliots Commentary on Isaiah 7:19-20
Shall the Lord shave with a razor that is hired.–Better, “with the razor.” The words find a parallel in the “made him naked” of 2Chronicles 28:19. The term “hired” applies to the tribute which Ahaz was about to pay to Tilgath-pilneser. He thought that he was securing an ally: he was but hiring a razor (there is, perhaps, the implied thought that the razor is in other hands than his) that should sweep away all the signs of strength, and leave him an open shame and scorn to all who looked on him.
