Isaiah 3:16-17 Judgment of the Women of Zion.

Isa 3:16 The LORD adds, “The women of Zion are arrogant. They walk with their noses in the air, making seductive glances, taking short little steps, jingling the ankle bracelets on their feet.”
Isa 3:17 The Lord will cause sores to appear on the heads of the women of Zion, and the LORD will make their foreheads bare.

Notes: The LORD adds, “The women of Zion are arrogant. They walk with their noses in the air……

Previously the LORD had rebuked the Princes (the Leaders), the magistrates and the people generally. Now he rebukes the women of Zion and the population for pride, luxury and haughtiness of the females. The daughters of Zion were those who lived on Mt Zion in Jerusalem. Compare the Reign of Uzziah  2Ch 26:5 He dedicated his life to serving God in the days of Zechariah, who taught him to fear God. As long as he dedicated his life to serving the LORD, the LORD gave him success. 2Ch 26:16 But when he became powerful, his pride destroyed him. He was unfaithful to the LORD his God. He went into the LORD’S temple to burn incense on the incense altar.

They walk with their noses in the air, making seductive glances, They were full of pride and haughtiness with wanton and flirting eyes.

Pro 6:12 A good-for-nothing scoundrel is a person who has a dishonest mouth.
Pro 6:13 He winks his eye, makes a signal with his foot, and points with his fingers.
Pro 6:14 He devises evil all the time with a twisted mind. He spreads conflict.

The LORD will strike with a scab the daughters of Zion. It seems that their hair would fall out (that long dark Israeli hair). and they would have some disease on their heads.  Then they would be shamed and exposed.

Isa 3:18 On that day the Lord will take away their fine things: jingling anklets, headbands, crescent-shaped necklaces,
Isa 3:19 pendants, bracelets, scarfs,
Isa 3:20 hats, ankle bracelets, blouses, perfume boxes, charms,
Isa 3:21 signet rings, nose rings,
Isa 3:22 fine robes, coats, shawls, purses,
Isa 3:23 mirrors, underwear, headdresses, and veils.

1Pe 3:3 Wives must not let their beauty be something external. Beauty doesn’t come from hairstyles, gold jewelry, or clothes.
