CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
23:40 Wash thyself - After the manner of harlots.
1 Peter 3:3
Don't be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes.
2 Kings 9:30
When Jezebel, the queen mother, heard that Jehu had come to Jezreel, she painted her eyelids and fixed her hair and sat at a window.
Don't lust for her beauty. Don't let her coy glances seduce you.
On that day of judgment the Lord will strip away everything that makes her beautiful: ornaments, headbands, crescent necklaces,
You have given olive oil to Molech with many gifts of perfume. You have traveled far, even into the world of the dead, to find new gods to love.
What are you doing, you who have been plundered? Why do you dress up in beautiful clothing and put on gold jewelry? Why do you brighten your eyes with mascara? Your primping will do you no good! The allies who were your lovers despise you and seek to kill you.
And so you were adorned with gold and silver. Your clothes were made of fine linen and were beautifully embroidered. You ate the finest foods--choice flour, honey, and olive oil--and became more beautiful than ever. You looked like a queen, and so you were!
