Hadasah (Esther) 1:10-12 On the seventh day, when the heart of the sovereign was glad with wine, he ordered Mahuman, Bazata, Churabuna, Bagata, and Abagata, Zaytar, and Karakas, the seven eunuchs who were in attendance in the presence of Sovereign Achashurush, (11) to bring Sovereigness Vashti before the sovereign, with her royal crown, in order to show her beauty to the people and the officials, for she was lovely to look upon. (12) But Sovereigness Vashti refused to come at the sovereign’s command brought by his eunuchs. And the sovereign was very wroth, and his rage burned within him.
Psalms 45:10-11 Listen, O daughter, and see, And incline your ear, And forget your own people and your father’s house; (11) And let the Sovereign delight in your beauty; Because He is your Master – bow yourself to Him.
Psalms 50:1-3 Al Aluahim YAHUAH shall speak, and He shall call the earth from the rising of the sun to its going down. (2) From Tsyun, the perfection of beauty, Aluahim shall shine forth. (3) Our Aluahim comes, and is not silent – A fire consumes before Him, and it shall be very stormy all around Him.
Proverbs 6:23-26 For the command is a lamp, and the Turah a light, and reproofs of discipline a way of life, (24) To guard you against an evil woman, from the flattering tongue of a strange woman. (25) Do not desire her beauty in your heart, neither let her captivate you with her eyelids. (26) For because of a whore – to a crust of bread; And an adulteress hunts a precious life.
Proverbs 31:30-31 Favour is deceptive and beauty is vain; A woman who fears YAHUAH is to be praised. (31) Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.
Yashaw’yahu 3:18-26 In that day YAHUAH takes away the finery of the anklets, and the headbands, and the crescents, (19) the pendants, the bracelets and the veils, (20) the headdresses, and the leg ornaments, and the sashes, and the perfume bottles, and the amulets, (21) the rings, and the nose jewels, (22) the costly robes, and the cloaks, and the shawls, and the purses, (23) the mirrors, and the fine linen, and the turbans, and the large veils. (24) And it shall be: Instead of a sweet fragrance, a smell of decay; and instead of a belt, a rope; and instead of well-set hair, baldness; and instead of a festal robe, a girding of sackcloth; and branding instead of beauty. (25) Your men shall fall by the sword, and your strength in battle. (26) And her gates shall lament and mourn, and she, deserted, shall sit on the ground.
Yashaw’yahu 33:15-20 He who walks righteously and speaks what is straight, he who rejects the gain of oppressions, who keeps his hands from accepting bribes, who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed, and shuts his eyes from seeing evil – (16) he shall inhabit the heights; strongholds of rocks be his refuge. His bread shall be given him, his water be steadfast. (17) Your eyes shall see the Sovereign in His beauty, see a land that is far off. (18) Your heart ponders fear, “Where is the scribe? Where is he who weighs? Where is he who counts the towers?” (19) No longer shall you see a fierce people, a people of too deep a lip to hear, of a jabbering tongue no one understands. (20) See Tsyun, the city of our appointed time; your eyes shall see Yurushalam, an undisturbed home, a tent not taken down. Its stakes are never removed, nor any of its cords broken.
Lamentations 2:13-16 How shall I admonish you, to what shall I compare you, O daughter of Yurushalam? To what shall I liken you to comfort you, O maiden daughter of Tsyun? For your breach is as great as the sea. Who shall heal you? (14) Your prophets have seen falsehood and folly for you, and have not shown you your crookedness, to turn back your captivity. But their visions for you are false and misleading messages. (15) All who pass by have clapped their hands at you. They have whistled, and they shake their heads at the daughter of Yurushalam, “Is this the city that is called ‘The perfection of beauty, the joy of all the earth’?” (16) All your enemies have opened their mouth against you; They have whistled and they gnash their teeth. They say, “We have swallowed her up! This is certainly the day we waited for; We have found it, we have seen it.”
Yachazaq’al 16:14-19 “And your name went out among the nations because of your beauty, for it was perfect, by My splendour which I had put on you,” declares the Master YAHUAH. (15) “But you trusted in your own beauty, and whored because of your name, and poured out your whorings on everyone passing by who would have it. (16) “And you took some of your garments and made multi-coloured high places for yourself, and whored on them – which should not have come about, nor shall it be. (17) “And you took your splendid adornments, of My gold and My silver that I gave you, and made for yourself images of a male and whored with them. (18) “And you took your embroidered garments and covered them, and you set My oil and My incense before them. (19) “And My food which I gave you, fine flour and oil and honey which I fed you, you set it before them as sweet incense – and so it was,” declares the Master YAHUAH.
Yachazaq’al 16:23-25 “Then it came to be after all your evil – ‘Woe, woe to you!’ declares the Master YAHUAH – (24) that you also built an arched place for yourself, and made a high place in every street for yourself. (25) “You built your high places at the head of every way, and made your beauty to be loathed. And you parted your feet to everyone who passed by, and increased your whorings.”
Yachazaq’al 27:1-4,11 The word of YAHUAH came again to me, saying, (2) “Now, son of man, take up a lamentation for Tsur, (3) and you shall say to Tsur, ‘You who dwell at the entrance to the sea, merchant of the peoples on many coastlands, thus said the Master YAHUAH, “O Tsur, you yourself have said, ‘I am perfect in beauty.’ (4) “Your borders are in the heart of the seas. Your builders have perfected your beauty. (11) “The sons of Aruad, and your army were on your walls all around, and the Gamadim were in your towers. They hung their shields on your walls all around, they perfected your beauty.
Yachazaq’al 28:1-10 And the word of YAHUAH came to me, saying, (2) “Son of man, say to the prince of Tsur, ‘Thus said the Master YAHUAH, “Because your heart is lifted up, and you say, ‘I am Al, I sit in the seat of Aluahim, in the heart of the seas,’ whereas you are a man, and not Al, though you set your heart as the heart of Aluahim! (3) “Look, are you wiser than Dany’al? Has no secret been hidden from you? (4) “By your wisdom and your understanding you have made riches for yourself, and gathered gold and silver into your treasuries. (5) “By your great wisdom, by your trade you have increased your riches, and your heart is lifted up because of your riches.” (6) ‘Therefore thus said the Master YAHUAH, “Because you have set your heart as the heart of Aluahim, (7) therefore see, I am bringing against you strangers, the ruthless ones of the nations. And they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom, and they shall profane your splendour. (8) “Down into the Pit they shall bring you, and you shall die the death of the slain in the heart of the seas. (9) “Would you still say before him who slays you, ‘I am Aluahim’, whereas you are man, and not Al, in the hand of him who slays you? (10) “The death of the uncircumcised you shall die, by the hand of foreigners. For I have spoken,” declares the Master YAHUAH.’ ”
Yachazaq’al 28:11-19 And the word of YAHUAH came to me, saying, (12) “Son of man, take up a lamentation for the sovereign of Tsur, and you shall say to him, ‘Thus said the Master YAHUAH, “You were sealing up a pattern, complete in wisdom and perfect in beauty. (13) “You were in Awdan, the garden of Aluahim. Every precious stone was your covering: the ruby, topaz, and diamond, beryl, shoham, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald and gold. The workmanship of your settings and mountings was prepared for you on the day you were created. (14) “You were the anointed kurub that covered. And I placed you, you were on the set-apart mountain of Aluahim. You walked up and down in the midst of stones of fire. (15) “You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, until unrighteousness was found in you. (16) “By the greatness of your trade you became filled with violence within, and you sinned. So I thrust you from the mountain of Aluahim, and I destroyed you, O covering kurub, from the midst of the stones of fire. (17) “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty, you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendour. I threw you to the earth, I laid you before sovereigns, to look at you. (18) “You profaned your set-apart places by your many crookednesses, by the unrighteousness of your trading. Therefore I brought forth fire from your midst. It has devoured you, and I turned you to ashes upon the earth before the eyes of all who see you. (19) “All who knew you among the peoples were astonished at you. Waste you shall be, and cease to be, forever.” ’ ”
Zakuryahu 9:12-17 “Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of the expectation. Even today I declare that I return double to you. (13) “For I shall bend Yahudah for Me, I shall fill the bow with Aphuraim, and I shall stir up your sons, O Tsyun, against your sons, O Yun (Greece), and I shall make you like the sword of a mighty man.” (14) And YAHUAH shall appear for them, and His arrow go forth like lightning, and the Master YAHUAH sound the ram’s horn. And He shall go with whirlwinds from the south, (15) YAHUAH of hosts shall shield them. And they shall devour and trample on sling stones. And they shall drink, roar as if with wine, and they shall be filled like basins, like the corners of the altar. (16) And YAHUAH their Aluahim shall save them in that day, as the flock of His people, for the stones of a diadem, sparkling over His land. (17) For what goodness is His, and what beauty is His. Grain make the young men thrive, and new wine the maidens!
