Genesis 38:14-1514she took off her widow’s garments a and covered herself with a veil, wrapping herself up, and sat at the entrance to b Enaim, which is on the road to Timnah. For she saw that Shelah was grown up, c and she had not been given to him in marriage. 15When Judah saw her, he thought she was a prostitute, for she had covered her face.
2 Kings 9:2222And when Joram saw Jehu, he said, “Is it peace, Jehu?” He answered, “What peace can there be, so long as d the whorings and the sorceries of your mother Jezebel are so many?”
2 Kings 9:30

Isaiah 3:16-2416 The Lord said:
f Because g the daughters of Zion are haughty
and walk with outstretched necks,
glancing wantonly with their eyes,
mincing along as they go,
h tinkling with their feet,
17therefore the Lord i will strike with a scab
the heads of j the daughters of Zion,
and the Lord will lay bare their secret parts.
18In that day the Lord will take away k the finery of the anklets, the l headbands, and the m crescents; 19the pendants, the bracelets, and the scarves; 20the n headdresses, the armlets, the sashes, the perfume boxes, and the amulets; 21the signet rings and o nose rings; 22the p festal robes, the mantles, the cloaks, and the handbags; 23the mirrors, the linen garments, the turbans, and the veils. 24 Instead of q perfume there will be rottenness;
and instead of a r belt, a rope;
and instead of s well-set hair, t baldness;
and instead of a rich robe, a u skirt of sackcloth;
and v branding instead of beauty.
Isaiah 23:1616 “Take a harp;
go about the city,
O forgotten prostitute!
Make sweet melody;
sing many songs,
that you may be remembered.”
Jeremiah 4:3030And you, O desolate one,
what do you mean that you dress in scarlet,
w that you adorn yourself with ornaments of gold,
x that you enlarge your eyes with paint?
In vain you beautify yourself.
y Your lovers despise you;
they seek your life.
1 Timothy 2:99likewise also z that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire,
