God bless everyone!! I am wondering something about the below passage. Please help me in the best way possible. Maybe the hebrew meaning for beauty or something.. Isaiah 61:3 To console those who mourn in Zion, To give then beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; It has been said that beauty in this passage is referring to the A Hebrew woman's veil. Which indicates or is symbolic of purity, the virgin bride was the only one allowed to where the veil. So that when we say beauty for ashes, God is taking our ashes and placing us in a virginal state [cleanliness, purity, untouched, without blemish] I don't know if the word beauty actually refers to this is my question?
