We must treasure the Old Testament as a firm foundation for living out God's will in our lives. The close relationship between women, beauty, and wisdom is evident throughout, esp. in this meditation on modesty. Consider:
Women, according to Judaism, share a special trait called binah, loosely translated as "deep understanding." In the Torah, women are exemplified as having a rich inner world, possessing a unique power to influence people's character; they are described as having insight and perception beyond logic, external facts and superficial facades.
How very true. And the author points out that reducing a woman to visible body parts is distracting to others [read: men] and keeps those who interact with her from discovering her valuable essence. Well stated.
