Women of the Bible 4: Who am I?

Can you guess this biblical woman?

Who am I?

I used to swish, mince, and dance as I walked. I was beautiful.

But God took away my:

  • tinkling ankle bracelets
  • round ornaments
  • chain necklaces and bracelets
  • head ornaments, earrings
  • nose jewels
  • beautiful apparel
  • veils
  • mirrors
  • hooded capes

I was ruined.

Instead of sweet perfumes, I no longer smelled good.

Instead of a beautiful sash, I wore a torn one.

Even my gorgeous, stylish hair fell out.

There was burning instead of beauty.

I ended up sitting on the ground instead of flaunting myself.

I am an allegory, but I represent reality.

Who am I? What happened to me? Why?
