Kol K'voda Bas Melech P'nima

so why is it that the next line is
Tishchot zehav l'vusha.
......and her dress is golden jewelry
sounds very internal and personal, no?

Does anyone have an answer? Because G-d knows how many times that pasuk has been thrown at us.

  • Just on first glance (without opening up a Nach), I would say "The dignity of a princess is internal, despite the fact that she wears gold outside. The point of the pasuk is that it is not the wealth that makes the princess significant, as most people think and mistakenly try to mimic in order to acheive a similar social status. It is specifically her attitude that makes her regal, and this is what others should try and duplicate.

  • I had a business partner that once told me a woman should have an iron fist with a velvet glove to succeed in business, and that my problem was that I have a velvet fist with a glove of armor.

    If you want to get technical, lulei demistifina, Gold is Dinim and Silver is Chassadim. in regards to her body she should behave with dinim judging who gets near it not chassadim.

    There is an english song that goes, something to the effect of "you’ve got to be cruel to be kind"

  • It is because she is P'nima, not walking naked in the street, the reality is her dress is golden jewlery; even if it looks like a drab school uniform.
