Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 3:20

_ _ bonnets — turbans.

_ _ ornaments of the legs — the short stepping-chains from one foot to another, to give a measured gait; attached to the “tinkling ornaments” (Isaiah 3:16).

_ _ headbands — literally, “girdles.”

_ _ tablets — rather, “houses of the breath,” that is, smelling boxes [Vulgate].

_ _ earrings — rather, amulets suspended from the neck or ears, with magic formulae inscribed; the root means to “whisper” or “conjure.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 3:16-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 3:20

Tablets — He seems to mean boxes of perfumes.
