Wesley's Notes for Proverbs 11:22


11:22 So is a fair woman without discretion - Of beauty vain, of virtue void, What art thou in the sight of God? A slave to every base desire, A creature wallowing in the mire. Go, gaudy pageant of a day, Thy folly, with thy face display: Set all thy charms and graces out, And shew - the Jewel in thy snout!

    I think you are right. It is how you want to appear to others. I don't see a thing wrong with a short tennis skirt. It's practical.
