Sackcloth fashion - the lone flower


The head was usually bare, or covered from too fierce a sunshine, or from rain, by a fold of the outer mantle, 2 Samuel 15:30 1 Kings 19:13 Esther 6:12 . The priests, however, wore a mitre, bonnet, or sacred turban; and after the captivity, the Jews adopted to some extent the turban, now so universal in the East. Women wore a variety of plain and ornamented headdresses. Veils were also an article of female dress, Isaiah 3:19 . They were of various kinds, and were used alike by married and unmarried women; generally as a token of modesty, or of subjection to the authority of the husband, Genesis 24:65 1 1 Corinthians 11:3-10 ; but sometimes for the purpose of concealment, Genesis 38:14 .
