(Isa. 3:18) Does this mean that women should not wear makeup and jewelry?

CLAIM: Isaiah deplores the women of Israel for wearing jewelry, perfume, and nice clothing in this section of his book. Does this mean that God forbids this for women universally today?

RESPONSE: God isn’t against beauty; instead, he is against the lack of love and inward spiritual health of these women. See comments on 1 Peter 3:3.
