English Translation[edit]

If she was clothed in white - she is clothed in black; if she had ornaments of gold, and chokers, nose rings, or finger rings - they are removed from her, in order to disgrace her. And after this an Egyptian robe is brought and is tied above her breasts. and all who want to see may come to see, outside of her male and female servants, because her heart is known to them. All the women are permitted to see, for it says (Ezekiel 23, 48) "And it will chasties all the women so they will not do your lewdness."
