Paint - Jezebel "painted her face" (2 Kings 9:30); and the practice of painting the face and the eyes seems to have been common (Jer. 4:30; Ezek. 23:40). An allusion to this practice is found in the name of Job's daughter (Job 42:14) Keren-happuch (q.v.). Paintings in the modern sense of the word were unknown to the ancient Jews.
