  • Hi Ubiquitous Student, welcome to BH.SE - thanks for contributing! Please do take the Site Tour or check the Help Center to learn more about the site's context and what kind of questions to ask here. I've closed the question as it stands as off-topic. In a nutshell - in hermeneutics we always 'start from the text' and deal with questions that naturally arise from it. If it's not a question about a text, it's probably off-topic.

  • @SteveTaylor, sorry, I wasn't aware of it. Anyway, I have a good point to start from a text: proverbs 31:22, according to some translations "She has made a carpet for herself and a robe of fine white linen and of purple". biblehub.com/proverbs/31-22.htm Commented Aug 3, 2021 at 13:10
  • @PerryWebb Thank you for your advice. I've taken it. history.stackexchange.com/questions/65679/… Commented Aug 3, 2021 at 13:11
