“Her clothing is silk and purple.…”
- Proverbs 31:22
“And Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal apparel of blue and white, and with a great crown of gold, and with a garment of fine linen and purple: and the city of Shushan rejoiced and was glad.”
— Esther 8:15
“There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day.”
— Luke 16:19
“They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him. And they began to call out to him, ‘Hail, king of the Jews!’”
— Mark 15:17-18
