His eyes—darker than wine,
his teeth—whiter than milk. Bible

“his eyes—darker than wine.” The meaning of this verse is disputed. Eyes darker than wine and teeth whiter than milk describe ideal beauty in the ancient biblical culture. On the other hand, “eyes dark with wine and teeth white with milk” can indicate abundance—that Judah would have an abundance of good things. The REV follows most modern interpreters.
