Do not desire her beauty in your heart,
and do not allow her to capture you with her eyes. Bible

“eyes.” The Hebrew is literally “eyelids,” but that seems to be a synecdoche; the part of the eye for the whole eye. Although women seem to have always batted their eyelids to be seductive, in ancient times just as today, women painted and decorated their eyes in many different ways to bring attention to their eyes. Job named one of his daughters “Keren-happuch,” which seems to mean, “horn [or dish] of eye-paint” (Job 42:14).
