Bible Verse:
"Come now, let us reason together," says the Lord. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18) “Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.” (Psalm 51:7)
Meaning:
If something or someone is as white as snow, they are perfect or completely uncorrupted and honest.
Origin and Application:
White is synonymous with purity. In the Bible, white is a colour that symbolizes departure from sin. Once men reconcile their relationship with God, their sins are forgiven, and they become white as snow.
