John 21:7  (King James Version)
Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.

fisher's coat
Or, upper coat, great coat, or, surtout, [ependutes ,] from
[epi ,] upon, and
[enduo ,] I clothe.* naked.
That is, he was only in his vest, or under garment; for [gumnos ,] naked, like the Hebrew
{arom,} is frequently applied to one who has merely laid aside
his outer garment. See 1 ; Sa 19:24 2 ; Sa 6:20 on which see the note. To which may be added what we read in the LXX, Job 22:6 ,"Thou has taken away the covering of the naked,"
[amphiazo,] the plaid, or blanket, in which they wrapped
themselves, and besides they had no other. In this sense Virgil says, {Nudus ara, sere nudus,} "plough naked, and sow naked," ie., strip off your upper garments.
