Coat

Coat [S]

the tunic worn like the shirt next the skin ( Leviticus 16:4 ; Cant. 5:3 ; 2 Sam 15:32 ; Exodus 28:4 ; 29:5 ). The "coats of skins" prepared by God for Adam and Eve were probably nothing more than aprons ( Genesis 3:21 ). This tunic was sometimes woven entire without a seam ( John 19:23 ); it was also sometimes of "many colours" ( Genesis 37:3 ; RSV marg., "a long garment with sleeves"). The "fisher's coat" of John 21:7 was obviously an outer garment or cloak, as was also the "coat" made by Hannah for Samuel ( 1 Samuel 2:19 ). (See DRESS .)
