Tunic

Original I.S.B.E. article on “Dress” says chiton “resembled the Roman tunic, corresponding most nearly to our long shirt, reaching below the knee always, and, in case it was designed for dress occasions, reaching almost to the ground” (I.S.B.E., II:877). Later in the article, it is noted that the chiton of the peasantry was shorter like modern kamis of Syrian fellah which is to the knee.


Slide11 l.jpg

Tunic

Hebrew: KUTTONET--"a tunic...; generally with sleeves, coming down to the knees, rarely to the ankles" (Gesenius, 420; cf. Harris, 1:459; Brown, Driver, Briggs, 509).


Slide12 l.jpg

Wright says, “The tunic (inappropriately translated ‘coat’) was a shirt which was worn next to the skin. It was made of leather, hair-cloth, wool, linen, or in modern times, usually of cotton. The simplest form of it was without sleeves and reached to the knees or sometimes to the ankles. The well-to-do wore it with sleeves and extending to the ankles. Women as well as men wore it [see Cant. 5:3, A.R.V.], although there was no doubt a difference in style and pattern in what was worn by the two” (Fred H. Wight, Manners and Customs of Bible Lands, 91).

9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

KJV

    • “A sense of shame, modesty, is used regarding the demeanor of women in the church, I Tim. 2:9 ... ‘Shamefastness is that modesty which is ‘fast’ or rooted in the character...’ (Davies; Bible English, p. 12).... ‘Aidos would always restrain a good man from and unworthy act,...’ (Trench, Syn §§ xix, xx)” (Vines, Vol. IV, p. 17)

    • Strong suggests that it may be from two words which would give the idea of “downcast eyes” thus meaning “bashfulness” (#127).
