Elijah is described as a "hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather." 2 Kings 1:8 . The same Hebrew word is many times translated 'skin.' In the N.T. John the Baptist had about his loins a 'leathern girdle,' Matthew 3:4; or 'of a skin' as in Mark 1:6 . We read of Simon a tanner in Acts 9:43; Acts 10:6,32; and the monuments show that the art of tanning was practised in Egypt, so that without doubt it was also known to the Israelites.
