Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
We meet with this word but twice in the Scripture, Mark 6:9; Acts 12:8. They formed the covering for the feet. In the eastern part of the world the going barefoot was considered as a token of respect in the presence of a superior; hence, when the Lord called to Moses from the bush, he commanded him to put off his shoes from his feet, for the ground was holy on which he stood, being made so by the divine presence. (Exodus 3:5) Hence Soloman also, in after-ages, admonished to keep the foot when going to the house of God. (Ecclesiastes 5:1)
