The word arom, rendered 'naked' in our Bibles, does not in many places mean absolute nakedness. It has this meaning in such passages as ; ; ; . But in other places it means one who is ragged or poorly clad (; ); which does not indeed differ from a familiar application of the word 'naked' among ourselves. A more peculiar and Oriental sense of the word is that in which it is applied to one who has laid aside his loose outer garment, and goes about in his tunic, and it was thus that Isaiah went 'naked' and barefoot (; comp. ). Persons in their own houses freely laid aside their outer garment, and appeared in their tunic and girdle: but this is undress, and they would count it improper to appear abroad, or to see company in their own house without the outer robe.
