Change of Raiment

CHANGE OF RAIMENT. A KJV and ASV tr. of a Heb. expression denoting not simply a change of garments, but special “festal garments” (RSV) for which one’s ordinary garments were changed (Gen 45:22; Judg 14:12, 13, 19; 2 Kings 5:5, 22, 23). In the E kings and other high ranking persons often expressed their esteem with presents of such gala robes.
