SEWING (תָּפַר, H9529, to sew; ἐπι(ρ, G4804) ράπτω, to sew upon). The origin of the skill of sewing is lost in the antiquity of the race. The Book of Genesis, however, relates that the original pair sewed fig leaves to make aprons for themselves (Gen 3:7). Sewing was done by both men and women in the Mediterranean world. Jesus spoke of sewing, saying that “No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment” (Mark 2:21). It is very likely that Paul practiced the craft in tent-making, which was his trade.
