Apron stands in one passage of the Auth. Vers. for the Heb. חֲגוֹרָה (chagorah', a girdle, as usually), the fig-leaf bands which our first parents made to hide their shame (Ge 3:7); also for the Greek σιμικίνθιον (Ac 19:12), a term borrowed from the Lat. semicinctium, i.e. half-girdle or belt covering half the person, an article of apparel worn by artisans and servants.
