מְעִיל m. an upper garment; an exterior tunic, wide and long, reaching to the ancles, but without sleeves; see 2 Samuel 13:18 compare Braun. De Vest. Sacerd. II. 5; Schrœder, De Vest. Mulierum, Hebr. p. 267; Hartmann’s Hebräerin, vol. iii., p. 512. It was worn by women (2 Sam. loc. cit.); by men of birth and rank, Job 1:20, 2:12 by kings, 1 Samuel 15:27, 18:4 24:5, 12 1 Samuel 24:12 by priests, 1 Samuel 28:14 specially by the high priest, with the ephod put over it, whence מְעִיל הָאֵפוֹד Exodus 28:31, 39:22. (The origin is not clear. It is not, however, improbable that the root מָעַל had the primary power of covering; hence of acting covertly, astutely, perfidiously; compare בָּגַד No. 1, and the remarks there made.)
