Old English for hood or veil (Isaiah 3:22), mitpahath. In Rth 3:15 a shawl or broad cloak thrown over head and body. Isaiah (Isaiah 3:22) introduces it among the concomitants of luxury with which the women of Israel had burdened themselves, so as to copy the Egyptian and other people's habits of braiding the hair, etc.
