Naked @ This word denotes (1) absolute nakedness Genesis:2:25; Job:1:21; Ecclesiastes:5:15; Micah:1:8; Amos:2:16); (2) being poorly clad Isaiah:58:7; James:2:15). It denotes also (3) the state of one who has laid aside his loose outer garment (Lat. nudus), and appears clothed only in a long tunic or under robe worn next the skin ( 1Samuel:19:24; Isaiah:47:3; comp. Mark:14:52; John:21:7). It is used figuratively, meaning "being discovered" or "made manifest" Job:26:6; Hebrews:4:13). In Exodus:32:25 the expression "the people were naked" (A.V.) is more correctly rendered in the Revised Version "the people were broken loose", i.e., had fallen into a state of lawlessness and insubordination. In 2Chronicals:28:19 the words "he made Judah naked" (A.V.), but Revised Version "he had dealt wantonly in Judah," mean "he had permitted Judah to break loose from all the restraints of religion."
