Strongs Concordance:

Easton's Bible Dictionary

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 (1 Samuel 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 2 Chronicles 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."
