KJV Translation Count — Total: 1x
The KJV translates Strong's G1463 in the following manner: be clothed with (1x).
  1. knot or band by which two things are fastened together, to fasten or gird one's self

    This was the white scarf or apron of slaves, which was fastened to the belt of the vest and distinguished slaves from freemen. Therefore, 1 Pet 5:5 ("gird yourselves with humility as your servile garb") encourages Christians to show their subjection one to another by putting on humility. This could also refer to the overalls which slaves wore to keep clean while working—an exceedingly humble garment.

STRONGS NT 1463: ἐγκομβόομαι
ἐγκομβόομαι [see ἐν, III. 3], -οῦμαι: [1 aorist middle ἐνεκομβωσάμην]; (from ἐν and κομβόω, to knot, tie, and this from κόμβος, knot, band (German Schleife), by which two things are fastened together), to fasten or gird on oneself; the ἐγκόμβωμα was the white scarf or apron of slaves, which was fastened to the girdle of the vest [ἐξωμίς], and distinguished slaves from freemen; hence, 1 Peter 5:5, τὴν ταπεινοφρ. ἐγκομβώσασθε, gird yourselves with humility as your servile garb (ἐγκόμβωμα) i. e. by putting on humility show your subjection one to another. That this idea lies in the phrase is shown by C. F. A. Fritzsche, with his usual learning, in Fritzschiorum Opuscc., p. 259ff.
