Translated headword: baddin, linen garment
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning a] sacred robe.[1] Daniel [says]: "I lifted up my eyes and looked, and there was a man clothed in a linen garment."[2]
Greek Original:
*baddi/n: stolh\ i(era/. *danih/l: h)=ra tou\s o)fqalmou/s mou kai\ ei)=don, kai\ h)=n a)nh\r e)ndedume/nos baddi/n.
The headword is a transliteration of Hebrew בּדים baḏīm ('fine linens'). This Hellenized form occurs only in the book of Daniel in the Septuagint (see n. 2 below) and in commentary and lexicography relating to it. Cf. Hesychius beta32, whence the LSJ entry (web address 1): 'a choice linen garment'. The Hebrew word (both plural and singular) occurs elsewhere in the Hebrew Bible, but is generally translated with other words in the Septuagint; e.g. Ezekiel 9:2, podh/rhs ('foot-length [garment]').
[1] Likewise, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon.
[2] Daniel 10:5; cf. 12:6, 12:7.
