Plural in Proverbs 23:21, "Drowsiness will clothe a man with rags" (qera'im "torn garment"; compare 1 Kings 11:30), and figuratively in Isaiah 64:6 the King James Version, "All our righteousnesses are as filthy rags," in the sense of "tattered clothing" (beghedh, the Revised Version (British and American) "garment"). In Jeremiah 38:11, 12 the American Standard Revised Version translates cechabhah, as "rag" (the King James Version, the English Revised Version "old cast clout"), while the King James Version, the English Revised Version use "rotten rag" for melach (the American Standard Revised Version "worn-out garment"). Both cechabhah and melach mean "worn out."
