Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 1463: ἐγκομβωμαι

ἐγκομβωμαι (see ἐν, III. 3), ἐγκομβοῦμαι: (1 aorist middle ἐνεκομβωσαμην); (from ἐν and κομβόω, to knot, tie, and this from κομβος, knot, band (German Schleife), by which two things are fastened together), to fasten or gird on oneself; the ἐγκομβωμα 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, τήν ταπεινοφροσύνην ἐγκομβώσασθε, gird yourselves with humility as your servile garb (ἐγκομβωμα) 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.

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance

Middle voice from en and komboo (to gird); to engirdle oneself (for labor), i.e. Figuratively (the apron as being a badge of servitude) to wear (in token of mutual deference) -- be clothed with.
