Bonnet . With the exception of   Isaiah 3:20 , this is the AV [Note: Authorized Version.] designation of the special headdress of the rank and file of the priesthood according to the priestly writer (  Exodus 28:40;   Exodus 29:9 etc., RV [Note: Revised Version.] head-tire ). It consisted of a long swathe of fine white linen wound round the head note   Exodus 29:9 RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘bind ( or wind) head-tires’ to form an egg-shaped turban. Cf. Jos. [Note: Josephus.] Ant . III. vii. 3; and Rich, Dict. Rom. and Gr. Ant. s.v. ‘pileus’ for illust. of the egg-shaped cap of Ulysses, with which Jerome compares the priestly turban. See Dress, 5, Mitre.

was a covering for the head, worn by the Jewish priests. Josephus says, that the bonnet worn by the private priests was composed of several rounds of linen cloth, turned in and sewed together, so as to appear like a thick linen crown. The whole was entirely covered with another piece of linen, which came down as low as their forehead, and concealed the deformity of the seams. See  Exodus 28:40 . The high priest's bonnet was not much different from that which has been described.

bon´et  : In the King James Version the designation of the special headdress of the rank and file of the priesthood, the Revised Version (British and American) "head-tire" ( Exodus 28:40 ). It consisted of a long swath of fine white linen wound around the head in oriental fashion. The Hebrew word found in  Exodus 29:9 the Revised Version (British and American), "to bind head-tires," literally "to wind head-tires," means, in the light of usage, "to form an egg-shaped turban." Compare Josephus, Ant , III, vii, 3; and see Rich, Dict. Roman and Greek Ant , under the word pileus , for illustration of the egg-shaped cap of Ulysses, with which Jerome compared the priestly turban. See Dress; Mitre , etc.
