I find ten instances in the LXX: Gen 3:7, Ruth 3:15, Prov 31:24, Jer 13:1-2
(2x), Jer 13:6-7 (2x), Jer 13:10-11 (2x); it's glossed as "wrap-around,"
"skirt,"apron." I noted also 38 instances in the LXX of PERIZWNNUMI,
evidently the word for "gird up one's loins" in order to prepare for battle
or travel, but i haven't cataloged the instances. This comes from
AcCordance, by the way, the Mac form of Gramcord.
