MANTLE

A robe, cape, veil, or loose-fitting tunic worn as an outer garment. Many of the prophets wore them (1 Samuel 15:27; 1 Kings 19:13), as did women in Jerusalem (Isaiah 3:22) and Job (Job 1:20). The transference of the mantle from Elijah to Elisha signified the passing of prophetic responsibility and God's accompanying power. These garments have been worn from at least the time of the Exodus until the present. See Dress; Ornaments; Veil.
