The same Hebrew phrase from which we get "coat of many colors" has been interpreted by various translators to mean:

  • "coat with long sleeves"
  • "long coat with stripes"
  • "a richly ornamented robe"
  • "a coat reaching to his feet"
  • "an ornamented tunic"
  • "a silk robe"
  • "a fine woolen cloak"
