In Hebrew: ‘Betrayal’

A daily dose of Hebrew.
Benedict Arnold.

Benedict Arnold.

בְּגִידָה

To betray is לִבְגּוֹד in Hebrew. לבגוד is an active-simple פָּעַל verb, whose root is ב.ג.ד (b.g.d), the same as that for clothing.

For example:

בְּגִידָה, פֵּרוּשָׁהּ הֲפָרַת אֵמוּן. Betrayal means (its interpretation is) a breach in trust.

and

הָאִישׁ הַהוּא בָּגַד בְּעַמּוֹ.
That man betrayed his people.

Someone who betrays or commits treason is a בּוֹגֵד if a male or a בּוֹגֶדֶת if a female.

What’s the connection between betrayal and clothing? I’m not sure. Go theorize.
