    Definitions for 2 Kings 10:22

    Vestments - Garments; clothing.
    Vestry - Wardrobe.

    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Kings 10:22

    He said unto him that was over the vestry - The word vestry comes from vestiarium, and that from vestes, garments, from vestio, I clothe; and signifies properly the place where the sacerdotal robes and pontifical ornaments are kept. The priests of Baal had their robes as well as the priests of the Lord; but the garments were such that one could be easily distinguished from the other.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Kings 10:22

    The vestry - The sacred robes of the Baal priests seem to have been of linen, and were probably white. The vestry here mentioned may, probably, be the robe-chamber of the royal palace, from which the king gave a festal garment to each worshipper.
