 for Apron
From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

     found in the Authorized Version in Gen. 3:7, of the bands of
     fig-leaves made by our first parents. In Acts 19:12, it denotes
     the belt or half-girdle worn by artisans and servants round the
     waist for the purpose of preserving the clothing from injury. In
     marg. of Authorized Version, Ruth 3:15, correctly rendered
     instead of "vail." (R.V., "mantle.")
