Isaiah 61:10 – I will rejoice greatly in the LORD, my soul will exult in my God; for He has clothed me with garments of salvation and wrapped me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom wears a priestly headdress, as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

meil  מְעִיל – a robe – From ma’al in the sense of covering; a robe (i.e. Upper and outer garment) — cloke, coat, mantle, robe.

Along the bottom hem of the Jewish high priest’s blue robe was a row of pomegranates and bells (see Exodus 28:33-35 and Exodus 39:24-26).

Isaiah 7:18 – Judgment to Come
17 The LORD will bring on you and on your people and on the house of your father a time unlike any since the day Ephraim separated from Judah—He will bring the king of Assyria.” 18 On that day the LORD will whistle to the flies at the farthest streams of the Nile and to the bees in the land of Assyria.

Zechariah 10:8 – Judah and Israel will be Restored
…7 Ephraim will be like a mighty man, and their hearts will be glad as with wine. Their children will see it and be joyful; their hearts will rejoice in the LORD. 8 I will whistle for them to gather, for I have redeemed them; and they will be as numerous as they once were. 9 Though I sow them among the nations, they will remember Me in distant lands; they and their children will live and return

Revelation 7:9 – 
After this I looked and saw a multitude too large to count, from every nation and tribe and people and tongue, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.

They were wearing white robes and holding palm branches in their hands.

THE ROBE, Wes King (1993) –  filmed on the Oregon coast –

We saw Wes King and Kim Hill live in Eugene, Oregon, about the time this video was filmed in the 1990s – their music has always been a foundational inspiration to me.
