In the Authorized Version of Ezek. 21:26, this Hebrew word is rendered “diadem,” but in the Revised Version, “mitre.” It was a twisted band of fine linen, 8 yards in length, coiled into the form of a cap, and worn on official occasions (Leviticus 8:9; 16:4; Zechariah 3:5). On the front of it was a golden plate with the inscription, “Holiness to the Lord.”
The mitsnepheth differed from the mitre or head-dress (migba'ah) of the common priest.
