Simon Peter, when he heard that it was the Lord, girt his coat about him, (for he was naked,) and cast himself into the sea. But the other disciples came in the ship, (for they were not far from the land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.

What's the exact word for "naked" used here?  Does anyone know the possible connotations?  Was he sunbathing or something?  was this a practice in ancient Israel?
