To strip.

And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know judgment? Who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones; Who also eat the flesh of my people, and FLAY their skin from off them; and they break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron. ( Micah 3:1-3 )
