pes: In the King James Version the word (singular and plural) represents a large number of different Hebrew words, many of which have more or less the same significance, e.g. piece of meat or flesh (Ge 15:10; 2Sa 6:19; Eze 24:4); of bread or cake (1Sa 2:36; 30:12; Jer 37:21); of ground or land (2Sa 23:11); of wall (Ne 3:11,19 ff); of an ear (Am 3:12); of cloth or garment (1Ki 11:30); of millstone (Jg 9:53). It is used frequently in paraphrastic renderings of various Hebrew verbs: "break," "tear," "cut," etc., in pieces (Ge 44:28, etc.).

See the definition of piece in the KJV Dictionary

In the New Testament "piece" renders epiblema, "piece" or "patch of cloth" (Mt 9:16; Mr 2:21; Lu 5:36). It is also found in paraphrastic renderings--broken in pieces (Mr 5:4), pulled in pieces (Ac 23:10).
