 1) to draw on (let him not draw on his foreskin)

 From the days of Antiochus Epiphanes [B.C. 175-164] down, there had
 been Jews who, in order to conceal from heathen persecutors or
 scoffers the external sign of their nationality, circumcision,
 sought artificially to compel nature to reproduce the prepuce, by
 extending or drawing forward with an iron instrument the remnant of
 it still left, so as to cover the glands.

—Thayer's (New Testament Greek-English Lexicon)

From G1909 and G4685; to draw over, that is, (with G0203 implied) efface the mark of circumcision (by recovering with the foreskin):—become uncircumcised.
