Yigal, you are right that Christian translations, dating back at least 
to KJV, tend to have "disciples" here. And so does JPS (1985).

BDB lists LIMMUD as an adjective meaning "taught", citing Isaiah 8:16, 
50:4 (twice) and 54:13, or "accustomed", citing Jeremiah 2:24, 13:23. 
"Covering" hardly works in Isaiah 50:4.

There seem to be no New Testament quotations or allusions to this verse, 
according to the list in the UBS Greek NT.
