Be prepared, yes, prepare yourself, you and all your companies who are assembled to you, and you be a guard for them. Bible other translations

“and you be a guard for them.” This is in a military context, and thus has the implication of the leader being a guard to his gathered forces in the sense that he would lead them to victory. That idea is simplified and clarified in many versions that read something such as “take charge of them” (CJB); “take command of them” (NIV; NLT).
