Tuck your cloak under your belt like a man,
for I will question you,
then you answer me! Bible other translations

“Tuck your cloak under your belt.” The literal Hebrew is “belt up your loins.” This refers to the custom of a man tying up his long clothing so he could move more quickly. In this context it is equivalent to “prepare for battle” like a man. See commentary on 2 Kings 4:29.
