“Now tuck your cloak under your belt like a man.
I will question you,
and you will answer me. Bible

“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.
