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