so they will be life to your soul,
and grace for your neck. Bible other translations

“neck.” “Neck” here is plural, but the prenominal suffix is 2nd person masculine plural, so a singular neck seems more appropriate. Of course, the neck’s adornment is a necklace, which we have already seen in Proverbs. Furthermore, a “neck” is a proper parallel to nephesh in the first stanza, which can mean “soul,” “life,” and “throat.”
