“Presumptuous,” “Proud,” “Mocker,” are his names;
they belong to the one who acts with arrogant presumptuousness. Bible

“Presumptuous, Proud, Mocker.” The three words are all nouns. It is possible that “Presumptuous” and “Proud” define “mocker,” as is represented in most versions, but the NASB, for example, sees all three nouns as names (and thus also descriptions). The word “name” is singular in the text.

“acts with arrogant presumptuousness.” The Hebrew is more literally, “in the wrath of pride.” Pride results in arrogant presumptuousness and wrath.
