31 The horse is readied for the day of battle, But victory comes from Hashem.
SUS mu-KHAN l’-YOM mil-kha-MAH v’-la-do-NAI ha-t’-shu-AH
לא סוּס מוּכָן לְיוֹם מִלְחָמָה וְלַיהֹוָה הַתְּשׁוּעָה׃
21:31 But victory is of the LORD
Throughout the Bible, horses are mentioned as animals of war. Here, King Shlomo is emphasizing an important lesson that is no less true today than it was when he said it centuries ago: Man prepares as much as possible, but ultimately, all victory and success comes only from Hashem.
