“I say to the boastful.
‘Do not boast.’
I say to the wicked.
‘Do not lift up your horn!
Do not lift up your horn on high!
Do not speak with an insolent neck.’”
This oracle continued by reminding the boastful that they should not be boastful. He reminded the wicked that they should not lift their horn on high. The horn was the symbol of strength or power. Of course, they should not speak with insolence.
