|New International Version (© 2011)|
His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;
King James Bible
He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
American Standard Version
He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: He taketh no pleasure in the legs of a man.
Young's Literal Translation
Not in the might of the horse doth He delight, Not in the legs of a man is He pleased.
Psalm 147:10 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He delighteth not - The horse, among all animals, is most delighted in by man for beauty, strength, and fleetness. And a man's legs, if well proportioned, are more admired than even the finest features of his face. Though God has made these, yet they are not his peculiar delight.
