16No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.16The king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.16The king is not saved by a mighty army; A warrior is not delivered by great strength.16There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.16A king is not saved by a large army; a warrior will not be delivered by great strength.
