Sight, for size. (Josephus) Hebrew, "a man of great aspect "which 1 Paralipomenon properly explains "five cubits high. " Hand.

(Haydock) Some men, with a stick or codgel, will not fear to encounter a man armed; (Calmet) as we see exemplified in Q. Curtius, (ix. 7,) where Dioxippus, the Athenian wrestler, overcame Horratas of Macedon, who had challenged him out in a fit of drunkenness. (Haydock)
