Of the Gadites there separated themselves to David to the stronghold in the wilderness, mighty men of valor, men trained for war, that could handle shield and spear; whose faces were like the faces of lions, and they were as swift as the roes on the mountains;

The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses, and as horsemen, so do they run.
They run like mighty men. They climb the wall like warriors. They each march in his line, and they don't swerve off course.
neither shall he stand who handles the bow; and he who is swift of foot won't escape; neither shall he who rides the horse deliver himself;
