19: ουκ ερισει ουδε κραυγασει ουδε ακουσει τις εν ταις πλατειαις την φωνην αυτου— edit Textus Receptus
19: He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.— edit KJV text
19: He shall not contend, nor cry out, neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.— edit Douay text


He shall not strive, etc. He shall not shout, as a warrior. He shall be meek, and retiring, and peaceful. Streets were places of concourse. The meaning is, that he should not seek publicity and popularity.
