speak [not with] a stiff neck;
arrogantly, proudly, and haughtily: or "hard things with a neck" F18; hard speeches against Christ and his people with an outstretched neck, in an imperious and insolent manner; for the righteous Judge will convince such of their hard speeches, and condemn them for them; ( Jude 1:14 Jude 1:15 ) .
