In reality these men are incompetent to explain your glory. Men appear to be keen on congregational singing but they are like goats compared to the elephant-like stalwarts in the field of devotion. The difference is like that between a lion and a wolf. These men surrender their discrimination to the whims and fancies of libertines just to amass wealth. They are least fit to expound your glory. They appear to be keen on congregational singing merely to appear as devotees in the eyes of others.
