strtoupper('“I') Did Confound Him in All His Words”

Jacob knows the source of his power. He is able to confound Sherem not by matching his erudition, but through the Spirit's direct counsel. In this conflict we have the quintessential weak thing versus strong thing. Jacob is the uneducated "weak" man of God, where the great learning of Sherem has made him "strong." The spirit of God respects no such earthly qualifications, and is able to overpower them.
