man-of-sorrows"The Man Of Sorrows" is the 10th song from Iron Maiden's album The Book of Souls. The track should not be confused with Bruce Dickinson's 1997 song "Man of Sorrows", as they are completely unrelated.

The phrase translated into English as "Man of Sorrows" ("vir dolorum" in the Vulgate, the Layin translation of the Bible) occurs at verse 3:

He is despised and rejected of men, a Man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief. And we hid as it were our faces from Him; He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.
