The meaning of "Overcometh" in various phrases and sentences

Q: Co znaczy overcometh?
A: The verb "overcome" means to successfully deal with a problem or difficult situation. In Modern English, present tense verbs do not have any conjugated forms except for third person singular, which is -s ("you overcome," "he overcomes"). Middle English, which was spoken almost 1000 years ago, had verb conjugations. In Middle English, second person singular verbs ended in -est, and third person singular verbs ended in 'eth ("thou overcomest," "he overcometh"). Today, people sometimes, but rarely, use archaic verb forms from Middle English for different purposes. The bible used to be written with many archaic verb forms, but it is now usually written using modern language to make it more accessible, Shakespeare's works are written using these verb forms. In other usage, it is often used to be funny to refer to overly pompous people or circumstances, or to refer to something that happened a long time ago. In what context did you come across the "overcometh"? What was the purpose for using that word in the context in which you came across it?
