The usual  (and my) interpretation is “don’t brag about how you’re going to win, wait unit you’ve won” – a Biblical and bellicose, equivalent of “don’t count your chickens before they’ve hatched”.

One who puts on his armour should not boast like one who takes it off.
Ahab, King of Israel; 1 Kings 20:11
