agree  Noah: I believe that the expression in Hebrew has always required a prepositional phrase; at least that is how it has been used in writing. Under the influence of the American civil rights song "We shall overcome," more recently the object is omitted.

Prepositional phrase: to be or not to be


Explanation:
Re Noah's comment: Not sure I agree that it needs a prepositional phrase (I think you mean INdirect object, as far as Hebrew is concerned). In fact, I believe the etymology is from 'gibor', brave, so you do not need an object. If you do use one, it means 'stronger/braver than', hence 'to overcome'.
