Give you ear, and hear my voice; listen, and hear my speech.
Does he who plows to sow plow continually? does he [continually] open and harrow his ground?
When he has leveled the surface of it, doesn't he cast abroad the dill, and scatter the cumin, and put in the wheat in rows, and the barley in the appointed place, and the spelt in the border of it?
For his God does instruct him aright, [and] does teach him.
For the dill are not threshed with a sharp [threshing] instrument, neither is a cart wheel turned about on the cumin; but the dill are beaten out with a staff, and the cumin with a rod.
Bread [grain] is ground; for he will not be always threshing it: and though the wheel of his cart and his horses scatter it, he does not grind it.
This also comes forth from the LORD of Hosts, who is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in wisdom.
