Does the afarmerplowbcontinually to plantseed? Does he continually cturn and harrow the ground?
Does he not level its surface And sowdill and scatter1cummin And dplant2wheat in rows, Barley in its place and rye within its earea?
For his Godinstructs and teaches him properly.
For dill is not threshed with a 3threshingsledge, Nor is the cartwheelfdrivenovercummin; But dill is beaten out with a rod, and cummin with a club.
Grain for bread is crushed, Indeed, he does not continue to thresh it forever. Because the wheel of his cart and his horses eventually gdamage it, He does not thresh it longer.
29Thisalsocomes from the LORD of hosts, Who has made His counsel4wonderful and His wisdom5great.
