1 Samuel 14:14 (King James Version)
And that first slaughter, which Jonathan and his armourbearer made, was about twenty men, within as it were an half acre of land, which a yoke of oxen might plow.
- an half acre of land
- or, half a furrow of an acre of land.
- The original is obscure and variously understood; but it is probably a proverbial expression for a small space.
