Give ear, and hear my voice; give attention, and hear my speech.
Does he who plows for sowing plow continually? Does he continually open and harrow his ground?
1When he has leveled its surface, does he not scatter dill, sow cumin, and put in wheat in rows and barley in its proper place, and emmer as the border?
2For he is rightly instructed; his God teaches him.
Dill is not threshed with a threshing sledge, nor is a cart wheel rolled over cumin, but dill is beaten out with a stick, and cumin with a rod.
Does one crush grain for bread? No, he does not thresh it forever; when he drives his cart wheel over it with his horses, he does not crush it.
This also comes from the LORD of hosts; he is 3wonderful in counsel and excellent in wisdom.
