( 1 Samuel 6:7-12 ; Job 21:10 ; Isaiah 7:21 ) The heifer or young cow was not commonly used for ploughing, but only for treading out the corn. ( Hosea 10:11 ) but see Judg 14:18 when it ran about without any headstall, ( 26:4 ) hence the expression an "unbroken heifer," ( Hosea 4:16 ) Authorized Version "backsliding" to which Israel is compared.
