Isaiah 28:26 Meaning and Commentary

Isaiah 28:26

For his God doth instruct him to discretion, [and] doth
teach him.
] God gives the husbandman instruction and discretion how to sow his seed, at what time, and in a proper place; for this refers to what goes before; though some think a new act is here intended, namely, threshing or beating out of corn, rendering the words, "and he" (the husbandman) "beateth it out, according to the discretion", or "judgment, his God teaches him" F8; which is expressed in general terms here, and is next particularly insisted on in the following verses ( Isaiah 28:27-29 ) .


F8 "Excutit illud ad eam rationem, [quam] Deus, ipsius docet eum", Piscator, Gataker; "vel colligat" Junius & Tremellius.

Isaiah 28:26 In-Context

24 Does he who plows for sowing plow continually? Does he continually open and harrow his ground?
25 When 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?
26 For he is rightly instructed; his God teaches him.
27 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.
28 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.
