When a farmer plows for planting, does he plow continually? Does he keep on breaking up and working the soil?
Read Isaiah 28:24 Using Other Translations
Doth the plowman plow all day to sow? doth he open and break the clods of his ground?
Does he who plows for sowing plow continually? Does he continually open and harrow his ground?
Does a farmer always plow and never sow? Is he forever cultivating the soil and never planting?
