Isaiah 28:23-29

A Parable of Yahweh’s Work

23 Listen, and hear my voice! Listen attentively, and hear my word!
24 Is it all day [that] the plowman plows, opens to sow seed, harrows his ground?
25 When he has leveled its {surface}, does he not scatter dill, and sow cumin seed, and {plant} wheat [in] planted rows, and barley [in] an appointed place, and spelt grain [as] its border?
26 And his God instructs him about the prescription; he teaches him.
27 For dill is not threshed with [a] threshing sledge, nor is a wheel of a utility cart {rolled} over cumin, but dill is beaten out with [a] stick, and cumin with [a] rod.
28 Grain is crushed fine, but certainly one does not thresh it forever; and one drives the wheel of his cart, but his horses do not crush it.
29 This also comes forth from Yahweh of hosts. He is wonderful [in] advice; he makes great wisdom.
