|24||Doth the plowman plow all day to sow? doth he open and break the clods of his ground?|
|25||When he hath made plain the face thereof, doth he not cast abroad the fitches, and scatter the cummin, and cast in the principal wheat and the appointed barley and the rie in their place?|
|26||For his God doth instruct him to discretion, and doth teach him.|
|27||For the fitches are not threshed with a threshing instrument, neither is a cart wheel turned about upon the cummin; but the fitches are beaten out with a staff, and the cummin with a rod.|
|28||Bread corn is bruised; because he will not ever be threshing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it with his horsemen.|
|29||This also cometh forth from the LORD of hosts, which is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in working.|
Isa 28:24-29, (MKJV)
24 Does the plowman plow all day to sow? Does he open and break the clods of his ground? 25 When he has made the face of it level, does he not cast out the dill and scatter the cummin, and throw in the choice wheat and the chosen barley and the spelt in its border? 26 For his God instructs him to do right; his God teaches him. 27 For the dill is not threshed with a threshing instrument, nor is a cart wheel turned on cummin; but the dill is beaten out with a staff and the cummin with a rod. 28 Bread grain is crushed, but not always does one thresh it with threshing. And he drives the wheel of his cart; and his horses do not beat it small. 29 This also comes out from the LORD of hosts, who is wonderful in wisdom, making sound wisdom great.
Isa 28:24-29, (NASB)
24 Does the farmer plow continually to plant seed? Does he continually turn and harrow the ground? 25 Does he not level its surface And sow dill and scatter cummin And plant wheat in rows, Barley in its place and rye within its area? 26 For his God instructs and teaches him properly. 27 For dill is not threshed with a threshing sledge, Nor is the cartwheel driven over cummin; But dill is beaten out with a rod, and cummin with a club. 28 Grain for bread is crushed, Indeed, he does not continue to thresh it forever. Because the wheel of his cart and his horses eventually damage it, He does not thresh it longer. 29 This also comes from the Lord of hosts, Who has made His counsel wonderful and His wisdom great.
Isa 28:24-29, (LITV)
24 Does the plowman plow all day to sow? Does he open and break the clods of his ground? 25 When he has leveled its surface, does he not strew black cummin, and scatter cummin, and place wheat in rows, and barley in its place, and spelt in its border? 26 And He instructs him for the right; his God teaches him. 27 For black cummin is not threshed with the sledge; nor is a cartwheel turned on cummin. But black cummin is beaten out with the staff, and cummin with the rod. 28 Bread is crushed, but not always does one thresh it with threshing; and he drives the wheel of his cart; and his horses do not beat it small. 29 This also comes from Jehovah of Hosts, doing wonders in counsel, making sound wisdom great.
