Give ear and hear my voice, Listen and hear my words. (Isaiah 28:23)

Does the farmer plow continually to plant seed? Does he continually turn and harrow the ground? (Isaiah 28:24)

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? (Isaiah 28:25)

For his God instructs and teaches him properly. (Isaiah 28:26)

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. (Isaiah 28:27)

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. (Isaiah 28:28)

This also comes from the LORD of hosts, Who has made His counsel wonderful and His wisdom great. (Isaiah 28:29)
