Context Readings

A Parable Of Yahweh's Work

26 His God instructs him regarding the correct way, directing him how to plant. 27 For caraway is not threshed with a sharp sledge, nor is a cart wheel rolled over cumin. Instead, caraway is winnowed with a stick, and cumin with a rod. 28 It must be ground; one cannot keep threshing it forever. Even if he drives his cart and horses over it, he cannot crush it.
