(See AGRICULTURE.) Ps 126:6; Hebrew "he goeth, going and weeping, bearing the draught of seed (i.e. seed to be drawn out by him from the seed basket, Am 9:13 margin) coming he shall come with rejoicing (joyous cry), bearing his sheaves"; the long continued sorrow and the consequent longer joy are happily expressed by the repetitions. The spiritual sowing is illustrated in Pr 11:18; Mt 13:19,24; 2Co 9:6; Ga 6:7. Heavenly reward and hell are not arbitrary, but the natural and necessary development of the seed of holiness and that of sin respectively.
