And Noah began to he a husbandman, - so he planted a vineyard:
Then shall there dwell throughout Judah itself and all the cities thereof, together, - Husbandmen, who shall move about with a flock;
and Beat down with thee - the shepherd and his flock, and Beat down with thee - the plowman and his yoke; - and Beat down with thee - governors and deputies:
Therefore, thus, saith Yahweh, God of hosts, My Lord, In all broadways, shall be lamentation, and, in all streets, shall they say, Alas! Alas! And they shall call the husbandman unto the mourning, and, unto the lamentation, them who know a wailing song;
But he will say, No prophet, am I, - One tilling the ground, am I, for, one of the common people, hath owned me from my youth.
Another parable, hear ye: - A man there was, a householder, who planted a vineyard, and, a wall around it, placed, and digged in it a wine-vat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, - and left home.
And he sent forth, unto the husbandmen, in the season, a servant, that, from the husbandmen, he might receive of the fruits of the vineyard;
He will come, and destroy these husbandmen, and give the vineyard unto others. But, when they heard it, they said - Far be it!
The toiling husbandman, ought, first, of the fruits, to partake:
Be patient, therefore, brethren, until the Presence of the Lord: - Lo! the husbandman, awaiteth the precious fruit of the earth, having patience for it, until it receive the early and the latter rain:
