'Farmer' in the Bible
With you I will smash the shepherd and his flock;with you I will smash the farmer and his ox-team.With you I will smash governors and officials.
Therefore Yahweh, the God of Hosts, the Lord, says:There will be wailing in all the public squares;they will cry out in anguish in all the streets.The farmer will be called on to mourn,and professional mourners to wail.
The hardworking farmer ought to be the first to get a share of the crops.
Therefore, brothers, be patient until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth and is patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains.
