'Till' in the Bible
No plant of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up; for Yahweh God had not caused it to rain on the earth. There was not a man to till the ground,
Therefore Yahweh God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken.
From now on, when you till the ground, it won't yield its strength to you. You shall be a fugitive and a wanderer in the earth."
You shall till the land for him, you, and your sons, and your servants; and you shall bring in [the fruits], that your master's son may have bread to eat: but Mephibosheth your master's son shall eat bread always at my table." Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.
Can you hold the wild ox in the furrow with his harness? Or will he till the valleys after you?
The oxen likewise and the young donkeys that till the ground will eat savory provender, which has been winnowed with the shovel and with the fork.
