'Tillage' in the Bible
And over them that did the work of the field for tillage of the ground was Ezri the son of Chelub:
And that we should bring the firstfruits of our dough, and our offerings, and the fruit of all manner of trees, of wine and of oil, unto the priests, to the chambers of the house of our God; and the tithes of our ground unto the Levites, that the same Levites might have the tithes in all the cities of our tillage.
Much food is in the tillage of the poor: but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment.
Loftiness of eyes, and breadth of heart, Tillage of the wicked is sin.
For thus said Jehovah, To the man of Judah, and to Jerusalem: Till for yourselves tillage, And do not sow unto the thorns.
Sow for yourselves in righteousness, Reap according to loving-kindness, Till for yourselves tillage of knowledge, To seek Jehovah, Till he come and shew righteousness to you.
for of God we are fellow-workmen; God's tillage, God's building ye are.
