'Tread' in the Bible
How happy you are, Israel!Who is like you,a people saved by the Lord?He is the shield that protects you,the sword you boast in.Your enemies will cringe before you,and you will tread on their backs.
They crush olives in their presses;they tread the winepresses, but go thirsty.
You will tread on the lion and the cobra;you will trample the young lion and the serpent.
I will break Assyria in My land;I will tread him down on My mountain.Then his yoke will be taken from them,and his burden will be removed from their shoulders.
“As for you, you are to prophesy all these things to them, and say to them:The Lord roars from heaven;He raises His voice from His holy dwelling.He roars loudly over His grazing land;He calls out with a shout, like those who tread grapes,against all the inhabitants of the earth.
Joy and celebration are taken from the fertile fieldand from the land of Moab.I have stopped the flow of wine from the winepresses;no one will tread with shouts of joy.The shouting is not a shout of joy.
You will sow but not reap;you will press olivesbut not anoint yourself with oil;and you will tread grapesbut not drink the wine.
Draw water for the siege;strengthen your fortresses.Step into the clay and tread the mortar;take hold of the brick-mold!
