Isaiah 28  23 Listen and hear my voice;        pay attention and hear what I say.  24 When a farmer ploughs for planting, does he plough continually?        Does he keep on breaking up and harrowing the soil?  25 When he has levelled the surface,        does he not sow caraway and scatter cummin?        Does he not plant wheat in its place,        barley in its plot,        and spelt in its field?  26 His God instructs him        and teaches him the right way.  27 Caraway is not threshed with a sledge,        nor is a cartwheel rolled over cummin;        caraway is beaten out with a rod,        and cummin with a stick.  28 Grain must be ground to make bread;        so one does not go on threshing it forever.        Though he drives the wheels of his threshing cart over it,        his horses do not grind it.  29 All this also comes from the LORD Almighty,        wonderful in counsel and magnificent in wisdom.
