Furrow

Furrow [EBD]

an opening in the ground made by the plough (Ps. 65:10; Hos. 10:4, 10).

Fury - as attributed to God, is a figurative expression for dispensing afflictive judgments (Lev. 26:28; Job 20:23; Isa. 63:3; Jer. 4:4; Ezek. 5:13; Dan. 9:16; Zech. 8:2).

FURROW [ISBE]

FURROW - fur'-o (telem): The word is translated "furrows" in Job 39:10; 31:38; Ps 65:10; Hos 10:4; 12:11 (Ps 65:10 the King James Version, "ridges"). In these passages the fields are pictured as they were in the springtime or late autumn. When the showers had softened the earth, the seed was sown and the soil turned over with the plow and left in furrows, not harrowed and pulverized as in our modern farming. The Syrian farmer today follows the custom of his ancient predecessors.

Another word, ma`anah, occurs in two passages, first in the figurative sense in Ps 129:3, and second in an obscure passage in 1 Sam 14:14. Three other words, gedhudhah, `arughah, `ayin, translated "furrows" in the King James Version, are probably more properly rendered in the American Standard Revised Version "ridges" (Ps 65:10), "beds" (Ezek 17:7,10), and "transgressions" (Hos 10:10).

See AGRICULTURE; PLOW.
