30:23 He will water the seed you plant in the ground,
and the ground will produce crops in abundance. 1
At that time 2 your cattle will graze in wide pastures.
will eat seasoned feed winnowed with a shovel and pitchfork. 4
32:20 you will be blessed,
you who plant seed by all the banks of the streams, 5
you who let your ox and donkey graze. 6
1 tn Heb “and he will give rain for your seed which you plant in the ground, and food [will be] the produce of the ground, and it will be rich and abundant.”
2 tn Or “in that day” (KJV).
3 tn Heb “the oxen and the donkeys that work the ground.”
4 sn Crops will be so abundant that even the work animals will eat well.
5 tn Heb “by all the waters.”
6 tn Heb “who set free the foot of the ox and donkey”; NIV “letting your cattle and donkeys range free.”
sn This verse seems to anticipate a time when fertile land is available to cultivate and crops are so abundant that the farm animals can be allowed to graze freely.
