how blessed you will be, sowing your seed by every stream, and letting your cattle and donkeys range free.
How blessed will you be, you who sow beside all waters, Who let out freely the ox and the donkey.
God will greatly bless his people. Wherever they plant seed, bountiful crops will spring up. Their flocks and herds will graze in green pastures.
But you will enjoy a blessed life, planting well-watered fields and gardens, with your farm animals grazing freely.
Happy are you who are planting seed by all the waters, and sending out the ox and the ass.
Happy will you be who sow beside every stream, who let the ox and the donkey range freely.
Blessed are you who sow beside all waters, Who send out freely the feet of the ox and the donkey.

1 tn Heb “by all the waters.”
2 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.
