Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 25:4


25:4 He treadeth out the corn - Which they did in those parts, either immediately by their hoofs on by drawing carts or other instruments over the corn. Hereby God taught them humanity, even to their beasts that served them, and much more to their servants or other men who laboured for them, especially to their ministers, #1Cor 9:9|.
