How shall the one who grasps a plough become wise, and who boasts in the shaft of a goad, who drives oxen and engages in their work, and their discourse is among the sons of bulls?
Who ever serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat the fruit of it? Who shepherds a flock and does not drink from the milk of the flock?
The farmer who works hard must be the first to receive a share of the crops.
