Heifer


Heifer. 1 Sam. 6:7-12; Job 21:10; Isa. 7:21. The heifer or young cow was not commonly used for ploughing, but only for treading out the corn. Hos. 10:11; but see Judges 14:18, when it ran about without any headstall, Deut. 25:4; hence the expression an “unbroken heifer,” Hosea 4:16; Authorized Version “backsliding,” to which Israel is compared.
