(1 Samuel 6:7-12 ; Job 21:10 ; Isaiah 7:21 ) The heifer or young cow was not commonly used for ploughing, but only for treading out the corn. (Hosea 10:11 ) but see Judges 14:18 When it ran about without any headstall, (26:4) hence the expression an "unbroken heifer," ( Hosea 4:16 ) Authorized Version "backsliding" to which Israel is compared.
