This word, which occurs in the Authorized Version (), is very often supposed to mean 'collecting the ears of corn,' which would confound it with harvest, from which it is distinguished in this very passage. But the word is radically the same with harrow, and denotes plowing, from the Anglo-Saxon erian, 'to plow.'
