Heifer

Additional Links

Heifer. 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, Deuteronomy 26:4, hence, the expression an "unbroken heifer," Hosea 4:16. Authorized Version, "backsliding" to which Israel is compared.
