Deuteronomy 25:4
Treasury of Scripture

You shall not muzzle the ox when he treads out the corn.

shalt not In Judea, as well as in Egypt, Greece, and Italy, they made use of beeves to tread out the corn; and the same mode of threshing still obtains in Arabia, Barbary, and other eastern countries, to the present day. The sheaves lie open and expanded on the threshing floors, and the cattle continually move round them, and thus tread out the grain. The natives of Aleppo still religiously observe the ancient humane practice, inculcated by this law, of permitting the oxen to remain unmuzzled when treading out the corn.


Proverbs 12:10 A righteous man regards the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.

1 Corinthians 9:9,10 For it is written in the law of Moses, You shall not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treads out the corn. Does God take care for oxen...

1 Timothy 5:17,18 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially they who labor in the word and doctrine...
