Cast: That is, says Bp. Lowth, “Sow thy seed or corn on the face of the waters;” in plain terms, sow without any hope of a harvest. Do good even to them on whom your benefactions seem thrown away. Dr. Jebb has well illustrated it by the following passages:
“Vain are the favours done to vicious men; Not vainer ’tis to sow the foaming deep. The deep no pleasant harvest shall afford, Nor will the wicked ever make return.
“To befriend the wicked is like sowing in the sea. These, indeed, invert this precept; Nor is it extraordinary that they should.
“The one, frail human power alone produced, The other, God.”
I Am blessed. Point blank. All that I ever needed has already been givien to me by my Dad in Heaven, Baruch Atah Hashem Adonai! This Blog is a myriad of my thoughts and life's experiences. This is posting freedom to me. The subjects vary and I like it that way.
