Ploughman (אַכָּר, ikkdr, Isa 61:5, which signifies not only a ploughman, but a husbandman in general). Among the Hebrews, the rich and the noble, it is true, in the cultivation of the soil did not always put themselves on a level with their servants; but none, however rich or noble or prophetically favored, disdained to put their hand to the plough, or otherwise to join occasionally in the labors of agriculture (1Sa 11:7; 1Ki 19:19; comp. 2Ch 26:10). SEE AGRICULTURE.
