A narrow trench cut in the earth by a plow (1 Samuel 14:14 ; Job 31:38 ; Job 39:10 ; Psalm 65:10 ; Psalm 129:3 ; Hosea 10:4 ; Hosea 12:11 ). The KJV rendered two Hebrew terms as furrow which are best translated otherwise. At Ezekiel 17:7 ,Ezekiel 17:7,17:10 modern translations opt for bed (NAS, RSV), plot (NIV), or garden (TEV). At Hosea 10:10 modern translations understand a reference to two sins (iniquity, NRSV; guilt, NAS; sin, NIV, TEV; shameful deed, REB).
