the Week of Proper 21 / Ordinary 26
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
Figurative : "Thou shalt thresh the mountains," i.e. thou wilt overcome great difficulties ( Isaiah 41:15 ). Babylon's destruction was foretold poetically in the language of the threshing-floor (Isaiah 21:10; Jeremiah 51:33; Daniel 2:35 ); Zion's foes would be gathered as sheaves on the threshing-floor (Micah 4:12 , Micah 4:13; compare 2 Kings 13:7; Amos 1:3; Habakkuk 3:12 ); threshing unto the vintage, i.e. throughout the summer, indicated an extra abundant yield (Leviticus 26:5 ).
