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.
