"You shall not muzzle the ox while he is threshing.

King James Bible
Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
Do not muzzle an ox while it treads out grain."
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

shalt not 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.
