Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
"When you cultivate the ground, it will no longer yield its strength to you; you will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth."

King James Bible
When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
If you work the ground, it will never again give you its yield. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth."
