What does Husbandman mean in the Bible?


Holman Bible Dictionary - Husbandman
KJV term for one who tills the soil; a farmer. Husbandry refers to farming. Modern translations replace husbandman and husbandry with other terms. The substitutions of the RSV are typical; plowman (Isaiah 61:5 ); farmer (2 Chronicles 26:10 ; Jeremiah 14:4 ; Jeremiah 31:24 ; Jeremiah 51:23 ; Amos 5:16 ); tiller of the soil (Genesis 9:20 ; Joel 1:11 ). The KJV's “ye are God's husbandry” was rendered with “you are God's field.” See Farmer ; Agriculture ; Occupations.
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Husbandman
One whose business it is to cultivate the ground. It was one of the first occupations, and was esteemed most honourable (Genesis 9:20 ; 26:12,14 ; 37:7 , etc.). All the Hebrews, except those engaged in religious services, were husbandmen. (See AGRICULTURE .)
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Husbandman, Husbandry
HUSBANDMAN, HUSBANDRY . In EV [1] the former is, in most cases, synonymous with ‘a tiller of the ground,’ which RV [2] has substituted for it in Zechariah 13:5 in modern English, a farmer. The first farmer mentioned in OT, therefore, is not Noah the ‘husbandman’ ( Genesis 9:20 ), but Cain the ‘tiller of the ground’ ( Genesis 4:2 ). In John 15:1 , however, the former has the more limited sense of vinedresser: ‘I am the true vine and my Father is the vinedresser’ (AV [3] and RV [2] ‘husbandman’). So, too, in the parable of the Vineyard ( Matthew 21:33 ff.).
‘Husbandry,’ in the same way, is tillage, farming. Thus of king Uzziah it is said that ‘he loved husbandry’ (lit. ‘the land’ in the modern sense, 2 Chronicles 26:10 ), that is, as the context shows, he loved and fostered agriculture, including viticulture. In 1 Corinthians 3:9 ‘husbandry’ is used by metonymy of the land tilled (cf. RVm [5] ): ‘ye are God’s field’ (Weymouth, The NT in Modern Speech ).

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Husbandman
A title given to Jehovah in His relationship with Israel. He had planted Israel as a vine on the earth, and He looked for fruit; but, alas, it produced only wild grapes. Isaiah 5:1-7 . He then planted the true Vine on the earth which in every way gave much fruit. John 15:1 . In another metaphor, Jehovah let out a vineyard to Israel, and prepared it for fruit-bearing; but when He sent for the fruit, His servants were ill-treated and killed. Last of all He sent His Son, but Him they killed also. God has destroyed those husbandmen, and has let out His vineyard unto the Gentiles: Matthew 21:33-41 : cf. Romans 11:21 .
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Husbandman
HUSBANDMAN (γεωργός).—Jesus knew well the life of the fields. His keen eye for illustrations fell readily on the most fundamental of occupations; one universal since the primeval days when simple patriarchs began to be husbandmen, and princes digged at the up-springing well (‘which the nobles of the people delved, with the scepter and with their staves,’ Numbers 21:18 Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885). Agriculture, in Israel’s best days, had been the chief employment, and still from out the scattered villages men were to be seen at work upon the croft like patches. As sure token of happy and successful labours, the plain was verdant with the growing grain, the vines hung graceful from the terraced slope. The human mind never fails to be arrested in religious mood by the mystic forces of nature; and in the case of the Jews there was this added discipline, that Scripture, read statedly in their hearing, teemed with references to the tilling of the soil. Ready to the lips of Jesus, therefore, was an allusive speech which should prove powerful in appeal to educated and uneducated alike. The way into the popular sentiment was clear for Him. People were at least grounded in the elements of literary thought. On the principles and growth of the great Kingdom He could discourse profitably under the familiar images of seed-time and harvest, tree or plant culture in their gardens, or the on goings in their season of the workers in the vineyard on the hill.
What probably commended this line of teaching to Jesus, however, was the fact that husbandry suggests, in singular fashion, the co-ordination of man’s activity with God’s. Without, on the one hand, what is graciously supplied to us—soil and seed, rain and sunshine—man’s labour could be of no avail; yet, on the other hand, without that labour well directed, mankind would perish. The lesson is writ large in cultivated fields that faith and hope, zeal and patience, have a reward assured which comes immediate from the hand of God. Further, this rural imagery of Jesus met the fact that the minds hearing Him were not all equally ready to see the truth in His light. For such persons, pictures from the outer and familiar realm stored up material for self-culture in the future. And nothing better certifies the supreme instinct of the Master than this, that the thousand revelations of the natural science of to-day illustrate only the more those spiritual principles and universal laws of the unseen which He was wont to enforce by reference to phenomena around Him as He spoke.
The slighter glances recorded of Jesus in this realm are fairly numerous. Compare the references to plants and trees (Matthew 7:16-20; Matthew 12:33, Luke 6:43-45), the putting of the hand to the plough (Luke 9:62), the application of salt to the land (Matthew 5:13, Luke 14:35), the ox fallen into the pit (Luke 14:5), the action of the airs of heaven (Luke 12:55, John 3:8), the glowing or beelouded sky (Matthew 16:2-3, Luke 12:54), the buyer gone to survey his piece of ground (Luke 14:18), or busy testing his new teams (Luke 14:19), the deeply-suggestive corn of wheat (John 12:24), the sifting of the same (Luke 22:31), the tenant counting up his measures (Luke 16:7), labourers needed for the plenteous harvest (Matthew 9:37-38, Luke 10:2), the growing whiteness of the crops (John 4:35), the fated twain of field workers (Matthew 24:40, Luke 17:36), and the beautiful picture of the fig-tree at the approach of summer putting forth leaves upon its tender branch (Matthew 24:32, Luke 21:29).
But chiefly in the exquisite parables do we see that power of observation in the material world which makes Jesus so engaging as a child of nature, who lived much, and lived free, in the open air of Palestine. As we move with Him by the highways and the hedges, we descry in one field the servant ploughing or feeding cattle (Luke 17:7), in another the well-remembered spot where gleams of joy lit up the rustic’s eyes who happed upon hid treasure (Matthew 13:44). Here we have the corn-lands green with the sprouting of the tiny blade (Mark 4:26-29), tangled betimes with the tares (Matthew 13:25); there the rocky and the thorn-choked patches (Mark 4:5-7); and over all the hovering birds (Mark 4:4), ready to devour the precious seed. We see the labourers standing in the market-place for hire (Matthew 20:3), the prosperous farmer critical about his barns (Luke 12:18), the shepherd searching the grassy plateau for his sheep (Matthew 18:12). Men are working in the clumps of vines (Matthew 21:28), from which the wine-press peeps (Mark 12:1), and where the watch-tower stands upon its bolder coign (Mark 12:1). See the garden where the tall mustard grows (Luke 13:19), and yonder the forlorn fig-tree (Luke 13:6) threatened with the axe. The whole world of nature, the varied scenes of toil, are laid amply under contribution, made the emblems and the witness of the highest things of the Spirit. (See art. Vine (Allegory of) for discourse upon the Vine and the Branches, John 15:1-8, where the Father is the Husbandman; cf. also art. Agriculture).
One parable must be specially noted—the story of the Wicked Husbandmen (Matthew 21:33-43, Mark 12:1-9, Luke 20:9 ff.), which is an incisive review of God’s relations with His people. Endless pains had been taken (Mark 12:1) with the vineyard of the Kingdom, yet when messenger after messenger came seeking fruit in the Divine name, they had been sent empty away, and contumeliously treated—one beaten, another wounded, a third killed (Mark 12:2-5). Nowhere does Jesus put Himself more clearly in line with the prophets. As the gloomy night is gathering fast around His own head, He feels full affinity of fate with them. In the passage He carries, indeed, the history of Israel’s shameful conduct not only to the days of the Baptist, but even a little beyond the moment of utterance. We have insight into the marvellous composure of the heart of Jesus as He pictures His own case in the person of the one son, well beloved, who was cast out, bruised and bleeding, his body soon to be cold in death upon the highway (Mark 12:8). Thus, in tragic fashion, He broadens the charge against His opponents, with their complacent jealousy (Mark 12:7), by proving their conduct to be of a piece with Israel’s cruel treatment of speakers for God in the past. The note of severity and moral indignation is unmistakable, but it is blended with one of wistful sadness. Not that His own approaching death troubles Him; He fears not as He enters into the cloud, and is ready to give His life as covenant blood for the setting up of the Kingdom. But His countrymen’s wayward folly, and the terrible crisis at hand for the Jewish State, weigh heavy on His spirit. Their doom, He concludes, is written with God’s own finger on the wall, for those who had the eyes to see: ‘He will come, and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others’ (Mark 12:9).

the Labourer With the Evil Eye - And to begin with, let us look well at this unheard-of Husbandman. For the like of this Husbandman has never been seen before nor since in Galilee, nor in Jewry, nor in Samaria, nor anywhere else. This singular Husbandman plants and reaps his vineyard less for the sake of his vines, than for the sake of his vinedressers. This so altruistic Husbandman, as we would call him, occupies his vineyard not at all for his own advantage, but for the sole advantage of his labourers. Indeed, and to let out the whole truth at once, this Husbandman is a perfect portrait of God the Father, drawn by the skilful and loving hand of God the Son. My Father is the Husbandman, says our Lord in another parable. For no other Husbandman in all the world ever went out at all hours of the day to hire his labourers, and at the same wages. No other Husbandman could afford to pay for one hour's work in the evening of the day as much as he pays for the burden and heat of the whole day. No; this Husbandman's portrait is no pure invention of our Lord's sanctified genius, as some of His other portraits are. Whereas this Husbandman is the speaking likeness of Heavenly Love. My Father is the Husbandman. O young people, if you would only believe it! If we could only put our old hearts into your young bosoms! How fast you would fall in with the Husbandman's earliest offer! And what a life of blows, and starvation, and all kinds of cruel usage, would you thus escape! Satisfy our children, O Lord, early with Thy mercy, that they may rejoice and be glad in Thee all their days. ...
But of all the hours of this Husbandman's labourer-hiring days it is His eleventh hour that comes most home to my own heart. Since God takes the bitterest dregs of our sinful lives, and, like this Husbandman, pays so altruistically for them, we come. ...

Laborer, Fellow Laborer - 1: ἐργάτης (Strong's #2040 — Noun Masculine — ergates — er-gat'-ace ) akin to ergazomai, "to work," and ergon, "work," denotes (a) "a field laborer, a Husbandman," Matthew 9:37,38 ; 20:1,2,8 ; Luke 10:2 (twice); James 5:4 ; (b) "a workman, laborer," in a general sense, Matthew 10:10 ; Luke 10:7 ; Acts 19:25 ; 1 Timothy 5:18 ; it is used (c) of false apostles and evil teachers, 2 Corinthians 11:13 ; Philippians 3:2 ; (d) of a servant of Christ, 2 Timothy 2:15 ; (e) of evildoers, Luke 13:27
Rain - The whole period from October to March now constitutes only one continued season of rain, without any regularly intervening term of prolonged fine weather, unless, therefore, there has been some change in the climate the early and the latter rains, for which the Husbandman waited with longing, seem rather to have implied the first showers of autumn—which revived the parched and thirsty soil and prepared it for the seed—and the later showers of spring, which continued to refresh and forward both the ripening crops and the vernal products of the fields
Plough - With such an imperfect instrument, the Syrian Husbandman can do little more than scratch the surface of his field, or clear away the stones or weeds that encumber it, and prevent the seed from reaching the soil. The plough used in Syria is so light and simple in its construction, that the Husbandman is under the necessity of guiding it with great care, bending over it, and loading it with his own weight, else the share would glide along the surface without making any incision
the Man Which Sowed Good Seed in His Field But His Enemy Came And Sowed Tares Among the Wheat - When, meeting the Husbandman, He said to him, "From whence hath thy field these tares?" "An enemy hath done it," said the heart-broken Husbandman. That enemy envied with all his wicked heart the Husbandman's well-ploughed, well-weeded, well-sowed, and well-harvested, field, till he said within himself, Surely the darkness shall cover me. And when our Lord looked on the wheat-field all destroyed with tares, He took that field, and that Husbandman's faith and patience with his field, and put them both into this immortal sermon of His. And here are we tonight learning many much-needed lessons among our tare-sowed fields also: learning the very same faith and patience that so impressed and pleased our Lord in this sorely-tried Husbandman. And at the end of the world, when he is told about us, as we have been told about him, that Husbandman will say, It was well worth a thousand fields of wheat to be the means of teaching a little patience and a little long-suffering even to one over-anxious and impatient heart. For, what that Husbandman knew not about his field when he bore himself so wisely beside it, he will know when the harvest is the end of the world, and when the reapers are the angels. Occasions will arise, and may be at the door, when we must be prepared, both by knowledge and by temper, to play our part in them like this Husbandman in his field. Occasions and opportunities when the discretion, and the patience, and the long-faith of this wise-hearted Husbandman, will be memorable and will be set before us for our imitation and our repetition. For, even when the wheat-field was all covered with real, and not doubtful, tares, the wise Husbandman still held in the hands of his indignant and devoted servants. Only, may you and I be judged more tenderly and forgivingly by Him on that day than we have many a time judged other erring men!...
The whole field of letters, also, is more or less like this Husbandman's tare-tangled field. We must act like this wise Husbandman; we must take our history, and our biography, and our politics, and our art, and our law, and our criticism, and our morning and evening and weekly newspapers, as they are-tares and all. It is like those poisonous weeds in his best fields that so vex the Husbandman's heart. Let him plough and harrow, and plough and harrow again; let him change his seed, let him rotate his crops; with all he can do, there is the accursed thing always coming up, choking the wheat, drinking up the rain and the sunshine from the wheat, and mocking all that the Husbandman and his servants can do; mortifying and indeed breaking his heart. Behold, the Husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth
Rain - Unless therefore, there has been some change in the climate, the early and the latter rains, for which the Husbandman waited with longing, seem rather to hare implied the first showers of autumn--which revived the parched and thirsty soil and prepared it for the seed --and the later showers of spring, which continued to refresh and forward both the ripening crops and the vernal products of the fields
Fitches - In Ezekiel 4:9 kussemeth , KJV "fitches," is rather "spelt" or dhourra , less suitably rendered "rye" Exodus 9:32; Isaiah 28:25, where the illustration from the Husbandman shows that God also adapts His measures to the varying exigencies of the several cases and places, now mercy, now judgment, here punishing sooner there later (an answer to the scoff that His judgments were so slow that they would never come at all, Isaiah 5:19); His aim not being to destroy His people any more than the Husbandman's aim in threshing is to destroy his crop
Branch - "An abominable branch," a useless sucker cut away by the Husbandman; else the tree's branch on which a malefactor was hung, and which was buried with him

Vine, Allegory of the - It presents to us the picture of a vine tended by a Husbandman who takes away the unfruitful branches and cleanses the fruitful, i. ...
In the interpretation Christ Himself is the vine (‘the true vine’ is the phrase used, of which we shall discuss the significance presently); His Father is the Husbandman, believers, especially the disciples, are the branches. The Heavenly Husbandman severs the connexion between them and Christ (John 15:2 a). Weiss believes he can find the original elements in John 15:2; John 15:4; John 15:6, and thinks that it had taught that, as the Husbandman does all in his power to make the vine productive, but if his efforts are in vain casts forth the worthless branches and burns them up, so God’s purpose in the planting of the Kingdom of God in Israel had been to increase the fruitfulness of its members, and if that purpose is not fulfilled the only result will be the exclusion of Israel from the Kingdom
Locust - In whatever country they settle, they devour all the vegetables, grain, and, in fine, all the produce of the earth; eating the very bark off the trees; thus destroying at once the hopes of the Husbandman, and all the labours of agriculture: for though their voracity is great, yet they contaminate a much greater quantity than they devour; as their bite is poisonous to vegetables, and the marks of devastation may be traced for several succeeding seasons

Growing - It is enough; the conception is carried through from one Testament to the other, and its teaching is consecrated, its consolation is secured in and through Him whom the great Evangelical prophet (Isaiah 11:1) prefigured as the very symbol of growing: ‘There shall come forth a shoot out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots shall bear fruit,’ That fruit is still seen in every plant planted by the Divine Husbandman (Matthew 15:13)
Agriculture - The lightness of husbandry work in the plains set them free for watering the soil, and terracing the hills by low stone walls across their face, one above another, arresting the soil washed down by the rams, and affording a series of levels for the Husbandman
