{Genesis 26:12} Then Isaac 3327 sowed 2232 z8799 in that x1931 land, 776 and received 4672 z8799 in the same x1931 year 8141 an hundredfold: 3967 8180 and the LORD 3068 blessed 1288 z8762 him.
The author of the "History of the Piratical States of Barbary" observes (p. 44), that the Moors of that country are divided into tribes like the Arabians, and like them dwell in tents, formed into itinerant villages; that "these wanderers farm lands of the inhabitants of the towns, sow and cultivate them, paying their rent with the produce, such as fruits, corn, wax, etc. They are very skilful in choosing the most advantageous soils for every season, and very careful to avoid the Turkish troops, the violence of the one little suiting the simplicity of the other." It is natural to suppose, that Isaac possessed the like sagacity, when he sowed in the land of Gerar, and received that year an hundred-fold.
