27 For the
fitches [qetsach] are not threshed [duwsh]
with a threshing instrument [charuwts], neither

the cummin [kammon]; but the fitches [qetsach] are beaten out [chabat]
with a staff [matteh], and the cummin [kammon] with a rod [shebet]. KJV-Interlinear
27 Dill is
not threshed with a threshing sledge, nor is a cart wheel rolled over cumin, but
dill is beaten out with a stick, and cumin with a rod. ESV
