  Earing 
  an  Old  English  word  (from  the  Latin  aro,  I  plough),  meaning 
  "ploughing."  It  is  used  in  the  Authorized  Version  in  Gen.  45:6; 
  Ex  34:21;  1  Sam.  8:12;  Deut.  21:4;  Isa.  30:24;  but  the  Revised 
  Version  has  rendered  the  original  in  these  places  by  the 
  ordinary  word  to  plough  or  till.
