 It was bad land fruitful only in thorns and thistles, instead of a good return for the rain drunk in from above. Only grace in an evil world makes the ground good to bring forth herbs or fruit meet for those for whose sake also it is tilled. The Spirit uses the word to deal with the ungodly, plows up the soul, as well as sows the incorruptible seed of the word of God which lives and abides. This is a wholly different thing from seeing the beauty and reasonableness of "the plan of salvation," and still more the unanswerable proofs from evidence, from which people may and do fall away on pressure. (Hebrews 6:4-8 by W. Kelly)

ground [or, land]: It is not "the earth" as a whole as in A.V., nor yet as in R.V. "the land," etc., as that particular one objectively viewed, but characteristically "land"; for here English idiom as often coincides with Greek. (Exp. of Heb., p.108)
ground [or, land]: it is ground, or land, not "the" land. (Bible Treasury 14:46)
ground [or, land]: was it not worth their [The American correctors of the RV] notice that, it is "land," not "the" land? (Bible Treasury 15:31)
