For the land where you are going in to possess it is not like the land of Egypt that you came out from, where you sowed your seed and watered it with your foot like a garden of herbs; Bible see other translations

“watered it with your foot.” This seems to be a reference to a way that water was drawn up out of the Nile River by means of a treadmill-like machine that lifted the water out of the river and dumped it into trenches on the ground that carried the water out into the fields.
