And they do not say in their heart,
‘Let us now fear Yahweh our God,
who gives the rain, both the former and the latter rain in its season,
who keeps for us the appointed weeks of the harvest.’ Bible other translations

“rain, both the former and the latter.” The latter rain is mentioned in Jeremiah 3:3. For information on the former and latter rain see commentary on James 5:7.

“who keeps for us the appointed weeks of the harvest.” God ensures that the seasons are regular and productive, so the time of harvest is predictable.
