[Meaning] plough!
Greek Original:
*new/sate: a)rotria/sate.
The headword is the aorist imperative, second person plural, of neo/w, a verb which in classical Greek means to "renovate", but in the Koine was conflated with nea/w "to plough". Same or similar entry elsewhere (references at Photius nu166 Theodoridis), and the imperative itself is extracted from the Septuagint (Jeremiah 4:3).
