For the land into which you are entering, to inherit it, is not like the land of Egypt from which you are coming, that you sow your seed and water it with your feet like a vegetable garden. The land into which you are crossing to inherit is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water of the rain of the heavens.

— Deuteronomy 11:10-12
