Yoke

  • Fitted on the neck of oxen for the purpose of binding to them the traces by which they might draw the plough, etc. (Numbers 19:2; Deuteronomy 21:3). It was a curved piece of wood called 'Ol .

  • In Jeremiah 27:2; 28:10,12the word in the Authorized Version rendered "yoke" is Motah , which properly means a "staff," or as in the Revised Version, "bar."

    These words in the Hebrew are both used figuratively of severe bondage, or affliction, or subjection (Leviticus 26:13; 1 Kings 12:4; Isaiah 47:6; Lamentations 1:14; 3:27). In the New Testament the word "yoke" is also used to denote servitude (Matthew 11:29,30; Acts 15:10; Galatians 5:1).

  • In 1Sam 1 Samuel 19:21, Job 1:3 the word thus translated is Tzemed , Which signifies a pair, two oxen yoked or coupled together, and hence in 1 Samuel 14:14 it represents as much land as a yoke of oxen could plough in a day, like the Latin Jugum . In Isaiah 5:10 this word in the plural is translated "acres."
