A symbol of subjection and servitude, 1 Kings 12:4 ; an iron yoke, of severe oppression, Deuteronomy 28:48 . The ceremonial law was a yoke, a burden-some restriction, Acts 15:10 Galatians 5:1 . The withdrawing or breaking of a yoke denoted a temporary or an unlimited emancipation form bondage, Isaiah 58:6 Jeremiah 2:20 , and sometimes the disowning of rightful authority, Jeremiah 5:5 . The iron yoke imposed by our sins, none but God can remove, Lamentations 1:14 ; but the yoke of Christ's service is easy and light, Matthew 11:29,30 .
