—Greek Word Study (Transliteration-Pronunciation Etymology & Grammar)

 1) a yoke
   1a) a yoke that is put on draught cattle
   1b) metaph., used of any burden or bondage
       1b1) as that of slavery
       1b2) of troublesome laws imposed on one, esp. of the Mosaic
            law, hence the name is so transferred to the commands of
            Christ as to contrast them with the commands of the
            Pharisees which were a veritable 'yoke'; yet even Christ's
            commands must be submitted to, though easier to be kept
 2) a balance, pair of scales

—Thayer's (New Testament Greek-English Lexicon)

From the root of ζεύγνυμι [[zeugnumi]] (to join, especially by a "yoke"); a coupling, that is, (figuratively) servitude (a law or obligation); also (literally) the beam of the balance (as connecting the scales):—pair of balances, yoke.
