KJV Translation Count — Total: 6x
The KJV translates Strong's G2218 in the following manner: yoke (5x), pair of balances (1x).
  1. a yoke

    1. a yoke that is put on draught cattle

    2. metaph., used of any burden or bondage

      1. as that of slavery

      2. 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

Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ζυγός zygós, dzoo-gos'; from the root of ζεύγνυμι zeúgnymi (to join, especially by a "yoke"); a coupling, i.e. (figuratively) servitude (a law or obligation); also (literally) the beam of the balance (as connecting the scales):—pair of balances, yoke.
STRONGS NT 2218: ζυγός
ζυγός, ζυγοῦ, , for which in Greek writings before Polybius τό ζυγόν was more common (from ζεύγνυμι);
1. a yoke;
a. properly, such as is put on draught-cattle.
b. metaphorically, used of any burden or bondage: as that of slavery, 1 Timothy 6:1 (Leviticus 26:13), δουλείας, Galatians 5:1 (Sophocles Aj. 944; δουλοσυνης, Demosthenes 322, 12); of troublesome laws imposed on one, especially of the Mosaic law, Acts 15:10; Galatians 5:1; 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: Matthew 11:29f (less aptly in Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 16, 17 [ET] Christians are called οἱ ὑπό τόν ζυγόν τῆς χάριτος ἐλθόντες (cf. Harnack at the passage)).
2. a balance, pair of scales: Revelation 6:5 (as in Isaiah 40:12; Leviticus 19:36; Plato, rep. 8, 550 e.; Aelian v. h. 10, 6; others).
