Genesis 27:40 (b) Here we find a type of the position of servitude. The yoke on the neck indicates subjection to another. The yoke broken from the neck indicates deliverance from the condition of servitude. (See Deuteronomy 28:48; Jeremiah 28:10; Jeremiah 30:8; Acts 15:10).

2 Chronicles 36:13 (b) In this passage, as in many others, the stiff neck, or the hard neck, represents a rebellious spirit which refuses to bow to the will of GOD. It is equivalent to the expression we use about the horse, who "takes the bit in his teeth." The horse refuses to be guided by the driver. So there are those who refuse to be guided by the Lord, either in their faith or in their practices. (See also Psalm 75:5; Isaiah 48:4; Jeremiah 17:23).

Proverbs 29:1 (a) That person who refuses to listen to GOD's Word, and rejects the guidance of the Spirit will be surely punished by GOD.
