1012) la (אל AL) AC: Yoke CO: Ox AB: Strength: The pictograph a is a picture of an ox head and also represents its strength. The l is a picture of a shepherd staff and also represents the authority of the shepherd. Combined these two pictographs mean "the strong authority" and can be anyone or thing of strong authority. The yoke is understood as a "staff on the shoulders" (see Isaiah 9:4) in order to harness their power for pulling loads such as a wagon or plow. Hence, the two pictographs can also represent "the ox in the yoke". Often two oxen were yoked together. An older, more experienced ox would be teamed up (yoked) with a younger, less experienced ox. The older ox in the yoke is the "strong authority" who, through the yoke, teaches the younger ox. (eng: all; elk; elephant)

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֵלוֹן m.

(1) a strong and hardy tree (from the root אוּל No. 2), specially the oak, as the ancient versions agree. Genesis 12:6, 13:18 14:13 18:1 Deuteronomy 11:30, etc. See my remarks in Thes. page 50, 51, in opposition to Celsius (Hierob. t. i. page 34, seq.), who regards אֵלוֹן as well as אֵלָה to be the terebinth. Sometimes particular oaks were called by particular names, as “the oak of Magicians,” Judges 9:37 pl. “the oaks of Mamre,” Genesis 13:18, 14:13 of Moreh, Deuteronomy 11:30.

(2) pr.n. m.- Genesis 46:14.
