God is the LORD, who has shined on us; bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.
Binding his foal unto the vine and his ass's colt unto the choice roots; he washed his garments in wine and his covering in the blood of grapes;
saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied and a colt with her; loose them and bring them unto me.
and said unto them, Go to the place which is before you; and as soon as ye are entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, upon which no man ever sat; loose him and bring him.
saying, Go ye into the village over against you, in which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, upon whom no one has ever sat; loose him, and bring him here.
And they went and found the colt tied by the door outside between two ways, and they loosed him.
His maker shall take him by the weakness of his eyes in a snare, and pierce through his nose.
Canst thou draw out leviathan with a hook or with the cord which thou lettest down on his tongue?
1 Corinthians 9:9
For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treads out the grain. Does God take care for oxen?
1 Timothy 5:18
For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treads out the grain. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
Behold, we put bits (or restraint) in the horses' mouths to persuade them, and we govern their whole body.
Be ye not as the horse or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in subjection with bit and bridle, or they will not come near unto thee.
A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back.
For we all offend in many things. If any man offends not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to govern the whole body with restraint.
And his Spirit, as an overflowing stream, shall break even unto the neck to sift the Gentiles with the sieve of vanity and to put a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.
