Could Genesis 21:14 say "...and he (Abraham) gave to Hagar there the yoke of her shoulder (her shoulder yoke?) and the boy..." ?
I saw on the internet that people used to carry heavy things on wood shoulder yokes, so maybe Hagar used one to carry her things when she was sent away by Abraham. I don't know if any translator ever translated it this way, or if it can actually say this or not.
