And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen
To plough the field with,
and I go to prove them:
this also being at, or near evening, was an unsuitable time to go into the field with yokes of oxen to try them, how they would draw the plough, and work in the field; the morning would have been a much more proper time:
I pray thee have me excused;
to the master of the feast: this man represents also the carnal and worldly Jews, who preferred temporal things before spiritual.
