Mark 11:2 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Whereon never man sat - No animal was allowed to be employed in sacred uses, even among the heathen, that had previously been used for any domestic or agricultural purpose; and those which had never been yoked were considered as sacred.

Met. lib. iii. v. 10

Behold among the fields a lonely cow,
Unworn with yokes, unbroken to the plough.
