Easton's Bible Dictionary
Plough

First referred to in Genesis 45:6, where the Authorized Version has "earing," but the Revised Version "ploughing;" next in Exodus 34:21 and Deuteronomy 21:4. The plough was originally drawn by oxen, but sometimes also by asses and by men. (See AGRICULTURE.)


Smith's Bible Dictionary
Plough

The ploughs of ancient Egypt consisted of a share-often pointed with iron or bronze

two handles and a pole which was inserted into the base of the two handles. Ploughs in Palestine have usually but one handle with a pole joined to it near the ground and drawn by oxen, cows or camels.
