  adj  :  not  easily  borne;  wearing;  "the  burdensome  task  of  preparing 
  the  income  tax  return";  "my  duties  weren't  onerous;  I

  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
  (Luke  2:2;  R.V.,  "enrolment"),  "when  Cyrenius  was  governor  of 
  Syria,"  is  simply  a  census  of  the  people,  or  an  enrolment  of 
  them  with  a  view  to  their  taxation.  The  decree  for  the  enrolment 
  was  the  occasion  of  Joseph  and  Mary's  going  up  to  Bethlehem.  It 
  has  been  argued  by  some  that  Cyrenius  (q.v.)  was  governor  of 
  Cilicia  and  Syria  both  at  the  time  of  our  Lord's  birth  and  some 
  years  afterwards.  This  decree  for  the  taxing  referred  to  the 
  whole  Roman  world,  and  not  to  Judea  alone.  (See  {CENSUS}.)
