THE VALUE OF OIL

The Bible contains scores of references to oil. A study of these passages reveals that oil was used in ancient days for some of the same purposes for which we now use it. From early times it was used for anointing. The books of Exodus and Leviticus include instructions for the anointing of the priests.

Later we read of the anointing of Saul, David, and Solomon, the first kings of the Israelites. Undoubtedly all their subsequent kings received the same rite. This custom has persisted in the coronation of royalty down to the present time.
