Oil: Only olive oil seems to have been used among the Hebrews. It was used for many purposes:

1. for anointing the body or the hair (Exodus 29:7; 2 Samuel 14:2; Psalms 23:5; 92:10)

(Psalms 104:15; Luke 7:46)

2. in some of the offerings (Exodus 29:40; Leviticus 7:12; Numbers 6:15; 15:4)

3. but was excluded from the sin-offering (Leviticus 5:11) and the jealousy-offering (Numbers 5:15)

4. for burning in lamps (Exodus 25:6; 27:20; Matthew 25:3)

5. for medicinal purposes (Isaiah 1:6; Luke 10:34; James 5:14)

6. for anointing the dead (Matthew 26:12; Luke 23:56)

It was one of the most valuable products of the country (Deuteronomy 32:13) (Ezekiel 16:13) and formed an article of extensive commerce with Tyre (Ezekiel 27:17) The use of it was a sign of gladness (Psalms 92:10; Isaiah 61:3) and its omission a token of sorrow (2 Samuel 14:2; Matthew 6:17) It was very abundant in Galilee.
