Were much used by the ancient Hebrews, not chiefly for medical purposes as among us, but as a luxury, Ruth 3:3 Psalm 104:15 Song of Song of Solomon 1:2 Matthew 6:17 Luke 7:46 . Their perfumery was usually prepared in olive oil, and not in volatile extracts and essences. The sacred ointment is described in Exodus 30:22-33 . The ointments of the rich were made of very costly ingredients, and their fragrance was highly extolled, Isaiah 39:2 Amos 6:6 Matthew 26:7-9 John 12:5 . See ANOINTING .
