Covenant of Salt

Additional Links
Salt was often utilized in covenant making probably as symbolic of that which preserves and prevents decay. The hope was that the covenant thus enacted would endure (Numbers 18:19; 2 Chronicles 13:5 ). Salt was an essential element of the cereal offerings made to God (Leviticus 2:13 ).
