An act of respect between man and man, very common in the East, as Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land when he bought a burying place for his dead. Genesis 23:7,12 . Also an act of reverence to God, Psalm 95:6; but strictly forbidden to be done before an idol or image, Exodus 20:5; and treated as an act of worship.
