Gift. The giving and receiving of presents has in all ages been, not only a more frequent, but also a more formal and significant proceeding in the East, than among ourselves. We cannot adduce a more remarkable proof of the important part which presents play in the social life of the East, than the fact that the Hebrew language possesses no less than fifteen different expressions for the one idea. The mode of presentation was with as much parade as possible. The refusal of a present was regarded as a high indignity. No less an insult was it not to bring a present, when the position of the parties demanded it. 1 Samuel 10:27.
