Genesis 35:8 (c) Deborah, the nurse, was buried under an oak tree, and from this we notice that usually the oak tree is a type of the bitterness of sorrow because of death. Notice that in Joshua 24:26 that great leader made a covenant with the people under an oak tree, and then died as we read in Joshua 24:29. Notice also that the prophet sat under an oak tree in1Ki 13:14, and immediately thereafter he died, as recorded in1Ki 13:24. Absalom was caught by his head in an oak tree, 2 Samuel 18:9. Saul and his sons were buried under an oak tree, 1 Chronicles 10:12. In Zechariah 11:2 the oaks are said to howl because of death. This verse was used as a text at the funeral of Mr. Spurgeon.
