Oil lamp and oil filler from the King David First Temple period.
These are two excellent pieces used in daily household use in ancient Israel during the King David period and the Israelite monarchy. This set includes a distinctive open Iron Age period oil lamp, and an Iron Age black juglet. This is used for refilling oil lamps. Both pieces are in excellent condition.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Psalm 119:105)
At this time when the book of psalms was written the Israelites use to put the lamp on their feet. This in order to keep the hands ready to fight while holding the Sword and a shield while they are entering caves.
Discovered in the Shiloh area South Of Shechem north of Jerusalem. Tel Shiloh is a place of significant beginnings for the Jewish People. Even without grand palaces or powerful walls, it is one of the most dramatic sites in the country.
There in the territory of the tribe of Ephraim, the children of Israel brought the Tabernacle (Josh. 18:1). This made Shiloh a religious center for the Israelites even before Jerusalem.
The path to the mound has a beautiful view of the valley. This is where one of the most colorful stories in the Bible took place. The summer grape-harvest festival when the daughters of Shiloh came out dancing and the men of Benjamin sought brides from among them (Judges 21:15-23).
King David period set makes a very unique and excellent investment.
