This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

In the worship and service of God oil was used for divers things; as, about the lamps, Exo_35:14, and offerings, Lev_2:6,7, and for the anointing of sacred persons and things. Oil was also used in the constitution of kings, and priests, and prophets, and for a present to great persons, and to anoint the head and face, &c.

To be promoted, Heb. to move hither and thither, to wander to and fro, to exchange my sweet tranquillity for incessant cares and travels for the good of others, as a king ought to do.
