Oil for the Temple, Part 2
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Judah excused himself to oversee the harvest. He assigned servants to see to the guests' needs and hurried with David to the top of the hill.
 
2     The two of them inspected the olive press. He made sure that all of the previously pressed fruit had been cleansed from the stone and the press. Rancid bits of olive would contaminate the new oil. He could not allow that to happen. The oil for the temple must be the very best.
 
3     Judah remembered seeing the former high priest at this press when his father ran it. The man had stood and watched as the oil ran from the crushed fruit. As each jar had been filled, it was closed up and sealed with the high priest's seal. That way he could certify that it was the purest oil.
 
4     Judah explained to David what they were doing and why they were doing it. Someday David would inherit the olive grove from him. He would need to know why they did what they did.
 
5     Once the press was as clean as possible, they checked the olive oil jars. He wondered; would they have enough?
