Exodus 27: There I shall cause pride to sprout for David; I have prepared a lamp for my anointed. (Psalms 132:16); A mans soul is the lamp of God, which searches the chambers of ones innards. (Proverbs 20:27). A lamp is called a lamp, and the soul of man is called a lamp. (Babylonian Talmud, Shabbat 30B) Lamps appear in the Bible as lighting the way for the righteous, the wise, and for love and other positive values. While fire was described in the Bible as being destructive, light was given a positive spiritual meaning. The oil lamp and its light were important household items in Biblical times, and this may explain their use and connotations in the Bible. Oil lamps were used for many spiritual rituals. They were buried with the dead to comfort the soul and to light the way to the hereafter. They lit the interior of dark tombs. Lamps were used to honor the memory of the deceased as well as acting against evil spirits. The oil lamp and its light also became important ritualistic articles with the further development of Jewish culture and its religion.
