The use of the bath was very frequent among the Hebrews (Leviticus 14:8 ; Numbers 19:19 , ect.). The high priest at his inauguration (Leviticus 8:6 ), and on the day of atonement, was required to bathe himself (16:4,24). The "pools" mentioned in Neh Nehemiah 20:20 , Isaiah 22:11 , John 9:7 , were public bathing-places.
