Apothecary, Raqach

Resource Toolbox

This term is not used in scripture in the modern sense of a compounder of drugs for medicine; but in that of a compounder of ointments, etc., such as would now be called a 'perfumer,' as it is rendered in the margin of Exodus 30:25 , where the holy anointing oil is an ointment compounded "after the art of the apothecary." The same was said of the holy incense. Exodus 30:35 ; Exodus 37:29 . Asa was buried in a tomb filled with sweet odours and spices prepared by the apothecaries' art. 2 Chronicles 16:14 : cf. also Nehemiah 3:8 . Spices were also carried to the tomb of the Lord to embalm His body.
