We find that in the Old Testament scripture, the earring was a token and pledge of overtures to marriage. Thus Abraham's servant's first present, in his master's name, to Rebekah, was a golden earring. (Genesis 24:22) And hence Laban, her brother's, invitation, in consequence thereof. (Genesis 24:30-31) In allusion to this, we find the Lord Jesus speaking of his church, "I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head." (Ezekiel 16:12) And certain it is, that when the Lord Jesus is going forth in the graces of his Holy Spirit, to make his people willing in the day of his power; he doth all this and infinitely more. Yea, all the persons of the GODHEAD give of their golden blessings, the most precious jewels. "We will make thee borders of gold, with studs of silver." (Song of Song of Solomon 1:11)
