    Definitions for 1 Samuel 16:3

    Anoint - To rub in; rub on.

    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Samuel 16:3

    Call Jesse to the sacrifice - The common custom was, after the blood of the victim had been poured out to God, and the fat burnt, to feast on the flesh of the sacrifice. This appears to have been the case in all, except in the whole burnt-offering; this was entirely consumed.
