§ 223. The Anointing of Kings.

WHEN we hear of the anointing of the Jewish kings, we are to understand by it the same, as their inauguration; in as much as anointing was the principal ceremony on such an occasion, 2 Sam. 2: 4. 5: 3. As far as we are informed, however, Unction, as a sign of investiture with the royal authority, was bestowed only upon the two first kings, who ruled the Hebrews, viz. Saul and David; and, subsequently, upon Solomon and Joash, who ascended the throne under such circumstances, that there was danger of their right to the succession being forcibly disputed, 1 Sam. 10; 24. 2 Sam. 2:4. 5:1–3. 1 Chron. 11: 1, 2.2 Kgs. 11: 12–20. 2 Chron. 23: 1–21. That the ceremony of regal anointing should be repeated in every instance of succession to the throne, was not to be expected from the fact, that the unction, which the first one, who held the sceptre in any particular line of princes, had received, was suppos to suffice for the succeeding incumbents in the same descent. In the kingdom of Israel, those, who were inducted into the royal office, appear to have been inaugurated with some additional ceremonies, 2 Kgs. 9:13. The private anointings, which we learn to have been performed by the prophets, (2 Kgs. 9:3, comp. 1 Sam. 10:1 16:1–13,) were only prophetick symbols or intimations, that the persons, who were thus anointed, should eventually receive the kingdom. Without the consent, however, of the rulers of the nation, (of the publick, legislative assembly,) they communicated no legal right to the crown; no more than the prophecies of dissentions and civil wars gave a right to attempt perpetrations of that kind, 1 Kgs. 11; 29–40. 12:20. 2 Kgs. 8: 11–14. The ceremonies, mentioned in the Bible, which were customary at the inauguration of kings, were as follows,
