(Heb. nataf ) the name of one of the sweet spices which composed the holy incense. See ( Exodus 30:34 ) --the only passage of Scripture in which the word occurs. Some identify the nataf with the gum of the storer tree (Styraz officinale ), but all that is positively known is that it signifies an odorous distillation from some plant.
