Oil for the light
For the light of the lamps in the candlestick: this was oil olive, as the Targum of Jonathan, and so Jarchi, see ( Exodus 27:20 ) ,
spices for anointing oil;
for the anointing of Aaron and his sons, and the tabernacle and its vessels, such as pure myrrh, sweet cinnamon, sweet calamus, and cassia:
and for sweet incense;
as stacte, onycha, and galbanum; from whence they had this oil and these spices, it is not easy to say, unless they brought them out of Egypt with them; which is likely, since the deserts of Arabia could not furnish them with them.
