Bible Riddle: February 2002
In Palestine I abundantly grew;
All who lived there about me knew.
Both kings and paupers upon me fed;
Much about me in the Bible is said.
Some parts of me in the temple stood;
I am described as both wild and good.
My value to the land was of such fame
That even a mountain wore my name.
To this mountain came the Lord when he was distressed;
From my fruit fine oil was pressed.
I may even now in your home appear;
My name to you should be quite clear.
