Definition
an aromatic gum resin obtained from various Arabian or East African trees; formerly valued for worship and for embalming and fumigation
  • Now, therefore, I say battle with your pride and beat it; cherish not your anger for ever; the might and majesty of heaven are more than ours, but even heaven may be appeased; and if a man has sinned he prays the gods, and reconciles them to himself by his piteous cries and by frankincense, with drink-offerings and the savour of burnt sacrifice.
