O mountains of Gilboa,
let there be no dew nor rain on you, nor fields of offerings;
For there the shield of the mighty was defiled,
the shield of Saul, no longer anointed with oil. Bible other translations

“no longer anointed with oil.” Most shields had at least some leather, and that was rubbed with oil to keep it strong and flexible.


Commentary for: 2 Samuel 1:21
