* the wood offering.
It was the business of the Nethinim to procure the wood for
the fires of the temple: but it is probable few of them
returned to their former masters after the captivity; and
therefore they found it necessary to cast lots among the
priests, Levites, and people, who should furnish the wood at
appointed times. This bringing of the wood to the temple at
last became a great day; and was constituted into a feast,
called by Josephus, [Xylophoria,] "the carrying of the wood"
(Bell. 1. ii. c. 17. sec.6).
