Frankincense was one of the consecrated incenses (ha-ketoret) described in the Hebrew Bible and Talmud used in ketoret ceremonies, an important component of the services in the Temple in Jerusalem.

 

It was offered on a specialized incense altar in the time when the Tabernacle was located in the First and Second Temples. It is mentioned in the Book of Exodus 30:34, where it is named לבונה (levona; Biblical Hebrew: lebonah), similar to לבן‎, lavan, 'white'. It was one of the ingredients in the perfume of the sanctuary (Exodus 30:34), and was used as an accompaniment of the meal-offering (Leviticus 2:1, 2:16, 6:15, 24:7).

 

It was also mentioned as a commodity in trade from Sheba(Isaiah 60:6 ; Jeremiah 6:20). When burnt it emitted a fragrant odor, and the incense was a symbol of the Divine name (Malachi 1:11 ; Song of Solomon 1:3) and an emblem of prayer (Psalm 141:2). It was often associated with myrrh (Song of Solomon 3:6, 4:6). A specially "pure" kind, lebhonah zakkah, was presented with the showbread (Leviticus 24:7).
