Beaten Oil

BEATEN OIL is the standard tr. of the Heb. phrase שֶׁ֤מֶן כָּתִית, consisting of the common noun for oil, shemen and another noun derived from the same root as the verb kaṯaṯ. It appears in Exodus 27:20 (RSV); 29:40; Leviticus 24:2; Numbers 28:5; and 1 Kings 5:11. The term prob. refers to olive oil obtained from the first pressing, the best quality, before the addition of water needed to extract the lower grades. See Olive, Olive Tree.
