Jacob experienced his famous dream while stay­ing at Luz, an almond grove in Canaan (Genesis 28:11–19).

Because the most important gods lived inside cedar trees, the trees were asked if they could be used in the construction of tem­ples. It was especially important to have cedar doors, as the tree was a door to the divine and the door to a temple also symbolized the entrance to the divine. King Solomon’s temple contained a large amount of cedar, including the ceiling (1 Kings 6:15). King David’s house was built entirely from cedar (2 Samuel 7:2). The cedars of Lebanon are mentioned several times in the Bible (Judges 9:1 5; Psalms 92:12, 104:16, 148:9; Solomon 5:15; Isaiah 2:13; Ezekiel 17:3).
