* wash your feet.
In those ancient times, shoes such as ours, were not in use;
and the foot was protected only with sandals or soles,
fastened round the foot with straps. It was, therefore, not
only necessary from motives of cleanliness, but also a very
great refreshment, in so hot a country, to get the feet washed
at the end of a day's journey; and this is the first thing
that Abraham proposes.

Rest in the shade was the second requisite for the refreshment
of a weary traveller.
