Kiss

Of affection (Genesis 27:26,27; 29:13; Luke 7:38,45); reconciliation (Genesis 33:4; 2Sam 14:33); leave-taking (Genesis 31:28,55; Ruth 1:14; 2Sam 19:39); homage (Psalms 2:12; 1 Samuel 10:1); spoken of as between parents and children (Genesis 27:26; 31:28,55; 48:10; 50:1; Exodus 18:7; Ruth 1:9,14); between male relatives (Genesis 29:13; 33:4; 45:15). It accompanied social worship as a symbol of brotherly love (Romans 16:16; 1 Corinthians 16:20; 2co 13:12; 1 Thessalonians 5:26; 1 Peter 5:14). The worship of idols was by kissing the image or the hand toward the image (1 Kings 19:18; Hosea 13:2).
