When the worship of God in the Old Testament in the form of so-called public services was first instituted, it had a very simple form. We are told that in the time of Enos men began to call upon the name of the Lord, that is, to proclaim the name of the Lord Jehovah, Gen. 4, 26. This preaching or teaching was clearly a sacramental act, just as the bringing of sacrifices, as in the case of Abel, was a sacrificial act, very likely attended by prayer.
