What does the Bible present as the object of signing or sealing a document?

Answer

"Now, 0 king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed." Dan. 6: 8.
NOTE - That is, affix the signature of royalty, that it may have the proper authority, and thus be of
force. Anciently it was customary for kings to use a ring, containing their name, initials, or monogram, for
this purpose. Jezebel, the wife of Ahab, "wrote letters in Ahab's name, and sealed them with his seal." i
Kings 21: 8. Of the decree issued under Ahasuerus for the slaying of all the Jews throughout the Persian
Empire, it is said that "in the name of King Ahasuerus was it written, and sealed with the king's ring."
Esther 3:12.
