The Old Testament of the Bible (KJV) references collecting tears in a bottle in Psalm 56:8 when David prays to God, “Thou tellest my wanderings, put thou my tears in Thy bottle; are they not in Thy Book?” The reference predates the birth of Christ by over 1000 years. Tear bottles were fairly common in Roman times, around the time of Christ, when mourners filled small glass bottles or cups with tears and placed them in burial tombs as symbols of respect.
