4. Although it is forbidden to perform an act of Refu'ah on Shabbos, rubbing oil is not regarded as an act of Refu'ah because it is no different from drinking liquids.

10. He rebuked Shlomo, saying that his father David made many entrances in the walls of Yerushalayim to make it easier for the Olei Regel, whereas Shlomo closed them to facilitate counting the sojourners in order to collect taxes from them for the sake of Bas Pharaoh.
