Question
Please give some understanding on the "covenant of salt"  Shalom Shalom 

Answer
Salt is a food that never spoils and G-d made a covenant with salt at creation that it would not spoil and last indefinitely.  The priestly tithes and the kingship of David is compared to the covenant of salt to show that they too are forever.

Also, salt is considered to be a product of underground waters and G-d made a covenant with those waters during creation that they will be used for sacrifices in the Temple in the form of salt.
