(בּת , bath ): A liquid measure equal to about 9 gallons, English measure. It seems to have been regarded as a standard for liquid measures (Ezekiel 45:10 ), as in the case of the molten sea and the lavers in Solomon's temple (1 Kings 7:26 , 1 Kings 7:38 ), and for measuring oil and wine (2 Chronicles 2:10 ; Ezra 7:22 ; Isaiah 5:10 ; Ezekiel 45:14 ). Its relation to the homer is given in Ezekiel 45:11 , Ezekiel 45:14 ). See WEIGHTS AND MEASURES .
