Resource Toolbox

ē´fa ( איפה , 'ēphāh ): A dry measure of about one bushel capacity. It corresponds to the bath in liquid measure and was the standard for measuring grain and similar articles since it is classed with balances and weights (Leviticus 19:36 ; Amos 8:5 ) in the injunctions regarding just dealing in trade. In Zechariah 5:6-10 it is used for the utensil itself (see WEIGHTS AND MEASURES ).
