(מָנֶה, maneh', Ezekiel 45:12, a portion as divided by weight; hence the Greek μνᾶ, a mina; rendered "pound" in 1 Kings 10:17; Ezra 2:69; Nehemiah 7:21-22), a weight of a hundred shekels, as we gather from 1 Kings 10:17 (compare 2 Chronicles 9:16). Another and somewhat obscure specification is given in Ezekiel 45:12, "twenty shekels, five and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh;" spoken either of a triple maneh of twenty, twenty-five, and fifty shekels; or of a single maneh of sixty shekels, distributed into three parts of fifteen, twenty, and twenty-five. There are other explanations offered (as by the Chaldee paraphrast, by Jarchi, J. D. Michaelis, and others), but the latter is generally supposed to be the best. (See WEIGHTS).
