Weights and Measures
Whilst it is good to have the modern versions translate the Biblical weights and measures into their contemporary equivalent, so that we can have some idea of the background, some of the typical teaching is lost in so doing. In typology the meaning is in the number of units used in the original text, so it is important to retain the literal translation if we are to learn from them. Below we will commence to put in the Biblical measures together with their equivalents, as far as they can be agreed by scholars! Note both the imperial and the metric equivalents are given.
