Ezekiel 45:9-11 New Century Version (NCV)

“‘This is what the Lord God says: You have gone far enough, you rulers of Israel! Stop being cruel and hurting people, and do what is right and fair. Stop forcing my people out of their homes, says the Lord God. 10 You must have honest scales, an honest dry measurement and an honest liquid measurement. 11 The dry measure and the liquid measure will be the same: The liquid measure will always be a tenth of a homer,[a] and the ephah will always be a tenth of a homer. The measurement they follow will be the homer.


  1. 45:11 homer The Hebrew word means “donkey-load.” It measured about five dry bushels or one hundred seventy-five liquid quarts. So an ephah was about one-half bushel, and a bath was about eighteen quarts.
