Just ephah.—The ephah is the dry measure, and contained ten omers. (See Lev. 14:10.) It is the same measure as the bath is for liquids.
A just hin.—The hin, which was a measure for liquids, contained as much as seventy-two hen’s eggs. These two measures are here used as representative, including all other measures.
