10 (A)“You shall have just balances, a just ephah, and a just bath.[a] 11 The ephah and the bath shall be (B)of the same measure, (C)the bath containing one tenth of a homer,[b] and the ephah one tenth of a homer; the homer shall be the standard measure. 12 (D)The shekel shall be twenty gerahs;[c] twenty shekels plus twenty-five shekels plus fifteen shekels shall be your mina.[d]

13 (E)“This is the offering that you shall make: one sixth of an ephah from each homer of wheat, and one sixth of an ephah from each homer of barley, 14 and as the fixed portion of oil, measured in baths, one tenth of a bath from each cor[e] (the cor, like the homer, contains (F)ten baths).[f] 15 And one sheep from every flock of two hundred, from the watering places of Israel for grain offering, burnt offering, and peace offerings, (G)to make atonement for them, declares the Lord God. 16 All the people of the land shall be obliged to give this offering to the prince in Israel.
