Laws Governing the Prince

Thus says the Lord God: Let it suffice you officials of Israel. Remove violence and destruction, and execute justice and righteousness. Take away your exactions from My people, says the Lord God. 10 You shall have just balances and a just ephah[a] and a just bath.[b] 11 The ephah and the bath shall be of one measure so that the bath may contain the tenth part of a homer,[c] and the ephah the tenth part of a homer. Their measure shall be after the homer.
