ISRAEL SYSTEM OF MEASURES AND WEIGHTS
|חומר homer - material, clay; Heap.||400 l||~180 kg|
We divide the system of measures into two components: the measure of the goods sold and the measure of silver for the payment of this commodity. Today, the system of measures and weights of goods is very precise. Money, with which we value this product, is not tied to anything. We experienced the inflation of the ruble's fall more than 1000 times. God did the opposite, He preferred some flexibility to leave the goods, and unshakable to make a financial system to protect against inflation. God's system is wiser and far-sighted. It resembles a spring, which has only a slight flexibility and this makes it the most reliable part of the machine. It does not bend under any pressure and does not crack at every sharp jerk. Num 11:32 And the people arose, and all that day, and all night, and all the next day, they gathered quails; And who collected a little, he gathered 10 homers.. 10 homers=1800 kg=10 donkey load, a person could bring it for 70 (!) Times.
The number 10 means a lot. In this case, when we understand the numbers, they speak for themselves. Hos 31:2 And I bought it myself for 15 silversmiths and for 1.5 homer of barley. 1.5 homer - somewhere 270 kg of barley or 5.5 bags (50 kg each).
|כר kor - kor, (fat sheep, saddle).||400 l||~180 kg|
At a rate of 450 grams of flour per day per person, 30 cows will feed 12,000.
|סאה sea - bread measure.||13.3 l||~6 kg|
In other words, Sata is not small, but a large measure and it is measured not in the kitchen, but on a wholesale base. Abraham, on the other hand, ordered to measure flour not with glasses, but with buckets (satami).
omerday's rations of manna in the desert
|עמר omer - omer, sheaf.||4 l||~1.8 kg|
Exo 16:18 And they measured with omer... In the desert people used only manna and consumed it on the omer per day. Sata was enough for three. But a man eats not only bread. For example, the daily ration of the Roman army was 850 g of wheat, lard and salt, sometimes meat and vegetables. So, what did Abraham attend to? If he gave them only bread, then they would have sat and quite enough. Abraham gave them three. In addition, he served oil, milk and calf on the table. The hungriest three people and one day would not eat all this. In other words, "the table was bursting with food." And there was something to give them on the road. The fact is that, like them, Abraham himself was an alien in this land, like them. But the Canaanite land met him with hunger, and he was forced to seek shelter in a neighboring country. Abraham knew what it meant to be in the shoes of these people. And now he was pleased to give them what he dreamed of at that time. Mt 13:33 The woman kneaded 3 measures of flour (in the original "satya") 1 sat is the amount of flour for a family for a week. 3 sati is about 18 kg. Where do they knead so much? The usual dishes are too small for this, someone uses a trough for such matters. That is, in the parable it is said about the maximum possible to present for the hostess the amount of flour, and about the leaven, a negligible amount of the same test, only sank.
That is, let Monchegorsk be large, but few burning believers are able to do so that "everything is leavened".
