Linear Measures

  • 1 fingerbreadth = 1/4 handbreath = 1.85cm = 0.72in
  • 1 handbreath = 4 fingerbreaths = 7.4cm = 2.9in
  • 1 span = 3 handbreaths = 22.2cm = 8.75in
  • 1 cubit = 2 spans = 44.5cm = 17.5in
  • 1 long cubit = 7 handbreaths = 51.8cm = 20.4in
  • 1 reed = 6 cubits = 2.67cm = 8.75ft
  • 1 long reed = 6 long cubits = 3.11m = 10.2ft
  • 1 fathom = 1.8m = 6 ft

Liquid Measures

  • 1 log = 1/4 cab = 0.31L = 0.66pt (U.S.)
  • 1 cab = 4 logs = 1.22L = 2.58pt (U.S.)
  • 1 hin = 3 cabs = 3.67L = 7.75pt (U.S.)
  • 1 bath = 6 hins = 22L = 5.81gal (U.S.)
  • 1 cor = 10 baths = 220L = 58.1gal (U.S.)

Dry Measures

  • 1 cab = 4 logs = 1.22L = 2.2 dry pt (U.S.)
  • 1 omer = 1 4/5 cabs = 2.2L = 2 dry qt (U.S.)
  • 1 seah = 3 1/3 omers = 7.33L = 7.33L = 6.66 dray qt (U.S.)
  • 1 ephah = 3 seahs = 22L = 20 dry qt (U.S.)
  • 1 homer (cor) = 10 ephahs = 220L = 200 dry qt (U.S.)
