      • a 40:5 - Heb <i>shesh ammoth ba'ammah </i>traditionally <i>six long cubits</i>, which is defined as six times a standard <i>ammah </i>of eighteen inches plus a <i>topha </i>(traditionally <i>handbreadth</i>) of three inches. So the measuring rod has six segments of twenty-one inches each, which equals ten and a half feet. It is unclear whether the measurements with the rod continue past 40:8, when standard <i>ammah </i>appear, though the longer <i>ammah </i>do continue briefly in 43:13-17 for the altar.
