Ezekiel 4:11

Ezekiel 4:11

Thou shall drink also water by measure
Not wine, but water; and this not as much as he would, but a certain measure; which shows great want of it, and expresses a very distressed condition see ( Lamentations 5:4 ) ; the sixth part of an hin;
a hin held twelve logs, or seventy two egg shells, or about three quarts of our measure; and the sixth part of one were two logs, or twelve egg shells, and about a pint of our measure; so that it was but a pint of water a day that the prophet was allowed, as a token of the great scarcity of it in the siege of Jerusalem: from time to time shalt thou drink:
as before.
