Cor [N]

This Hebrew word, untranslated, denotes a round vessel used as a measure both for liquids and solids. It was equal to one homer, and contained ten ephahs in dry and ten baths in liquid measure ( Ezekiel 45:14 ). The Rabbins estimated the cor at forty-five gallons, while Josephus estimated it at about eighty-seven. In 1 Kings 4:22 ; 5:11 ; 2 Chr 2:10 ; 27:5 , the original word is rendered "measure."
