Ephah, a word of Egyptian origin, meaning measure; a grain measure containing "three seahs or ten omers," and equivalent to the bath for liquids ( Exodus 16:36 ; 1 Samuel 17:17 ; Zechariah 5:6 ). The double ephah in Proverbs 20:10 (marg., "an ephah and an ephah"), Deuteronomy 25:14 , means two ephahs, the one false and the other just.
