The Book of Exodus records that an ephah was equal to ten omers. In contemporary units, an ephah is approximately equivalent to 23 liters. It matches the bath in terms of liquid measurement, as mentioned in Ezekiel 45:11, and served as the benchmark for quantifying grain and similar commodities. This is evidenced by its association with scales and measures in directives for equitable commerce found in Leviticus 19:36 and Amos 8:5. In Zechariah 5:6 - 5:10, the term specifically refers to the vessel itself.
