Treasury of Scripture

Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.

Exodus 16:16,32,33
This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his tents…









(36) Now an omer.--The "omer" and the "ephah" were both of them Egyptian measures. One--the latter--continued in use among the Hebrews, at any rate, until the captivity (Ezekiel 45, 46); the other--the omer--fell out of use very early. Hence this parenthetic verse, which is exegetical of the word "omer," and may have been added by the completer of Deuteronomy, or by some later editor--perhaps Ezra.

Verse 36. - An omer. The "omer" must be distinguished from the "homer" of later times. It was an Egyptian measure, as also was the" ephah." It is not improbable that the verse is an addition by a later writer, as Joshua, or Ezra.
