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 (Ezek. 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."
