Bible Measurements

This page offers conversions from biblical weights and measurements into modern measurements.  Some Bible translations already do this, some offer a conversion as a footnote, and some use the old unconverted words.  Using this page you can find out approximately what the Biblical author intended when they wrote a measurement.

All measurements are modern day approximations and should not be taken as exact conversions.  For instance, a quart and a liter are nearly the same amount but they are not exact.  The greater amount, the more the conversion suffers.  A meter and a yard are similar but 100 meters is over 108 yards.
