Thus saith the Lord God, Let it [a]suffice you, O princes of Israel: leave off cruelty and oppression, and execute judgment and justice: take away your exactions from my people, saith the Lord God.

10 Ye shall have just balances, and a true [b]Ephah, and a true Bath.

11 The Ephah and the Bath shall be equal: a Bath shall contain the tenth part of an Homer, and an Ephah the tenth part of an Homer: the equality thereof shall be after the Homer.
