I was reading along today and stopped on one word – “Maneh.” What is a “Maneh?”
Ezekiel 45:12, “And the shekel shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels and twenty-five shekels and fifteen shekels shall be your maneh.”
“The standard weights were lost when the Chaldeans destroyed the temple. The threefold enumeration of shekels, twenty, twenty-five, fifteen, probably refers to coins of different value, representing respectively so many shekels, the three collectively making up a maneh. By weighing these together against the maneh, afforded whether they severally had their proper weight…” Critical and Explanatory Commentary, Vol. I
Many standards this country was built on have been lost. The Bible is our modern day “Maneh.” We weigh everything against the word of God.
