    Definitions for Exodus 29:40

    Hin - A liquid measurement.

    Clarke's Commentary on Exodus 29:40

    A tenth deal of flour - Deal signifies a part, from the Anglo-Saxon word, to divide; hence, a part, a portion taken from the whole. From Numbers 28:5 we learn that this tenth deal was the tenth part of an ephah, which constituted what is called an omer. See Exodus 16:36; and see Clarke's note on Exodus 16:16 of the same chapter, where an account is given of different measures of capacity among the Hebrews. The omer contained about three quarts English.

    The fourth part of a hin - The hin contained one gallon and two pints. The fourth part of this was about one quart and a half of a pint.

    Drink-offering - A libation poured out before the Lord. See its meaning, Leviticus 7:1, etc.

    Barnes' Notes on Exodus 29:40

    A tenth deal - i. e. the tenth part of an Ephah; it is sometimes called an Omer (Exodus 16:36; see Leviticus 23:13). The Ephah seems to have been rather less than four gallons and a half (see Leviticus 19:36 note); and the tenth deal of flour may have weighed about 3 lbs. 2oz.

    An hin - The word appears to be Egyptian. The measure was one-sixth of an ephah. The quarter of a bin was therefore about a pint and a half. See Leviticus 19:36 note.

    Beaten oil - See Exodus 27:20.

    Wine for a drink offering - The earliest mention of the drink-offering is found in connection with Jacob's setting up the stone at Bethel Genesis 35:14. But it is here first associated with the rites of the altar. The law of the drink-offering is stated Numbers 15:5 following. Nothing whatever is expressly said in the Old Testament regarding the mode in which the wine was treated: but it would seem probable, from the prohibition that it should not be poured upon the altar of incense Exodus 30:9, that it used to be poured on the altar of burnt-offering.

    Wesley's Notes on Exodus 29:40

    29:40 A tenth deal, or tenth part of an Ephah, is about three quarts. A hin is five quarts.
