Measuring Reed

MEASURING REED [ISBE]

MEASURING REED - (qeneh hamiddah; kalamos): Used in Ezek 40:5 ff; 42:16; 45:1; Rev 11:1; 21:15,16. The length of the reed is given as 6 cubits, each cubit being a cubit and a palm, i.e. the large cubit of 7 palms, or about 10 ft. See CUBIT. Originally it was an actual reed used for measurements of considerable length, but came at last to be used for a measure of definite length, as indicated by the reference in Ezkiel (compare "pole" in English measures).
