 23:9  23:10
23:10 speak to the Israelites and say to them:

When you come to the land that I am going to give you, and you reap its harvest, you must bring an omer of your first reaping to the priest.
Daber el-beney Yisra'el ve'amarta alehem ki-tavo'u el-ha'arets asher ani noten lachem uktsartem et-ketsirah vahavetem et-omer reshit ketsirchem el-hakohen.




Commentary:

omer
  This is 1/10 ephah ( Exodus 16:36), the daily measure of manna, and the usual measure for a meal offering ( Leviticus 5:11, 6:13, Numbers 15:4, etc.). It is about 2 quarts. The omer offering consisted of barley (see Leviticus 2:14).
