Sometimes biblical passages refer to measurements we just don’t use much, if ever, today. For example, in Genesis 6:15 the Lord instructed Noah to make the ark 300 cubits long. I don’t know about you but I don’t ever refer to cubits in my normal conversations. So how long was the ark to be?
The answer to the question is very easy to discover with the new Logos 6 Interactive Resource called Weights and Measures Converter.
- Choose Tools | Weights and Measures Converter
- Type in the Convert box the number of units to convert followed by the name of the unit of measurement such as 300 cubits (A)
- Select the desired item from the drop down list (B)
- Notice Logos displays various equivalents in words (C)
Since, however, a picture is worth a 1000 words, notice this resource also portrays the equivalent in pictures! (D)
300 cubits are the equivalent of:
- 12 city buses
- 10 humpback whales
- 7 semi trucks
- 3 757 airplanes
Pretty cool, eh!!
