Notes on Chapter 6





(a) "giants" = Strongs #5303 "nehiypl", from #5307 "naphal" = "to fall" therefore, a "feller", i.e. a bully or a tyrant.
Return to Verse 4












(a) "cubits" = Strongs #520 "ammah"
"A mother" (or unit) of measure, or the fore-arm, below the elbow.
The cubit is commonly thought to equal 18 inches. If that is correct, the dimension of the ark would be:
length - 300 cubits = 450 feet
breadth - 50 cubits = 75 feet
height - thirty cubits = 45 feet
