“So I bought her to me for fifteen pieces of silver, and for an homer of barley, and an half homer of barley:”
King James Version (KJV)
3:2 Fifteen pieces of silver - It was half the value of a slave, #Exod 21:32|. An homer of barley - About fourteen bushels. Of barley - The meanest kind of provision; and suited to a low condition, all this is, to set forth Israel's indigence and ingratitude, and God's bounty to Israel.
