Ma'neh (מָנֶה, maneh', Eze 45:12, a portion as divided by weight; hence the Greek μνᾶ, a mina; rendered "pound" in 1Ki 10:17; Ezr 2:69; Ne 7:21-22), a weight of a hundred shekels, as we gather from 1Ki 10:17 (compare 2Ch 9:16). Another and somewhat obscure specification is given in Eze 45:12, "twenty shekels, five and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh;" spoken either of a triple maneh of twenty, twenty-five, and fifty shekels; or of a single maneh of sixty shekels, distributed into three parts of fifteen, twenty, and twenty-five. There are other explanations offered (as by the Chaldee paraphrast, by Jarchi, J. D. Michaelis, and others), but the latter is generally supposed to be the best. SEE WEIGHTS.
