[ הִין noun masculine Leviticus 19:36 hin, a liquid measure (ᵐ5 εἴν (Ἴν; ᵐ5 L Ἴν); but χοῦς Leviticus 19:36; Greek ἴυιον, Egyptian measure, = sextarius, accusative to Böckh Metrol. Unters. 244 compare Brandis Münz- Mass- & Gewichtswesen 29,30; the Hebrew hin (6.06 litres) was, however, much larger than the Egyptian hin (0.456 litre), see Hultsch Metrol., Tab. xxi. p. 714, & pp. 368,450 ff.; see further Ri HWB Smith Dict.Bib. EMey Geschichte. i. 228) — absolute הִין Exodus 30:24 4t. Ezekiel 45:46; הַהִין Exodus 29:40 (twice in verse) + 14t.; construct הִין Leviticus 19:36; —

1 a measure, used of quantity of water for drinking Ezekiel 4:11; usually in connection with offerings:

a. of oil used with meal-offering Exodus 29:40; Numbers 15:4,6,9; Numbers 28:5 (all P), Ezekiel 45:24; Ezekiel 46:5,6,11,14; — usually 1/4hin to 1/10 ephah (of meal-offering); Numbers 15:6 1/3; Numbers 15:9 1/2; in Ezekiel a (whole) hin, except Ezekiel 46:14 3-Janhin to 1/6. ephah.

b. used in mixing the anointing oil Exodus 30:24.

c. of wine as drink-offering Leviticus 23:13 (H); elsewhere P, Exodus 29:40; Numbers 15:5; Numbers 28:14 (all 1/4hin) Numbers 15:7; Numbers 28:14 (both 1/3hin), Numbers 15:10; Numbers 28:14 (both 1/2hin; all with 1/10 to 3/10 ephah in case of meal-offering).

d. once ofשֵׁכָר as drink-offering Numbers 28:7 (P; 1/4hin; compare Di).

2 vessel with capacity of hin Leviticus 19:36 (H) הִיןצֶֿדֶק a just hin ("" ׳מאֹזְנֵי צ, ׳אַבְנֵיצֿ, ׳אֵיפַת צ). — The hin = 1/6 bath according to Joseph. Ant. iii. 8, 3; 9,4, = 6.06 litres (Hultsch l.c.), see II. בַּת. On order of words in above passages, note that הִין (׳רְבִיעִת ה etc.) is usually appositive of liquid measured, & either precedes it Exodus 29:40; Numbers 15:4; Numbers 28:14, or, more often, follows it Exodus 30:24 10t.; Numbers 28:7 they are in different clauses; in Exodus 29:40 we find בְּשֶׁמֶןרֶ֗֗֗בַע הַהִין, compare Numbers 15:6,9; Numbers 28:5; — Numbers 28:14 is peculiar: וְנִסְכֵּיהֶם חֲצִי הַהִין יִהְיֶה לַמָּר וּשְׁלִישִׁתהַהִין לָאַיִל וּרְבִיעִת הַהִין לַכֶּבֶשׂ יָ֑יִן (יין only at end).

Gesenius Definition

הִין m. a hin, a measure of liquids containing [“the seventh part of a Bath, i.e. twelve Roman sectarii”] 12 לֹנ, 2 Attic χόες (according to Joseph. Ant. iii. 9 § ). Numbers 15:4, sqq., 28:5, Numbers 28:7, 14 Numbers 15:14; Ezekiel 4:11. LXX. Εἴν, ἴν, ὗν. Its etymology is doubtful. It may be derived from הוּן as being a light, small measure. [This reason is rejected in Thes.] [“This corresponds to the Egyptian hn, hno, which signifies prop. vessel, and then a small measure, sectarius, Gr. ἵνιον. See Leemans, Lettre a Salvolini, p. 154. Bökh. Metrol. Untersuch. pp. 244, 260. But it is not certain that these Hebr. and Egypt. measures were of the same size.” Ges. add.]
