Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

סְאָה plur. סְאִים f.

(1)  measure. With this meaning, following Aqu. Symm. Theod. Chald. Syr. I explain the difficult word בְּסַאסְּאָה Isaiah 27:8 contr. from בִּסְאָה־סְּאָה (with Dag. fort. conjunctive; like מַלָּכֶם for מַה־לָּכֶם), to measure (and) measure (ie nach dem Maaße), i.e. moderately; comp. בְּמִשְׁפָּט Jeremiah 10:24 and לַמִּשְׁפָּט Jeremiah 30:11, 46:28. Less suitable is the explanation lately proposed, viz. that בְּסַאסְּאָה is for בְּזַעְזְעָהּ (root זוּעַ), by moving, terrifying her.

(2) specially a certain particular measure of corn; according to the Rabbins, the third part of an Ephah (אֵיפָה); according to Jerome on Matthew 13:33, sesquimodius, Genesis 18:6; 1 Samuel 25:18. Dual. סָאתַיִם for סְאָתַיִם 2 Kings 7:1, 16 2 Kings 7:16 in the Syrian manner contr.; like מְאָתָיִם, מָאתַיִם. From the Aramean form ܣܰܙܬܐܳ has arisen Gr. σάτον, which is used by the LXX., the writers of the New Test., and Josephus.
