Biblical

Israelites initially followed Babylonian system of units, but the units were later altered. There were royal and common versions of units and each of these forms had heavy and light versions. Gradually the system reformed again under the Egyptian influence. For example a shekel (silver coin) could weigh anything between 8 and 16 grams in various places and periods of history. That's why it is impossible get an exact conversion from biblical units to contemporary ones.
gram to talent
gram to mina
gram to shekel
gram to pim
gram to beka
gram to gerah
Units: talent  / mina  / shekel  / pim  / beka  / gerah

Does convert-me.com really exist since 1996? In fact it's even older. We launched the first version of our online units converter in 1995. There was no JavaScript there and all conversions had to be done on server. The service was slow. A year later the technology allowed us to create an instant units conversion service that became the prototype of what you see now.
