Measure. Hebrew, "both. " Thirty. Hebrew, "a chomer shall yield an epha."

John Chrysostom

AD 407
There are many instances in which the land suffers because of people’s sins. Why are you surprised if the people’s sin makes the land infertile and unfruitful when we caused it to be corrupt in the first place (and will again make it incorruptible)?… See Noah, for example. When humanity had become utterly perverse, turmoil ensued everywhere. Everything—the seed, the plants, all types of animals, the land, the sea, the air, the mountains, the valleys, the hills, the cities, the ramparts, the houses and the towers—everything was covered by the flood. When the time came for humanity to be replenished, the land was restored to the order and beauty it had before. It is clear that the land was restored in part as an honor to humanity. - "Commentary on Isaiah 5.4"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
