Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 5:10

_ _ acres — literally, “yokes”; as much as one yoke of oxen could plow in a day.

_ _ one — only.

_ _ bath — of wine; seven and a half gallons.

_ _ homer ... ephah — Eight bushels of seed would yield only three pecks of produce (Ezekiel 45:11). The ephah and bath, one-tenth of an homer.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 5:8-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 5:10

One bath — Of wine. The bath contained about eight gallons. Thus an acre did not yield one gallon. An ephah — Which was of the same quantity with the bath, only the bath was the measure of liquid things, the ephah of dry things; and a ephah was the tenth part of an homer. So instead of the increase which that fruitful land commonly yielded, they should loose nine parts of their seed.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 5:10

Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one (m) bath, and the seed of an (n) homer shall yield an (o) ephah.

(m) Which contains about 5 gallons, so that every acre would yield only half a gallon.

(n) Which contains 50 gallons.

(o) An ephah contains 5 gallons and is in dry things as much as a bath is in liquids.
