Bible Stories #18: A Very Big Bed

There was a king named Og. Og was a big man, the last of the giants, and he had a very big bed. Nine cubits long, and four cubits wide. According to the internet a cubit is equal to 1.6404199 feet. According to my calculations that would make Og’s bed approximately fourteen and a half feet by six and a half feet, over twice as long as a standard king sized bed.

The frame was made of solid iron. Which is interesting, because the iron age is generally recognized as the most advanced stage of ancient pre-history.
