met (madhadh): "To measure," either with a utensil of dry measure, as in Exodus 16:18, or to measure with a line or measure of length, as in Psalm 60:6; Psalm 108:7 Isaiah 40:12. In Isaiah 18:2, 7 it is the rendering of qaw qaw, literally, "line-line" i.e. measuring line, referring to the Ethiopians as a nation that measured off other peoples for destruction and trod them down, as in the Revised Version (British and American). It is regarded by some as signifying strength, being cognate with the Arabic kawi, "strong." For mete of Matthew 7:2 and parallel passages in Mark 4:24 Luke 6:38, see MEASURE.
