Smith's Bible Dictionary

a Roman measure of length, equal to 1618 English yards --4854 feet, or about nine-tenths of an English mile. It is only once noticed in the Bible, (Matthew 5:41) the usual method of reckoning both in the New Testament and in Josephus being by the stadium. The mile of the Jews is said to have been of two kinds, long or short, dependent on the length of the pace, which varied in different parts, the long pace being double the length of the short one.

ATS Bible Dictionary

The word mile, in Matthew 5:41, is spoken of the Roman milliare, or mile, which contained eight stadia, 1,000 paces, that is, about 1,614 yards, while the English mile contains 1,760 yards.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

mil (milion, Latin mille passus, milia passuum): A thousand paces, equal to 1,618 English yards. (Matthew 5:41).


Easton's Bible Dictionary
(from Lat. mille, "a thousand;" Matthew 5:41), a Roman measure of 1,000 paces of 5 feet each. Thus the Roman mile has 1618 yards, being 142 yards shorter than the English mile.
