'Handfuls' in the Bible
Then the LORD told Moses and Aaron, "Take handfuls of soot from a kiln, and let Moses throw it into the air in front of Pharaoh.
One other thing drop some handfuls deliberately, leaving them for her so she can gather it. And don't bother her."
Beh-hadad sent this message back: "May the gods do so to me, and more than that also, if the dust that remains of Samaria is enough to fill up a few handfuls for all of the armies at my disposal."
