“You shall have just balances, a just ephah and a just bath.
Hear this, you who trample the needy, to do away with the humble of the land,
“Is there yet a man in the wicked house,
Along with treasures of wickedness
And a short measure that is cursed?
‘You shall do no wrong in judgment, in measurement of weight, or capacity.
A false balance is an abomination to the Lord,
But a just weight is His delight.
A just balance and scales belong to the Lord;
All the weights of the bag are His concern.
You shall have a full and just weight; you shall have a full and just measure, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you.
Differing weights and differing measures,
Both of them are abominable to the Lord.
To do righteousness and justice
Is desired by the Lord more than sacrifice.
“For ten acres of vineyard will yield only one bath of wine,
And a homer of seed will yield but an ephah of grain.”
