'Weights' in the Bible
So Abraham listened to what Ephron said and acted upon it. He weighed to Ephron the silver which he had named in the hearing of the Hittites: 400 shekels of silver, according to the weights current among the merchants.
You shall have accurate and just balances, just weights, just ephah and hin measures. I am the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt.
You shall not have in your bag true and false weights, a large and a small.
A just balance and scales are the Lord's; all the weights of the bag are His work [established on His eternal principles].
Diverse weights [one for buying and another for selling] and diverse measures -- "both of them are exceedingly offensive and abhorrent to the Lord.
Diverse and deceitful weights are shamefully vile and abhorrent to the Lord, and false scales are not good.
You shall have just weights on your scales and just measures -- "both a just ephah measure and a just bath measure.
Can I be pure [Myself, and acquit the man] with wicked scales and with a bag of deceitful weights?
