NET ©

One must not take either lower or upper millstones as security on a loan, for that is like taking a life itself as security. 1 

NIV ©

Do not take a pair of millstones—not even the upper one— as security for a debt, because that would be taking a man’s livelihood as security.

NASB ©

"No one shall take a handmill or an upper millstone in pledge, for he would be taking a life in pledge.

NLT ©

"It is wrong to take a pair of millstones, or even just the upper millstone, as a pledge, for the owner uses it to make a living.

MSG ©

Don't seize a handmill or an upper millstone as collateral for a loan. You'd be seizing someone's very life.

BBE ©

No one is to take, on account of a debt, the stones with which grain is crushed: for in doing so he takes a man’s living.

NRSV ©

No one shall take a mill or an upper millstone in pledge, for that would be taking a life in pledge.

NET © Notes

sn Taking millstones as security on a loan would amount to taking the owner’s own life in pledge, since the millstones were the owner’s means of earning a living and supporting his family.
