The LORD detests differing weights, and dishonest scales do not please him.
Differing weights are an abomination to the LORD, And a false scale is not good.
The LORD despises double standards; he is not pleased by dishonest scales.
GOD hates cheating in the marketplace; rigged scales are an outrage.
Unequal weights are disgusting to the Lord, and false scales are not good.
Differing weights are an abomination to the LORD, and false scales are not good.
Diverse weights are an abomination to the LORD, And dishonest scales are not good.
