Deuteronomy 25:13

Context

25:13 You must not have in your bag different stone weights, 1  a heavy and a light one. 2 

Deuteronomy 25:15

Context
25:15 You must have an accurate and correct 3  stone weight and an accurate and correct measuring container, so that your life may be extended in the land the Lord your God is about to give you.

1 tn Heb “a stone and a stone.” The repetition of the singular noun here expresses diversity, as the following phrase indicates. See IBHS 116 §7.2.3c.

2 tn Heb “a large and a small,” but since the issue is the weight, “a heavy and a light one” conveys the idea better in English.

3 tn Or “just”; Heb “righteous.”
