NET © Notes

tc The MT reads וּמְאַת (umÿat, “and the hundredth”) which is somewhat enigmatic. The BHS editors suggest emending to וּמַשַּׁאת (umashat, “and the debt”) which refers to the interest or collateral (pledge) seized by a creditor (Deut 24:10; Prov 22:26; see HALOT 641-42 s.v. מַשָּׁא). The term מַשַּׁאת (mashat) is related to the noun מָשָּׁא (masha’, “debt”) in 5:7, 10.
