Divers weights, [and] divers measures
Or, "a stone and a stone, and an ephah and an ephah" F4. Stones being in old time used in weighing, and an "ephah" was a common measure among the Jews; and these ought not to be different; one stone or weight for buying, and another for selling; and one measure to buy goods in with, and another to sell out with; the one too heavy, the other too light; the one too large, and the other too scanty; whereby justice is not done between man and man; whereas they ought to be just and equal, ( Leviticus 19:35 Leviticus 19:36 ) ; both of them [are] alike abomination to the Lord;
who loves righteousness and hates iniquity, and requires of men to do justly; and abhors every act of injustice, and whatever is detrimental to men's properties; see ( Proverbs 11:1 ) ( 16:11 ) .
