|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
6 Don't seize a handmill or an upper millstone as collateral for a loan. You'd be seizing someone's very life.
6 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.
