Deuteronomy 25:16 Meaning and Commentary

Deuteronomy 25:16

For all that do such things
Keep, different weights and measures, and make use of them to defraud their neighbours in buying and selling:

[and] all that do unrighteously;
what is not just and right between man and man, in any other instance whatever:

[are] an abomination unto the Lord thy God;
both they and their actions; he is a righteous God, and loves righteousness, and hates injustice of every kind.
