Proverbs 11:1

[ <1 minutes to read ]

A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.
– Proverbs 11:1

[T]he law forbade conducting deceptive transactions and cheating the scale (Leviticus 19:35-36; Deuteronomy 25:13-16). God rebuked Israel for this sin through the prophets (Amos 8:5; Micah 6:10). Wisdom likewise teaches the abomination of false balances (Proverbs 16:11; 20:10, 23). A just weight is a complete measure, or we might think of it as accurate. God delights in this sort of honesty, fairness, and just dealings.
