13  You shall not have differing weights, greater and lesser, in your bag.

M G Sam

14  Thou shalt not have in thy house diverse measures, a great and a small.

14  Neither shall there be in your house a greater and a lesser measure.

14  You shall not have in your house different measures, a large and a small.

M Sam

15  A perfect and just weight shalt thou have; a perfect and just measure shalt thou have; that thy days may be long upon the land which YHWH thy God giveth thee.

15  Thou shalt have a true and just weight, and a true and just measure, that thou mayest live long upon the land which the Lord thy God gives thee for an inheritance.

15  You shall have a just and a true weight, and your measure shall be equal and true, so that you may live for a long time upon the land, which the Lord your God will give to you.

M Sam

16  For all that do such things, even all that do unrighteously, are an abomination unto YHWH thy God.

16  For every one that does this is an abomination to the Lord thy God, even every one that does injustice.
