Proverbs 11:1 In your anger do not sin: The Lord abhors dishonest scales, but accurate weights are his delight.

Proverbs 20:10 In your anger do not sin: Differing weights and differing measures the Lord detests them both.


While scales are not in use in most businesses today, they were necessary in most of the businesses of Old Testament times. There is little doubt in God’s view of how business should be conducted. Honesty is the path of those who follow the Lord.
