Mishlei 20:23 - Another Pasuk About Deceitful Weights and Measures?!
Play • 54 min

תּוֹעֲבַת י״י אֶבֶן וָאָבֶן וּמֹאזְנֵי מִרְמָה לֹא טוֹב:

This morning (9/17/21) we encountered yet ANOTHER pasuk about deceitful weights and measures! We had enough difficulty with the pasuk earlier in the perek, which seemed to be a repetition of what is already stated in the Torah. What does this NEW seemingly redundant pasuk come to add? Thankfully, Saadia Gaon's translation and commentary held the key to a new idea.
