Proverbs 20:29 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

23 An abomination to Jahve are two kinds of weights;

     And deceitful balances are not good.

A variant to Proverbs 20:10, Proverbs 11:1. The pred. לא־טוב (Proverbs 17:26; Proverbs 18:5; Proverbs 19:3) is conceived of as neut.; they are not good, much rather bad and pernicious, for the deceiver succeeds only in appearance; in reality he fails.
