CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
5:8 This - This woman represents the wickedness of the Jews. He cast it - The angel cast down this woman. On the mouth - And so shut her up, to suffer the punishment of all her sins.
But no, the people are like crafty merchants selling from dishonest scales--they love to cheat.
You can't wait for the Sabbath day to be over and the religious festivals to end so you can get back to cheating the helpless. You measure out grain with dishonest measures and cheat the buyer with dishonest scales.
How can I tolerate your merchants who use dishonest scales and weights?
Then the heavy lead cover was lifted off the basket, and there was a woman sitting inside it.
