Leviticus 19:36

Hebrew Bible

34 The resident foreigner who lives with you must be to you as a native citizen among you; so you must love the foreigner as yourself, because you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God. 35 You must not do injustice in the regulation of measures, whether of length, weight, or volume. 36 You must have honest balances, honest weights, an honest ephah, and an honest hin. I am the Lord your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt. 37 You must be sure to obey all my statutes and regulations. I am the Lord.’”

Proverbs 16:11

Hebrew Bible

9 A person plans his course, but the Lord directs his steps. 10 The divine verdict is in the words of the king; his pronouncements must not act treacherously against justice. 11 Honest scales and balances are from the Lord; all the weights in the bag are his handiwork. 12 Doing wickedness is an abomination to kings, because a throne is established in righteousness. 13 The delight of a king is righteous counsel, and he will love the one who speaks uprightly.
