Estates (Prov 20:21-20:24)

“An estate quickly acquired in the beginning

Will not be blessed in the end.

Do not say.

‘I will repay evil.’

Wait for Yahweh.

He will help you.

Diverse weights are an abomination to Yahweh.

False scales are not good.

All our steps are ordered by Yahweh.

How then can we understand our own ways?”

If you get money too quickly, it will not be blessed in the end. Do not try to repay evil. Wait for Yahweh to help you. Once again, there is an admonition about diverse weights and false scales. This must have been quite a problem because it keeps coming up. Our steps are determined by Yahweh so that we cannot understand our own ways.
