Proverbs 11:1 

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Folly of Wickedness

“11 ‘Dishonest[a]’ (Betsa’: Covetousness, (Dishonest) gain, etc..)‘scales’ (‘azan: ponder[ing], [pay] heed, etc.) are an abomination to the ‘Lord’ (YHWH: Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym), But a [b]just ‘weight’ (takan: balance, arrangement, etc..) is ‘His’ (ha-Ga’al[‘s]: the-Redeemer[‘s], the-Deliverer[‘s], etc..) delight.”

Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

Dishonest: 1215 betsa` beh’-tsah from 1214; plunder; by extension, gain (usually unjust):–covetousness, (dishonest) gain, lucre, profit.

Scales: 239 ‘azan aw-zan’ a primitive root (rather identical 238 through the idea of scales as if two ears); to weigh, i.e. (figuratively) ponder:–give good heed.

Weight: 8505 takan taw-kan’ a primitive root; to balance, i.e. measure out (by weight or dimension); figuratively, arrange[ment], equalize, through the idea of levelling (ment. estimate, test):–bear up, direct, be ((un-))equal, mete, ponder, tell, weigh.

His: 1350 ga’al gaw-al’ a primitive root, to redeem (according to the Oriental law of kinship), i.e. to be the next of kin (and as such to buy back a relative’s property, marry his widow, etc.):–X in any wise, X at all, avenger, deliver[-er], (do, perform the part of near, next) kinsfolk(-man), purchase, ransom, redeem(-er), revenger.
