Have honest weights and scales


"Do not havemeasures that are not exact in length, width or volume.You must have an honest scale, honest weights, an honest dry measure, and an honest liquid measure. I am Hashem your Lord, who brought you out of Egypt. (Vayikra 19:35,36)
Some things only Hashem knows, for example, who was a first born in Egypt and who was not . So too, only Hashem knows when a man cheats on his weights and measures. (Rashi) The person who remembers that he is standing in front of Hashem, will be careful with all his actions, words and thoughts.
