The "law of honest weights and measures" is found in Lev. 19:35-36. The Scriptures speak of money as weight. In so doing, God is declaring what the legal basis of money shall be: a commodity which possesses precisely the weight and fineness that are announced on an ingot or coin or other shape. Neither the State nor private citizens have the right to declare dross the economic equivalent of precious metal.
