Ki Taytzay: Can We Honestly Measure A Person?

A passage from this week's Torah portion, Ki Taytzay, calls for honest measures in business:

"You must not keep in your pouch two different weights, one large and one small. (Similarly,) you must not keep in your house two different measures-one large and one small. You must have a full honest weight and a full honest measure. If you do, you will long endure on the land that the Lord our God has given you."
