“and for all measurements of quantity and size.” David knew how important it was in a kingdom to have accurate weights and measures to insure fair trade, and he officially put the Levites in charge of standardizing weights and measures. They were likely unofficially in charge of that earlier, but that is not clear. Early in history, weights and measures often varied from town to town. See commentary on Leviticus 19:35.
