I signed the deed, and sealed it, and called witnesses, and weighed him the money in the balances. Bible

“in the balances.” It is not that there was more than one balance, but the noun “balance” is a dual noun because there were two pans or pouches, one on each end of the balance beam. [For more on the biblical balance, see commentary on Prov. 11:1].
