Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types [2]

 Job 6:2 (a) Certain it is that the loving GOD of Heaven knows just how much sorrow we can bear. He says about our griefs, pains and troubles "thus far shalt thou go, and no farther." He never deals unjustly with His people.

 Psalm 58:2 (a) It seems that these wicked men planned deliberately to accomplish certain evil purposes, and decided on the limits of their wicked plans and intentions.

 Isaiah 26:7 (a) GOD is well acquainted with every detail of our lives, and He knows the value of what we are doing, what we are saying, where we are going, and our manner of life. He makes a record of this to use at the Judgment Seat.

 Isaiah 40:12 (a) It is an actual fact that all chemical elements are put together by weight, and not by volume. So, in every mountain and hill, the chemicals that compose that mass of earth are put together by weight, and thus are made the various compounds found there. In addition to this, GOD must know the weight of the mountains, because the earth is a ball and must rotate on an axis without bursting and flying to pieces. It is well known that nothing will rotate safely on an axis unless it is perfectly balanced. Our Lord has therefore determined exactly the weights of the mountains, the plains, the oceans, and every part of this earth in order that it may rotate safely.

 Daniel 5:27 (a) Before we die, and while we are still living, GOD estimates the value and the worth of each soul. This king had been placed in GOD's scales while he was still living and serving on the throne. The estimate of his value was made before he died. This is true of every human being. The decision concerning our destiny is made by GOD while we are still living. This should make us seriously consider our relationship to GOD.

King James Dictionary [3]

WEIGHT, n. Wate. See Weigh.

1. The quantity of a body, ascertained by the balance in a philosophical sense, that quality of bodies by which they tend towards the center of the earth in a line perpendicular to its surface. In short, weight is gravity, and the weight of a particular body is the amount of its gravity, or of the force with which it tends to the center. The weight of a body is in direct proportion to its quantity of matter. 2. A mass of iron, lead, brass or other metal, to be used for ascertaining the weight of other bodies as a weight of an ounce, a pound, a quarter of a hundred, &c. The weights of nations are different except those of England and the United States, which are the same. 3. A ponderous mass something heavy.

A man leaps better with weights in his hands.

4. Pressure burden as the weight of grief weight of care weight of business weight of government. 5. Importance power influence efficacy consequence moment impressiveness as a argument of great weight a consideration of vast weight. The dignity of a mans character adds weight to his words.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [4]

wāt ( Measure of quantity ) משׁקל , mishḳāl , ( משׁקל , mshḳōl (  Ezekiel 4:10 ), from שׁקל , shāḳkal , "to weigh" אבן , 'ebhen , "a stone" used for weighing in the balance): Weights were commonly of stone or bronze (or of lead,  Zechariah 5:7 ,  Zechariah 5:8 ). They were of various forms, such as the lion-shaped weights of Babylonia and Assyria, or in the form of birds and other animals. The Hebrew and Phoenician weights, when made of stone, were barrel-shaped or spindle-shaped, but in bronze they were often cubical or octagonal or with numerous faces (see illustration under Weights And Measures ). Hemispherical or dome-shaped stone weights have been found in Palestine ( PEFS , 1902, p. 344; 1903, p. 117; 1904, p. 209).

Figurative : The phrase "without weight" (  2 Kings 25:16 ) signifies a quantity too great to be estimated. "Weight of glory" ( 2 Corinthians 4:17 , βάρος , báros ) has a similar meaning, but with a spiritual reference. "Weighty," "weightier" ( Matthew 23:23;  2 Corinthians 10:10 , βαρύς , barús , βαρύτερος , barúteros ), signify what is important. The Greek (ὄγκος , ógkos ) ( Hebrews 12:1 ), is used in the sense of burden, hindrance, as is also the Hebrew nēṭel ( Proverbs 27:3 ).
