What does Deuteronomy 24:6 mean?
ESV: “No one shall take a mill or an upper millstone in pledge, for that would be taking a life in pledge.
NIV: Do not take a pair of millstones--not even the upper one--as security for a debt, because that would be taking a person's livelihood as security.
NASB: No one shall seize a handmill or an upper millstone as a pledge for a loan, since he would be seizing the debtor’s means of life as a pledge.
CSB: "Do not take a pair of grindstones or even the upper millstone as security for a debt, because that is like taking a life as security.
NLT: It is wrong to take a set of millstones, or even just the upper millstone, as security for a loan, for the owner uses it to make a living.
KJV: No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to pledge: for he taketh a man's life to pledge.
NKJV: “No man shall take the lower or the upper millstone in pledge, for he takes one’s living in pledge.
