God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should repent. Has he said, and he won’t do it? Or has he spoken, and he won’t make it good?
1 But the Spirit says expressly that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons,
2 through the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron,
3 forbidding marriage and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
16 There are six things which Yahweh hates; yes, seven which are an abomination to him:
17 arrogant eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are swift in running to mischief,
19 a false witness who utters lies, and he who sows discord among brothers.
You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and doesn’t stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks on his own; for he is a liar, and the father of lies.
“You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
He who practices deceit won’t dwell within my house. He who speaks falsehood won’t be established before my eyes.
“‘You shall not steal. “‘You shall not lie. “‘You shall not deceive one another.
Don’t lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his doings,
and have put on the new man, who is being renewed in knowledge after the image of his Creator,
Getting treasures by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor for those who seek death.
God of my praise, don’t remain silent,
for they have opened the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit against me. They have spoken to me with a lying tongue.
Lying lips are an abomination to Yahweh, but those who do the truth are his delight.
The remnant of Israel will not do iniquity nor speak lies, neither will a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth, for they will feed and lie down, and no one will make them afraid.”
A truthful witness will not lie, but a false witness pours out lies.
But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, don’t boast and don’t lie against the truth.
Therefore, putting away falsehood, speak truth each one with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.
Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
Excellent speech isn’t fitting for a fool, much less do lying lips fit a prince.
