DescriptionGod calls and expects us to walk in honesty, to abhor deception, and maintain an upright reputation with the world around us.
11 “You shall not steal; you shall not deal falsely; you shall not lie to one another.
17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all.
2 Corinthians 8:21
21 for we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord's sight but also in the sight of man.
1 Peter 2:12
12 Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.
5 A faithful witness does not lie,
but a false witness breathes out lies.
9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices
14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.
28 Be not a witness against your neighbor without cause,
and do not deceive with your lips.
17 Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man,
but afterward his mouth will be full of gravel.
6 You destroy those who speak lies;
the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
8 He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
7 The righteous who walks in his integrity—
blessed are his children after him!
6 Blessings are on the head of the righteous,
but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.
20 The tongue of the righteous is choice silver;
the heart of the wicked is of little worth.
13 An evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips,
but the righteous escapes from trouble.
4 “Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him,
but the righteous shall live by his faith.
4 Blessed is the man who makes
the Lord his trust,
who does not turn to the proud,
to those who go astray after a lie!
11 But the king shall rejoice in God;
all who swear by him shall exult,
for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
9 A false witness will not go unpunished,
and he who breathes out lies will perish.
16 There are six things that the Lord hates,
seven that are an abomination to him:
17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 a heart that devises wicked plans,
feet that make haste to run to evil,
19 a false witness who breathes out lies,
and one who sows discord among brothers.
2 If a man vows a vow to the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word. He shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.
8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
1 John 2:4
4 Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him,
13 Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy.
1 Thessalonians 4:12
12 so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.
