20:16Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

23:1Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.

Leviticus (Author Moses)

6:2If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour;

6:3Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein:

6:4Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found,

6:5Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering.

6:6And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD, a ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest:

6:7And the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD: and it shall be forgiven him for any thing of all that he hath done in trespassing therein.

19:11Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.

19:12And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

19:16Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I am the LORD.

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

13:4But ye are forgers of lies, ye are all physicians of no value.

21:34How then comfort ye me in vain, seeing in your answers there remaineth falsehood?

27:4My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.

31:5If I have walked with vanity, or if my foot hath hasted to deceit;

31:6Let me be weighed in an even balance, that God may know mine integrity.

31:33If I covered my transgressions as Adam, by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom:

36:4For truly my words shall not be false: he that is perfect in knowledge is with thee.

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

5:6Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

5:9For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

10:7His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.

12:2They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

12:3The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:

28:3Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.

31:18Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

50:20Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.

52:2Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.

52:3Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.

52:4Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.

52:5God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.

55:21The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.

55:23But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.

58:3The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

59:12For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.

62:4They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.

63:11But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.

101:5Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.

101:7He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

2:12To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;

2:13Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

2:14Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;

2:15Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

3:3Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

6:12A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.

6:13He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;

6:17A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

6:18An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

6:19A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

10:9He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.

10:10He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow: but a prating fool shall fall.

12:19The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

12:20Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.

12:22Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.

13:5A righteous man hateth lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.

14:5A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.

14:8The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way: but the folly of fools is deceit.

14:25A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.

17:4A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

19:22The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar.

20:17Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.

21:6The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.

26:18As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death,

26:19So is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport?

26:24He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him;

26:25When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

28:15Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

32:7The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.

57:11And of whom hast thou been afraid or feared, that thou hast lied, and hast not remembered me, nor laid it to thy heart? have not I held my peace even of old, and thou fearest me not?

59:3For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.

9:3And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD.

9:5And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.

9:6Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.

9:8Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait.

8:44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
