19 Bible Verses about Honesty - ESV

English Standard Version (ESV)
Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
The integrity of the upright guides them,
but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.
To do righteousness and justice
is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.
Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.
A dishonest man spreads strife,
and a whisperer separates close friends.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they shall see God.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,
over the man who carries out evil devices!
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.
Treasures gained by wickedness do not profit,
but righteousness delivers from death.
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,
when it is in your power to do it.
But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.
It is well with the man who deals generously and lends;
who conducts his affairs with justice.
No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light.
Better is a little with righteousness
than great revenues with injustice.
For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing.
Then you will understand righteousness and justice
and equity, every good path.
Let your eyes look directly forward,
and your gaze be straight before you.

proverbs 27:10
Do not forsake your friend or a friend of your family, and do not go to your relative’s house when disaster strikes you— better a neighbor nearby than a relative far away.
