22 Bible Verses about Honesty

« 1 John 3:18 »

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.يَا أَوْلَادِي، لَا نُحِبَّ بِٱلْكَلَامِ وَلَا بِٱللِّسَانِ، بَلْ بِٱلْعَمَلِ وَٱلْحَقِّ!
The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.اِسْتِقَامَةُ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمِينَ تَهْدِيهِمْ، وَٱعْوِجَاجُ ٱلْغَادِرِينَ يُخْرِبُهُمْ.
To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.فِعْلُ ٱلْعَدْلِ وَٱلْحَقِّ أَفْضَلُ عِنْدَ ٱلرَّبِّ مِنَ ٱلذَّبِيحَةِ.
If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth.إِنْ قُلْنَا: إِنَّ لَنَا شَرِكَةً مَعَهُ وَسَلَكْنَا فِي ٱلظُّلْمَةِ، نَكْذِبُ وَلَسْنَا نَعْمَلُ ٱلْحَقَّ.
Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.فَأَعْطُوا ٱلْجَمِيعَ حُقُوقَهُمُ: ٱلْجِزْيَةَ لِمَنْ لَهُ ٱلْجِزْيَةُ. ٱلْجِبَايَةَ لِمَنْ لَهُ ٱلْجِبَايَةُ. وَٱلْخَوْفَ لِمَنْ لَهُ ٱلْخَوْفُ. وَٱلْإِكْرَامَ لِمَنْ لَهُ ٱلْإِكْرَامُ.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.طُوبَى لِلْأَنْقِيَاءِ ٱلْقَلْبِ، لِأَنَّهُمْ يُعَايِنُونَ ٱللهَ.
A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.رَجُلُ ٱلْأَكَاذِيبِ يُطْلِقُ ٱلْخُصُومَةَ، وَٱلنَّمَّامُ يُفَرِّقُ ٱلْأَصْدِقَاءَ.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.ٱجْتَهِدْ أَنْ تُقِيمَ نَفْسَكَ لِلهِ مُزَكًّى، عَامِلًا لَا يُخْزَى، مُفَصِّلًا كَلِمَةَ ٱلْحَقِّ بِٱلِٱسْتِقَامَةِ.
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.ٱنْتَظِرِ ٱلرَّبَّ وَٱصْبِرْ لَهُ، وَلَا تَغَرْ مِنَ ٱلَّذِي يَنْجَحُ فِي طَرِيقِهِ، مِنَ ٱلرَّجُلِ ٱلْمُجْرِي مَكَايِدَ.
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.وَأَمَّا ٱلْحِكْمَةُ ٱلَّتِي مِنْ فَوْقُ فَهِيَ أَوَّلًا طَاهِرَةٌ، ثُمَّ مُسَالِمَةٌ، مُتَرَفِّقَةٌ، مُذْعِنَةٌ، مَمْلُوَّةٌ رَحْمَةً وَأَثْمَارًا صَالِحَةً، عَدِيمَةُ ٱلرَّيْبِ وَٱلرِّيَاءِ.
Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.لَا تَمْنَعِ ٱلْخَيْرَ عَنْ أَهْلِهِ، حِينَ يَكُونُ فِي طَاقَةِ يَدِكَ أَنْ تَفْعَلَهُ.
Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.اَلْقَلِيلُ مَعَ ٱلْعَدْلِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ دَخْلٍ جَزِيلٍ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ.
Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.كُنُوزُ ٱلشَّرِّ لَا تَنْفَعُ، أَمَّا ٱلْبِرُّ فَيُنَجِّي مِنَ ٱلْمَوْتِ.
But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.وَلَكِنْ قَبْلَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ يَا إِخْوَتِي، لَا تَحْلِفُوا، لَا بِٱلسَّمَاءِ، وَلَا بِٱلْأَرْضِ، وَلَا بِقَسَمٍ آخَرَ. بَلْ لِتَكُنْ نَعَمْكُمْ نَعَمْ، وَلَاكُمْ لَا، لِئَلَّا تَقَعُوا تَحْتَ دَيْنُونَةٍ.
A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.سَعِيدٌ هُوَ ٱلرَّجُلُ ٱلَّذِي يَتَرَأَّفُ وَيُقْرِضُ. يُدَبِّرُ أُمُورَهُ بِٱلْحَقِّ.
No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.وَلَيْسَ أَحَدٌ يُوقِدُ سِرَاجًا وَيُغَطِّيهِ بِإِنَاءٍ أَوْ يَضَعُهُ تَحْتَ سَرِيرٍ، بَلْ يَضَعُهُ عَلَى مَنَارَةٍ، لِيَنْظُرَ ٱلدَّاخِلُونَ ٱلنُّورَ.
Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.حِينَئِذٍ تَفْهَمُ ٱلْعَدْلَ وَٱلْحَقَّ وَٱلِٱسْتِقَامَةَ، كُلَّ سَبِيلٍ صَالِحٍ.
Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.لِتَنْظُرْ عَيْنَاكَ إِلَى قُدَّامِكَ، وَأَجْفَانُكَ إِلَى أَمَامِكَ مُسْتَقِيمًا.
For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.فَإِنَّكُمْ لِأَجْلِ هَذَا تُوفُونَ ٱلْجِزْيَةَ أَيْضًا، إِذْ هُمْ خُدَّامُ ٱللهِ مُوَاظِبُونَ عَلَى ذَلِكَ بِعَيْنِهِ.
Lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight.كَرَاهَةُ ٱلرَّبِّ شَفَتَا كَذِبٍ، أَمَّا ٱلْعَامِلُونَ بِٱلصِّدْقِ فَرِضَاهُ.
But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.فَقَالَ بُطْرُسُ: «يَا حَنَانِيَّا، لِمَاذَا مَلَأَ ٱلشَّيْطَانُ قَلْبَكَ لِتَكْذِبَ عَلَى ٱلرُّوحِ ٱلْقُدُسِ وَتَخْتَلِسَ مِنْ ثَمَنِ ٱلْحَقْلِ؟ أَلَيْسَ وَهُوَ بَاقٍ كَانَ يَبْقَى لَكَ؟ وَلَمَّا بِيعَ، أَلَمْ يَكُنْ فِي سُلْطَانِكَ؟ فَمَا بَالُكَ وَضَعْتَ فِي قَلْبِكَ هَذَا ٱلْأَمْرَ؟ أَنْتَ لَمْ تَكْذِبْ عَلَى ٱلنَّاسِ بَلْ عَلَى ٱللهِ».
For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.فَلَيْسَ مَكْتُومٌ لَنْ يُسْتَعْلَنَ، وَلَا خَفِيٌّ لَنْ يُعْرَفَ.
