22 Bible Verses about Honesty

« 1 John 3:18 »

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.يَا أَوْلَادِي، لَا نُحِبَّ بِٱلْكَلَامِ وَلَا بِٱللِّسَانِ، بَلْ بِٱلْعَمَلِ وَٱلْحَقِّ!
The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.اِسْتِقَامَةُ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمِينَ تَهْدِيهِمْ، وَٱعْوِجَاجُ ٱلْغَادِرِينَ يُخْرِبُهُمْ.
To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.فِعْلُ ٱلْعَدْلِ وَٱلْحَقِّ أَفْضَلُ عِنْدَ ٱلرَّبِّ مِنَ ٱلذَّبِيحَةِ.
If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.إِنْ قُلْنَا: إِنَّ لَنَا شَرِكَةً مَعَهُ وَسَلَكْنَا فِي ٱلظُّلْمَةِ، نَكْذِبُ وَلَسْنَا نَعْمَلُ ٱلْحَقَّ.
Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.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 will see God.طُوبَى لِلْأَنْقِيَاءِ ٱلْقَلْبِ، لِأَنَّهُمْ يُعَايِنُونَ ٱللهَ.
A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.رَجُلُ ٱلْأَكَاذِيبِ يُطْلِقُ ٱلْخُصُومَةَ، وَٱلنَّمَّامُ يُفَرِّقُ ٱلْأَصْدِقَاءَ.
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.ٱجْتَهِدْ أَنْ تُقِيمَ نَفْسَكَ لِلهِ مُزَكًّى، عَامِلًا لَا يُخْزَى، مُفَصِّلًا كَلِمَةَ ٱلْحَقِّ بِٱلِٱسْتِقَامَةِ.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.ٱنْتَظِرِ ٱلرَّبَّ وَٱصْبِرْ لَهُ، وَلَا تَغَرْ مِنَ ٱلَّذِي يَنْجَحُ فِي طَرِيقِهِ، مِنَ ٱلرَّجُلِ ٱلْمُجْرِي مَكَايِدَ.
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.وَأَمَّا ٱلْحِكْمَةُ ٱلَّتِي مِنْ فَوْقُ فَهِيَ أَوَّلًا طَاهِرَةٌ، ثُمَّ مُسَالِمَةٌ، مُتَرَفِّقَةٌ، مُذْعِنَةٌ، مَمْلُوَّةٌ رَحْمَةً وَأَثْمَارًا صَالِحَةً، عَدِيمَةُ ٱلرَّيْبِ وَٱلرِّيَاءِ.
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act.لَا تَمْنَعِ ٱلْخَيْرَ عَنْ أَهْلِهِ، حِينَ يَكُونُ فِي طَاقَةِ يَدِكَ أَنْ تَفْعَلَهُ.
Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.اَلْقَلِيلُ مَعَ ٱلْعَدْلِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ دَخْلٍ جَزِيلٍ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ.
Ill-gotten treasures have no lasting value, but righteousness delivers from death.كُنُوزُ ٱلشَّرِّ لَا تَنْفَعُ، أَمَّا ٱلْبِرُّ فَيُنَجِّي مِنَ ٱلْمَوْتِ.
Above all, my brothers and sisters, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. All you need to say is a simple “Yes” or “No.” Otherwise you will be condemned.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.
Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice.سَعِيدٌ هُوَ ٱلرَّجُلُ ٱلَّذِي يَتَرَأَّفُ وَيُقْرِضُ. يُدَبِّرُ أُمُورَهُ بِٱلْحَقِّ.
No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.وَلَيْسَ أَحَدٌ يُوقِدُ سِرَاجًا وَيُغَطِّيهِ بِإِنَاءٍ أَوْ يَضَعُهُ تَحْتَ سَرِيرٍ، بَلْ يَضَعُهُ عَلَى مَنَارَةٍ، لِيَنْظُرَ ٱلدَّاخِلُونَ ٱلنُّورَ.
Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path.حِينَئِذٍ تَفْهَمُ ٱلْعَدْلَ وَٱلْحَقَّ وَٱلِٱسْتِقَامَةَ، كُلَّ سَبِيلٍ صَالِحٍ.
Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you.لِتَنْظُرْ عَيْنَاكَ إِلَى قُدَّامِكَ، وَأَجْفَانُكَ إِلَى أَمَامِكَ مُسْتَقِيمًا.
This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.فَإِنَّكُمْ لِأَجْلِ هَذَا تُوفُونَ ٱلْجِزْيَةَ أَيْضًا، إِذْ هُمْ خُدَّامُ ٱللهِ مُوَاظِبُونَ عَلَى ذَلِكَ بِعَيْنِهِ.
The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy.كَرَاهَةُ ٱلرَّبِّ شَفَتَا كَذِبٍ، أَمَّا ٱلْعَامِلُونَ بِٱلصِّدْقِ فَرِضَاهُ.
Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied just to human beings but to 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».
There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.فَلَيْسَ مَكْتُومٌ لَنْ يُسْتَعْلَنَ، وَلَا خَفِيٌّ لَنْ يُعْرَفَ.
