21 Bible Verses about Lying

« 1 Peter 3:10-11 »
For, Whoever would love life
and see good days
must keep their tongue from evil
and their lips from deceitful speech.
They must turn from evil and do good;
they must seek peace and pursue it.
The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart;
whose tongue utters no slander,
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others.
He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”
A perverse person stirs up conflict,
and a gossip separates close friends.
Save me, Lord,
from lying lips
and from deceitful tongues.
Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips
and spreads slander is a fool.
If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.
Whoever walks in integrity walks securely,
but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.
Keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from telling lies.
The soothing tongue is a tree of life,
but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.
The Lord detests lying lips,
but he delights in people who are trustworthy.
A gossip betrays a confidence,
but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
An honest witness does not deceive,
but a false witness pours out lies.
Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.
Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread.
To fear the Lord is to hate evil;
I hate pride and arrogance,
evil behavior and perverse speech.
‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’
The lips of the righteous know what finds favor,
but the mouth of the wicked only what is perverse.
Keep your mouth free of perversity;
keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Eloquent lips are unsuited to a godless fool—
how much worse lying lips to a ruler!
