15 Bible Verses about Lying

English Standard Version (ESV)
He who walks blamelessly and does what is right
and speaks truth in his heart;
who does not slander with his tongue
and does no evil to his neighbor,
nor takes up a reproach against his friend.
For “Whoever desires to love life
and see good days,
let him keep his tongue from evil
and his lips from speaking deceit;
let him turn away from evil and do good;
let him seek peace and pursue it.”
And he said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”
A dishonest man spreads strife,
and a whisperer separates close friends.
If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.
Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets,
but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.
A gentle tongue is a tree of life,
but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
Whoever walks in integrity walks securely,
but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out.
The one who conceals hatred has lying lips,
and whoever utters slander is a fool.
Remove far from me falsehood and lying;
give me neither poverty nor riches;
feed me with the food that is needful for me.
Deliver me, O Lord,
from lying lips,
from a deceitful tongue.
Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
“You shall not murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from speaking deceit.
Fine speech is not becoming to a fool;
still less is false speech to a prince.
