19 Bible Verses about Lying

« Psalms 15:2-3 »
New Internation VersionEnglish Standard Version
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 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 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.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.”
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.”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.”

The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets, but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.
Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool.The one who conceals hatred has lying lips, and whoever utters slander is a fool.
Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out.
Save me, Lord, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues.Deliver me, O Lord, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.
Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.
To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.

‘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.’“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.”
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
