Lies and Deceit
A lie can only be covered up with more lies.
Truthful lips will be established forever, but a lying tongue is only for a moment.
The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor, the pursuit of death.
Deceit can only be concealed by more deceit.
Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put devious lips far from you.
The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way, but the folly of fools is deceit.
Truth, on the other hand, needs no cover.
Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth, each one of you, with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.
Truth is not the best policy, it's the only policy.
Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Buy truth, and do not sell it, get wisdom and instruction and understanding.
Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who deal faithfully are His delight.
