Proverbs 6:16–19; Proverbs 10:18; Proverbs 12:19; Proverbs 12:22; Proverbs 13:5; Proverbs 17:20; Proverbs 19:22; Proverbs 21:6; Proverbs 26:28

16  There are dsix things that the Lord hates,

dseven that are an abomination to him:

17  ehaughty eyes, fa lying tongue,

and ghands that shed innocent blood,

18  ha heart that devises wicked plans,

ifeet that make haste to run to evil,

19  ja false witness who kbreathes out lies,

and one who asows discord among brothers.

18  The one who conceals hatred has lying lips,

and whoever utters slander is a fool.

19  Truthful lips endure forever,

but ea lying tongue is but for a moment.

22  hLying lips are ian abomination to the Lord,

jbut those who act faithfully are his delight.

The righteous hates falsehood,

but the wicked brings shame1 and disgrace.

20  mA man of crooked heart does not discover good,

and one with a dishonest tongue falls into calamity.

22  What is desired in a man is steadfast love,

and a poor man is better than a liar.

hThe getting of treasures by a lying tongue

is a ifleeting jvapor and a ksnare of death.1

28  A lying tongue hates its victims,

and a flattering mouth works ruin.
