16 There are dsix things that the Lord hates,
dseven that are an abomination to him:
and ghands that shed innocent blood,
18 ha heart that devises wicked plans,
ifeet that make haste to run to evil,
and one who asows discord among brothers.
31 xThe mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom,
but the perverse tongue will be cut off.
19 Truthful lips endure forever,
but ea lying tongue is but for a moment.
20 Deceit is in the heart of fthose who devise evil,
but those who plan peace have joy.
21 gNo ill befalls the righteous,
but the wicked are filled with trouble.
jbut those who act faithfully are his delight.
5 The righteous hates falsehood,
but the wicked brings shame1 and disgrace.
25 A truthful witness saves lives,
but one who lbreathes out lies is deceitful.
7 Fine speech is not wbecoming to a fool;
still less is xfalse speech to a prince.
20 mA man of crooked heart does not discover good,
and one with a dishonest tongue falls into calamity.
9 gA false witness will not go unpunished,
and he who hbreathes out lies will perish.
6 hThe getting of treasures by a lying tongue
28 kA false witness will perish,
but the word of a man who hears will endure.
18 A man who hbears false witness against his neighbor
is like a war club, or ia sword, or a sharp arrow.
18 Like a madman who throws ofirebrands, arrows, and death
19 is the man who deceives his neighbor
and says, “I am only joking!”
24 Whoever hates disguises himself with his lips
and harbors deceit in his heart;
28 A lying tongue hates its victims,
and a flattering mouth works ruin.
13 Whoever xconceals his transgressions will not prosper,
but he who yconfesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.
5 tEvery word of God proves true;
he is ua shield to those who take refuge in him.
6 vDo not add to his words,
lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar.
7 Two things I ask of you;
deny them not to me wbefore I die:
8 Remove far from me falsehood and lying;
give me neither poverty nor riches;
feed me with the food that is xneedful for me,
