'Falsehood' in the Bible
If I have walked in falsehoodor my foot has rushed to deceit,
I hate and abhor falsehood,but I love Your instruction.
Keep falsehood and deceitful words far from me.Give me neither poverty nor wealth;feed me with the food I need.
For you said, “We have cut a deal with Death,and we have made an agreement with Sheol;when the overwhelming scourge passes through,it will not touch us,because we have made falsehood our refugeand have hidden behind treachery.”
Surely, falsehood comes from the hills,commotion from the mountains,but the salvation of Israelis only in the Lord our God.
“How can you claim, ‘We are wise;the law of the Lord is with us’?In fact, the lying pen of scribeshas produced falsehood.
This is your lot,what I have decreed for you—this is the Lord’s declaration—because you have forgotten Meand trusted in Falsehood.
For the idols speak falsehood,and the diviners see illusions;they relate empty dreamsand offer empty comfort.Therefore the people wander like sheep;they suffer affliction because there is no shepherd.
