Daily Wisdom 305: Proverbs 14:5

Proverbs 14:5 (NKJV) — 5 A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness will utter lies.

Faithful and false witnesses. People are not to bear false witness against others (Exodus 20:16). One need not be in a courtroom to be a witness. Passing along information that has not been verified can lead to false witness. A false witness is a liar. (See also Proverbs 14:25.)
