  • Exodus 20:16 NIV "You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.Exodus 20:16 NBLH "No darásfalsotestimonio contra tuprójimo.Second command dealing with tongue:Reputation of God (name in vain).Reputation of neighbor (this command).False witness plunged man & sin into sin & sent Jesus to the cross.Cultural problems with obeying ninth command. Paradox:Surest way to offend someone is to call him a liar.Our culture is not nearly so opposed to lying as to being accused of lying.Politics - Cambridge study revealed that 69% believe all politicians lie.Advertising - puffing - mileage, cost of operation. We do mental math to reduce the exaggerated claim.Truthfulness seems to be an option. Certain amount of accepted untruthfulness.The real problem is our nature. To lie is to concede a foreign heritage.
  • Jeremiah 17:9 NBLH Más engañoso que todo, es el corazón, Y sin remedio; ¿Quién lo comprenderá?
  • Matthew 12:34 NBLH "¡Camada de víboras! ¿Cómo pueden hablar cosas buenas siendo malos? Porque de la abundancia del corazón habla la boca.
  • John 8:44 NBLH "Ustedes son de su padre el diablo y quieren hacer los deseos de su padre. El fue un asesino desde el principio, y no se ha mantenido en la verdad porque no hay verdad en él. Cuando habla mentira, habla de su propia naturaleza, porque es mentiroso y el padre de la mentira.
  • Three of the seven sins God hates deal with the same command.Proverbs 6:16-19 NBLH Seis cosas hay que el SEÑOR odia, Y siete son abominación para El: (17) Ojos soberbios, lengua mentirosa, Manos que derraman sangre inocente, (18) Un corazón que trama planes perversos, Pies que corren rápidamente hacia el mal, (19) Un testigo falso que dice mentiras, Y el que siembra discordia entre hermanos.
  • It is not about honest untruths. Not every untruth is a lie.Mistake - calling a Buick a Chevrolet.Inaccurate information - 7 pm/6 pm.
  • It is not about total disclosure. I don't have to know all things, nor do I have to tell everything I know.Common with counseling. The truth is that what someone tells me is "none of your business". Value of confidence.There are times when it is best to keep silence because to speak could do immeasurable harm.
  • Deuteronomy 19:15-21 NBLH (15) "No se levantará un solo testigo contra un hombre por cualquier iniquidad o por cualquier pecado que haya cometido. El caso será confirmado por el testimonio de dos o tres testigos. (16) "Si un testigo falso se levanta contra un hombre para acusarlo de transgresión, (17) los dos litigantes se presentarán delante del SEÑOR, delante de los sacerdotes y de los jueces que haya en esos días. (18) "Y los jueces investigarán minuciosamente; y si el testigo es un testigo falso y ha acusado a su hermano falsamente, (19) entonces ustedes le harán a él lo que él intentaba hacer a su hermano. Así quitarás el mal de en medio de ti. (20) "Los demás oirán y temerán, y nunca más volverán a hacer una maldad semejante en medio de ti. (21) "No tendrás piedad: vida por vida, ojo por ojo, diente por diente, mano por mano, pie por pie.
  • This command had legal applications.The way to stop perjury is to give the penalty for the crime the defendant is accused of.
  • Psalms 15:1-5 NBLH Salmo de David. SEÑOR, ¿quién habitará en Tu tabernáculo? ¿Quién morará en Tu santo monte? (2) El que anda en integridad y obra justicia, Y habla verdad en su corazón. (3) El que no calumnia con su lengua, No hace mal a su prójimo, Ni toma reproche contra su amigo; (4) En cuyos ojos el perverso es despreciado, pero honra a los que temen al SEÑOR; El que aun jurando en perjuicio propio, no cambia; (5) El que su dinero no da a interés, Ni acepta soborno contra el inocente. El que hace estas cosas permanecerá firme.
  • Romans 1:29-31 NBLH Están llenos de toda injusticia, maldad (perversidad), avaricia y malicia, llenos de envidia, homicidios, pleitos, engaños, y malignidad. Son chismosos, (30) detractores (calumniadores), aborrecedores (enemigos) de Dios, insolentes, soberbios, jactanciosos (arrogantes), inventores de lo malo, desobedientes (rebeldes) a los padres, (31) sin entendimiento, indignos de confianza (desleales), sin amor, despiadados.An interesting pair of words at end of v. 29 & beginning of v. 30:Gk. katalaloi translated "slanderers", is literally "people who talk others down". “Laleo” not “lego” or “hrema” or other words that imply logic and rational thought.Gk. psithuristees translated "whisperers", is onomatopoetic, it starts "Psst" just like a whisperer does.Slander is covered in more detail than any other sin in the Bible.Rarely do two people come close except at the expense of another.They called Jesus a glutton, drunkard & blasphemer. They killed him with their words long before they killed him with nails.
  • Insinuation is the "no risk" lie. When the new girl at school is popular, someone asks: "I wonder why she's so popular." The insinuator didn't say anything, but he or she raised moral questions.The insinuator claims "I didn't say that", but hearts as wicked as yours heard exactly what you intended them to hear. That is the nature of insinuations: what is not said speaks louder than what is.The Devil is a master of insinuation. He plays both ends against the middle.
  • Genesis 3:1-6 NBLH La serpiente era más astuta que cualquiera de los animales del campo que el SEÑOR Dios había hecho. Y dijo a la mujer: "¿Conque Dios les ha dicho: 'No comerán de ningún árbol del huerto'?" (2) La mujer respondió a la serpiente: "Del fruto de los árboles del huerto podemos comer; (3) pero del fruto del árbol que está en medio del huerto, Dios ha dicho: 'No comerán de él, ni lo tocarán, para que no mueran.'" (4) Y la serpiente dijo a la mujer: "Ciertamente no morirán. (5) "Pues Dios sabe que el día que de él coman, se les abrirán los ojos y ustedes serán como Dios, conociendo el bien y el mal." (6) Cuando la mujer vio que el árbol era bueno para comer, y que era agradable a los ojos, y que el árbol era deseable para alcanzar sabiduría, tomó de su fruto y comió. También dio a su marido que estaba con ella, y él comió.
  • Job 1:9-11 NBLH Satanás respondió al SEÑOR: "¿Acaso teme Job a Dios de balde? (10) "¿No has hecho Tú una valla alrededor de él, de su casa y de todo lo que tiene, por todos lados? Has bendecido el trabajo de sus manos y sus posesiones han aumentado en la tierra. (11) "Pero extiende ahora Tu mano y toca todo lo que tiene, y verás si no Te maldice en Tu misma cara.“
  • Job 2:3-5 NBLH Y el SEÑOR dijo a Satanás: "¿Te has fijado en Mi siervo Job? Porque no hay otro como él sobre la tierra; es un hombre intachable (íntegro), recto, temeroso de Dios y apartado del mal. El todavía conserva su integridad a pesar de que tú me incitaste contra él para que lo arruinara sin causa." (4) Satanás respondió al SEÑOR: "¡Piel por piel! Sí, todo lo que el hombre tiene dará por su vida. (5) "Sin embargo, extiende ahora Tu mano y toca su hueso y su carne, verás si no Te maldice en Tu misma cara."
  • Whenever we insinuate, we talk like the Devil.
  • It is a sin to hold your tongue at the expense of the one being maligned.We're guilty. The Lord is attacked daily and we say nothing.
  • Some people have a great sense of rumor.
  • Proverbs 29:20 NBLH ¿Ves a un hombre precipitado en sus palabras? Más esperanza hay para el necio que para él.
  • Much of our conversation has no purpose but to take up time.The tongue is the only instrument that gets sharper with use. If you talk about someone long enough, someone will say something bad.
  • Proverbs 13:3 NBLH El que guarda su boca, preserva su vida; El que mucho abre sus labios, termina en ruina.
  • Lady said: "Mom taught me never say anything about someone unless it's good ... Boy is this good!"What's the motive? To help, or to blab?
  • 1 Peter 3:10 NBLH Porque, "EL QUE DESEA LA VIDA, AMAR Y VER DIAS BUENOS, REFRENE SU LENGUA DEL MAL Y SUS LABIOS NO HABLEN ENGAÑO.
  • Psalms 141:3 NBLH SEÑOR, pon guarda a mi boca; Vigila la puerta de mis labios.Preacher’s prayer might be good for all of us; “Lord, fill my mouth with worthwhile stuff, then nudge me when I’ve said enough.”Prayer: Help us struggle to obey the ninth command. Set a guard over our mouths and keep watch over the door of our lips.Invitation: You cannot tame the old tongue with the old heart. The old heart is wicked. You need a new heart. Only Jesus can give it.
