Proverbs 13:5 A righteous man hateth lying: But a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.
God’s people not only speak the truth, but they also hate lies. They hate anything but the truth. How is it that some Christians will stoop to lie. They are not living and acting like people of truth.
The wicked man is loathsome. That means to be bad, stinking. It means that he is harmful. He lives in a miserable state. He is hated. He has a bad reputation. We do not want that to be our testimony. The liar will get embarrassed. He will come to shame. So speak the truth and live in the truth. Those that know God know the truth and want to live in truth.
