  • The foundation of this command is that of not speaking falsely in an accusatory fashion of others.


  • The real purpose of this commandment is often misunderstood so that the commandment itself is frequently misapplied. It is not really about perjury, which is covered under the Third Commandment, against taking God's name in vain. It is not about honesty primarily, which is covered in the Eighth Commandment, against stealing. It is not even primarily about truth-telling in the abstract. There are times when the truth is simply inappropriate. God approved and blessed the Egyptian midwives, who lied to protect Hebrew children, and Rahab, who lied to protect the Israelite spies... The Ninth Commandment is primarily about responsible speech with regard to our Neighbor.
