What is the opposite of honesty?

What is the opposite of honesty? What is the opposite of the truth? The opposite of honesty is dishonesty. And the opposite of the truth is a lie. So what is the difference? The difference is there are only one truth and many untruthful nesses. And lies are bad and wrong.
So what dose the Bible say about lies? It says in Psalms 58:3;The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies. Which means they learn to lie from the get go. And in Psalms 63:11 it says. But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped. In other words lies will be punished. In Psalms 101:7 David states. He that worked deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight. In Proverbs 14:5 Solomon says. A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies. And in Proverbs 14:25 A true witness delivers souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies. He also says in Proverbs 19:5 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape. And in Proverbs 19:9, A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish. This is what God said through Isaiah. (Isaiah 9:15) The ancient and honorable, he is the head; and the prophet that teaches lies, he is the tail. (Isaiah 59:4) None called for justice, nor any pleaded for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. This verse says they are mischief and brings forth nothing but sin.
The Bible also has a lot to say about stealing. As in (Deu. 24:7) Moses says If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and makes merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shall put evil away from among you. In (Hos. 4:2) he says. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood. In (Ex. 20:15) God says Thou shalt not steal. In (Ex. 22:1) God says the punishment should be for. If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep. Jesus says in (Luke 18:20). Thou knowest the commandments, do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother. (Joh 10:10) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
(Eph 4:28) Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good that he may have to give to him that needed.
As you can see lying & stealing is a very important topic, but wrong thing to do so next time you think about grabbing that penny of the chest or tell your mom that you did some thing when you know full good and well that you didn’t . remember Your sin will find you out.
