|THE SEAL OF GOD and|
|Speak not against the truth;
And when you lack knowledge, keep silent.
|Keep your tongue from
Whoever speaks falsely will himself be maligned.
|Be steadfast in your
And let your speech be true to it.
|Speakers of falsehood are
despised by all,
But the faithful are honored in the sight of man.
|Be ruler over your speech,
And have control over your words.
|Utter no falsehood,
For the habit of it leads to evil.
|He who strives for truth and
Is worthy in the sight of man.
|Falsehood is common, truth is
Yet truth endures while falsehood comes to an evil end
|Oppression and injustice
shall be destroyed,
But true dealings shall endure forever.
|Do not hesitate to speak the
truth when you should speak,
And do not hide your wisdom as a treasure.
|Contend for the truth unto
And the Lord will establish your cause.
|Truth is the bridge between
earth and heaven,
The brightest jewel in the crown of virtue.
|Truth is the seal of God;
He who has truth in his heart has God for his guide.
