Lord's Day 43

  • Q. 112.  What is required in the ninth commandment?
    A.  That I bear false witness against no man,1 nor falsify any man’s words;2 that I be no backbiter, nor slanderer;3 that I do not judge, nor join in condemning any man rashly or unheard;4 but that I avoid all sorts of lies and deceit5 as the proper works of the devil, unless I would bring down upon me the heavy wrath of God;6 likewise, that in judgment and all other dealings I love the truth, speak it uprightly, and confess it;7 also that I defend and promote, as much as I am able, the honor and good character of my neighbor.8
