Even when they say what is true.
And he who does one fault at first
And lies to hide it, makes it two.

How God does hate deceit and wrong?
How Ananias was struck dead,
Caught with a lie upon his tongue?

And, like a robe, his glory wears.

The heav'ns are for his curtains spread,
The unfathomed deep he makes his bed.

[Hata Bildir]
