But liars we can never trust,
Even when they say what is true.
And he who does one fault at first
And lies to hide it, makes it two.

Have we not known, nor heard, nor read
How God does hate deceit and wrong?
How Ananias was struck dead,
Caught with a lie upon his tongue?

When she came in, and grew so bold
As to confirm that wicked lie,

Psalm 26

Nor from thy law my feet depart.

I hate to walk, I hate to sit,
With men of vanity and lies

[Hata Bildir]
