The Ninth Commandment: You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor

1. This command focuses on public testimony in civil conflicts, the message of a prophet, and domestic disputes.

2. The penalty for breaking this command focuses on equity and is designed to purge evil from society by causing people to fear God and not show inappropriate pity.

3. Jesus Christ is our example of a truthful witness, and His word is a guide for all our speech.
