What is Exodus 23:1?
Exodus 23:1 “Do not spread false reports. Do not help a guilty person by being a malicious witness.”
From the King James Bible, it is “Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.”
The 23rd Chapter is in a section of Exodus immediately following the presentation of the Ten Commandments. In these chapters, God instructs Moses (Exodus 21:1) “These are the laws you are to set before them.” “Them” refers to the Israelites Moses is leading.
The beginning of Chapter 23 specifically deals with laws about being truthful in the treatment of everyone including the poor, foreigners and enemies.
