Proverbs 6:19

A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

A false witness that speaketh lies,.... Or, "that speaketh lies, even a false witness" {f}; and so this is distinguished from a lying tongue, the second of these evils: this is the sin of bearing false witness against one's neighbour, a breach of the eighth command. It may be rendered, "he that bloweth lies" {g}; that raises lies, and spreads them abroad, and swears to them, to the damage of others. This makes the sixth; and the seventh follows,

and him that soweth discord among brethren; whether in a natural relation, or in a civil society, or in a religious community.
