Deuteronomy 19:17

Hebrew Bible

15 A single witness may not testify against another person for any trespass or sin that he commits. A matter may be legally established only on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 16 If a false witness testifies against another person and accuses him of a crime, 17 then both parties to the controversy must stand before the Lord, that is, before the priests and judges who will be in office in those days. 18 The judges will thoroughly investigate the matter, and if the witness should prove to be false and to have given false testimony against the accused, 19 you must do to him what he had intended to do to the accused. In this way you will purge the evil from among you.

Proverbs 14:25

Hebrew Bible

23 In all hard work there is profit,but merely talking about it only brings poverty. 24 The crown of the wise is their riches, but the folly of fools is folly. 25 A truthful witness rescues lives, but one who testifies falsely betrays them. 26 In the fear of the Lord one has strong confidence, and it will be a refuge for his children. 27 The fear of the Lord is like a life-giving fountain, to turn people from deadly snares.
