Proverbs 12:28 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

22 Lying lips are an abhorrence to Jahve,

     And they that deal truly are His delight.

The frame of the distich is like Proverbs 11:1, Proverbs 11:20. אמוּנה is probity as the harmony between the words and the inward thoughts. The lxx, which translates ὁ δὲ ποιῶν πίστεις, had in view עשה אמונים (עשׂה אמוּנים, cf. Isaiah 26:2); the text of all other translations agrees with that commonly received.
