Lying Lips Are An Abomination

Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, but those who are truthful are his delight.  Proverbs 12:22, New American Bible

Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord: but they that deal faithfully please him.  Proverbs 12:22, Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible

Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight.  Proverbs 12:22, Catholic Women's Devotional Bible (NRSV)

Lying lips are abomination to the Lord:  but they that deal truly are his delight.  Proverbs 12:22, The Holy Bible, King James Version

Lying lips are an abomination t the Lord, but those who act faithfully are his delight.  Proverbs 12:22, The Ignatius Bible

The other day I found a link to the Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible (http://www.drbo.org/index.htm).  I have it on my nook, but I put a shortcut on my laptop.  While reading a sample book I came across Proverbs 12:22 and I started wondering about the different translations which you see above.

What I found fascinating about this Scripture in particular, was that the first part of the verse NEVER changes.  All the verses say, "Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord," while the rest changes slightly.

Apparently, lying IS an abomination!
