Distance yourself from falsehood


"How do we know that if someone owes three people a maneh, they should not arrange for one of them to be the plaintiff and the other two to serve as witnesses, to draw from him a maneh for them to split? It is written, 'Distance yourself from falsehood.'"

מנין לשלשה שנושין מנה באחד, שלא יהא אחד בעל דין ושנים עדים כדי שיוציאו מנה ויחלוקו? ת"ל: מדבר שקר תרחק. 

(Talmud, Shevuot 31a)

Have a great day,
