Deceit and the Bible

Deceit Is falsehood. Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy statutes: for their deceit is falsehood. Psalms 119:118

The tongue is the instrument of deceit. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips. Romans 3:13

Deceit comes from the heart. Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. Mark 7:22

Deceit is a characteristic of the heart. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9

God abhors deceit. Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man. Psalms 5:6 

Deceit is forbidden. 
Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and deceive not with thy lips. Proverbs 24:28
For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile. 1 Peter 3:10

Christ was perfectly free from deceit. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Isaiah 53:9 
Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth. 1 Peter 2:22 2
